    VERY COOL! It looks like I missed out on a GREAT weekend with my girl. Oh well, maybe in 2011!

    Thank you again for the wonderful photos!

    Were you able to get more photos of Obstacle #4 ("Mick's Mountain")? It drew quite a crowd, and really demonstrated how a driver has to carefully balance speed with control. One driver whiplashed her 'gator right off the carriage when she went screaming (literally) down the hill and hit the bottom a bit harder than anticipated. 'Gator was up and remounted very quickly, but there was some interesting language being heard by the gallery.

    A great day - no injuries. One scary incident at the logs but God bless these horses, they are so brave.

    Wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!

    I really, really hope you don't mind that I shared your slide shows with my friends in the Northern California driving club. They all have asked me to pass on their thanks for the fabulous photos!

    I wish I could have gotten to more obstacles but was running score sheets for obstacle 2 and 3 so had to stay close. Just got to slip out to four for one horse... Luckily my SO was willing to do most of the cart driving so I could take pictures. You're welcome to share them CDE Driver but thanks for asking <s> I just take them to share the experience and hope more people will get hooked <g>

    Ah, well that explains it. No problems. I couldn't get any pics at all as I was judging and you certainly can't be shooting pics while watching the action. It was a total blast. I'm having serious pony lust now, and can't wait for my next lesson!

    I've got a couple of 4 that I took while surveying it while competitors were walking it, but I have no idea how to post them from my photobucket account. Got a couple of cones, too, but again, I was working and couldn't get too many. Then the batteries on the camera died. I'm afraid there is no future in professional photography for me!

    Looks like you have the makings of a coffee table book? Just to many great pictures for a calendar. Thank you for sharing.
