    I think this might be my favorite. It's that moment before the buzzer sounds, when anything is possible.

    The one that really sums up who my Billy horse is:
    http://pets.webshots.com/photo/24446...94686761AkEtOy
    He had never schooled open water before when we headed into the show ring where he was faced with a legitimate open water jump AND a big liverpool out in front of a vertical. Trooper that he is, he jumped both without a second thought.

    My favorite of my just-turned-4yo baby came from a clinic:
    http://pets.webshots.com/photo/23462...94686761EzmZXW

    Not to leave out my mare who I kind of randomly hop on and pop over bigger jumps than the gal who's been pseudo-leasing her: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/21182...94686761gbNzvk

    Gee, here I was relieved that the show season was over (because of the insanity added in by my insane work travel schedule), and now I'm wishing for spring again!

    TR - there are some GREAT shots of both Aero and Dodger from your KSP adventures....you should be so proud of your boys!

    I know I'm cheating a little bit but, this is my favorite photo from our Breed Inspection Season this year.

    Great pictures, everybody.

    Here is one of my favorites. Not sure why I like it so much, since it's nothing special. It's just that this horse and I have formed a great bond this year (okay, maybe it's just ME ). We started out showing 2' hunter classes this year and we are now schooling 3'6" jumper courses. He's just a special horse to me.

    And my greenbean OTTB doing a "poles" class. He's up to schooling 2'9" now, but it's not always pretty. (wiggles a lot still, but we're working on it.).

    I don't know if this counts since it is not from a show (or even english), but this is my perfect hunter packer and I. He is my heart horse, the dog is my heart dog and that was the best vacation ever in Big South Fork!

    This would be my favorite show pic of him from this season: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...43029495lrTBFo

    flogarty, I just got new glasses and I can see my screen soooo much better, but your picture is too tiny even for my newly corrected vision! I would like to see your friend's horse, it looks really cute! Can we have a slightly larger picture?

    Here is my favourite (the link is to a proof but the photo itself is on my mantel) - Darla & I. We had just jumped around our first 1m class, which isn't all that enormous but is a huge step up for this mare and I. I was scared by some of the big oxers set on a tight indoor course, but my super little mare packed me around. As soon as we passed the timers, I dropped the reins and hugged her.

    This one would have been a sure favourite as well, if the giant green standards weren't in the way.

    This is my favorite of my homebred KWPN mare Breathtaking (Abba). This was her first big class. It was 1.05-1.10m. It was a 5 yo qualifier and she wasn't really ready. She had a rail down. But it was the first day in which she really jumped and she also proved she would take any challenge.

    Not me riding her by the way!

    Love my Ab Fab!

    And another from a 1meter course

    Now I'm going to look at everyone else's pics! The photo was taken by jumpingaction.net and I have permission to use. Permission to use after I bought the big one!

    I have a few I like of my new girl! These were taken at her second show in Canada, after 3 weeks out of quarentine. I was so thrilled with how she was for the 2 weeks of showing, I could not have asked for her to be any better!
