    Red face Help me pick!

    Long story short, my junior hunter and I just had our first show together in three years, debuting in the A/O's. After a really rocky road of mysterious lameness issues, bouts of colic, my being too sick to ride for almost two years, and moving across the country by ourselves, we're FINALLY back! I seriously can't believe it.

    Anyhow, it wasn't a perfect show, but it was so fun and so special. I really want to buy a picture to remind myself how lucky I am. I need some help picking which one is the best, since I'm unable to be impartial when it comes to Jake. He's always perfect Also, ignore the glasses-- I lost a contact 10 minutes before my class.

    I love the last one because you're smiling! You can always get an ear fix if you wanted to. P.S. Howie is the best, my mom has known him forever and he takes awesome pictures

    I like the second one, especially if they can crop in to remove the jumps in the foreground.

    I couldn't hep but smile. He was being sooo cute. The ring was *very* spooky for Jake (if anyone has ever been to the Denver National Western Stock Show, you understand) and he didn't quite get why the outside five couldn't be done in three. I swear, he's 13 going on 6. It makes me happy that he still feels good enough to be spunky!

    I wish I could put my face in the last one on the first one. Although I like the second one too!

    I like the second one or the last one. Definitely love that you're smiling in the last one. Recognized the stock show jumps/ring right away! Glad the course was better set for pics this year. All of the good horse pics I had from last year were butt shots, lol.

    I like the first one the best, although they are all nice. His knees, his expression, his ears and your position are all perfect in the first one. Lovely.

    I like first and last, but from your description of what you guys have been through I have to say the one with the smile is the best! So glad for you guys, good for you for hanging in there. Have a blast!

    I like the 3rd one because the horse looks best in the air and I like the last one because you are smiling.

    I like the second one and the last one. But ultimately it'll have to be the one you like best, because they all are good.

    I can't pick just one! I love them all! The second is striking in the position they got you guys, but I love the smiling one! Then the other two are great, as well! I would get them all!

    You will have other shows where you will have other pretty jump pics. But will you ever have another show with a picture that captures the moment better than in picture four? I doubt it! I vote number four!
