My daughter, Lynn Symansky, #32 had a very successful go at Rolex. Although we will be purchasing some professional pictures, many of you who are amateurs also take some excellent pictures and videos. IF anyone has any that they would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if it is a video clip of only one or two jumps, it would be appreciated as USEFNETWORk only captured a few of her jumps. I hope I am not breaking any COTH Forum rules with this request
My friend's brother prob has some, I'll be sure to see if he does, I know he'd be happy to share. Huge congrats to Lynn and everyone that is a part of her team and support network. I've never met Lynn but I live in Herndon and have competed/volunteered at difficult run any times so was definitely routing for the hometown talent! They looked fabulous!!
Here is a link to my photobucket where I have placed the images that I have. I will send you the high-resolution files, too. I have not altered the photos at all - they would look even better with a little brightening up. Wouldn't it be neat if, amongst all of us, you were able to get pictures from EVERY jump? Come on COTHers....I have fence #14 covered.
Tell your daughter it was a pleasure and a privilege to watch ALL of the riders at the event. They have inspired me to get my butt in gear and to be the best rider I can be.
I took a ton of pictures too. Most of my XC shots were from the Sunken Road (Jump 13) or the Hollow (Jump 17). I'll take a look and see what I can find!
Well darn it, of course I just happened to be walking from the Sunken Road TO the Hollow, so I got Lynn at fence 14 too! I'm almost underneath the tree in the ditch - kind of a neat perspective. I'll send them over.
ETA - I found some show jumping pictures too. I was sitting far back in the covered seating with a zoom lens, so they're not super clear, but I got a few at the end that I think you'll like. She's got a huge grin on her face, waving to the cheering crowd.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
Your daughter was so so so impressive this weekend, she and her horse are clearly something very special. I hadn't payed that close until I saw her SJ round on TV- the USET better be knocking down her door now, or there's no hope for us!
I took a great one of her over the Ditch and Wall on my iPhone. Posted on Facebook and I think Lynn is tagged, but I will email tomorrow just in case. As someone else said too, I know LAZ took tons of pictures and she is an awesome photographer so hopefully she might have a few to share
Not to hijak but I'd love some of Daniel Clasing and Houston if anyone got a good one
I'm sure I have a few!!! (Okay, more than a few.... i took about 5,000 pictures during the 5 days...). My mom and I "met" him at the TB for All event on Friday. She lived in the same part of Maryland that he is located in. We were sure to cheer extra loud for him during the x-c and show jumping!
And to the OP- How exciting for you! I'm sure I have some to send you.
Just give me a few days to look through them all. I am just uploading to facebook. I will be going through and labeling them all this week.
