Interesting composite, Carla. Very creative blending of multiple images. I agree the horse is the best part; it looks very alert and in control. #10423285

For me, the horse is the hero in this creation. The horse, rider and jump was photographed during the stadium jumping portion of a 3 day equine event. There isn't anything pretty about arena jumping and so I replaced the b/g. I replaced the riders original green jacket to better compliment the horse. The original rider was looking away towards the next jump and I replaced her head/helmet.
