Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. I Corinthians 9: 24

The horses run faster

To please their master...

At the County Fair...

There are no slow striders,

As hoofs beat the air...

A lot depends on the riders

And how they train their horses,

In their practice courses...

Poetry by me, AJP

I shot this image August 12th last summer at our County Fair.. and steadied the camera on the fence post... I decided to do a diptych on this particular shot of the same rider just before he went around the barrel with his horse and after he passed it....They were all skilled riders, but I liked how this young rider was very much at ease with his horse.
