Show jumping

This weekend, I had the chance to watch a full equestrian competition, that included Jumping and Polo. As I told you before, I love horses and would love to have the skills to practice this sport. The event took place in Quillota, a city located 120 Km northwest from Santiago, where I went for some days for work. Quillota is well known for its plantations of avocados and cherimoyas.

Excellent action shot. It looks like a beautiful spot. I love both avocados and cherimoyas. Guess I'll have to visit there.

The BBC used to show all the major UK horse shows, but alas now they don't.

Nice action shot. I don't know if your camera has any type of manual control, but a slightly shorter shutter speed would been ideal to freeze the action.

curly: Actually my camera is very automatic. I sacrificed the ability to change many settings for a smaller and more portable size. I'm thinking on changing it again though
