Along with another fellow redbubbler, KneeKnee, we were lurking in the bushes waiting for the race to start …. the noise as they approached was quite amazing!

    This is a totally brilliant action shot – you’ve captured the excitement of the horses and the determination of the jockeys …. I love the sound of horses galloping especially towards you as it is such a primeval sound … gets the adrenalin going as your body matches the ‘fear flight’ response in the horse or sometimes just the sheer joy of galloping so fast! Sorry, I do go on when it comes to horses but they have been my life!

  • Hi Jen, wonderful to read your comments, so very pleased you like it. I must say I agree with you it was a primeval sound them hurtling towards us, very exciting! Thank you :D
