There are lots of horse farms in the area where we live, some of them quite large. We pass by them when we go for one of our walks.

One day we saw a lot of cars and trucks with horse trailers headed down the road to one of the farms, so we decided to walk in that direction and see what was up. Turns out that one of the farms was having a horse show and those trailers were carrying the contestants.

The show was just dressage, where the horses go through a series of movements in a small arena, or do a series of moves to music. None of that interesting stuff like jumping over fences or steeplechase, but still worth watching on a pleasant summer day. In terms of photography, most of the pictures I got were something only a horse fancier would appreciate.

On the way out, we saw these giant sunflowers, so heavy with seeds that their heads were bent over. I shot this in black and white and darkened the sky a little to add tonal balance.
