Barrel Racing Behind the Scenes

Sometimes I haul my camera when barrel racing. Sometimes I get behind the scenes images. These are undoubtedly my favorite. There are dogs, lots of gorgeous horses, lots of gals that love their horses, and friendships to be forged and grown.
At the Prospector Challenge last weekend in Rapid City, SD, I broke out the camera for about an hour. I’d have loved to have done more, but I had a major tennis elbow flare up. The good news — I discovered Back on Track leg boots helped me, so I ordered myself some Back on Track elbow braces. Go00000, horse products! The bad news — I saw countless photo-ops that I missed due to my elbows.
But despite missing the golden hour, and the early morning hours of feed time, I did mange to capture a few images that I love. If you see an image of your friends let them know, or an image of yourself or your horse that you’d love to own, please let me know!
While there is always lots of color at barrel races, I love the feel and emotion that black and white photos emit.
I’m grateful I was able to capture these moments. And of course, I’m for hire.
