  1. Please see my Dressage post for an overview of eventing.

    This post covers the third day of the event, stadium jumping.
    Stadium is a traditional show jumping course with difficult fences that must be cleared within a time limit.

    A sad story. Kristin was in first place and on the way to the win when she unexplainedly had a mental lapse and went off
    course causing their elimination. It was not this rail, but the fact that she jumped this fence out of order that did her in.

  5. Thanks!
    They all have their EXIF data.
    Stadium was shot with a D2x + 70-200 and a D200 with 18-200.
    All were ISO 200, aperture priority in the f/4 to f/7 range.
    Primary processing done with NC 4 and finished up in PSCS3.
