This photo of the week features my sister Catherine riding her horse Kalle in their final heat of Barrel Racing for the 2012 season. Together they earned the season title of Grand Champion for Division D in the Massachusetts Rough Riders circuit! She also passed her Massachusetts Riding Instructor Exam last week. Great job, Catherine!
Notes: This photo was taken with my Canon T2i DLSR camera with a 18-55mm EF-S lens. The focal length was 55mm with the aperture set at f/4.5 and ISO 100. I got really lucky that this shot came out in focus as I panned the camera without sighting it in an attempt to catch this lightning-fast finish!
