Somebody got herself a new camera AND a new lens and found herself the perfect place to test it out.  (It’s not one of those really cool big ones with a lens that looks like the Hubble telescope, but it does the trick.)  Mind you, the “official” story I gave the hubster was that it was for the kid’s soccer/lacrosse/rugby/horse shows, but I’m pretty sure he’s not buying that.

Let’s just say I went a bit crazy at Gladstone last weekend getting acquainted with my new toy.  Note to self: The continuous shooting feature is a bit addictive.  Anywhooo, here are a few snaps that might give you a taste of the action at the USEF Dressage Festival of Champions.  Hope you enjoy!
