Looks like a lovely horse. I think you could be rewarded more if I could see more.. or if nothing else the judging remarks could be more helpful. use some zoom if you can . rider and horse look suited. rider work for independent hands and steadier connection. good luck

Directions for the camera person:
45
46
1. In landscape orientation, Place the camera directly centered at/ behind “C” 3 to 6 feet from the rail (for competition this is not possible but they are right next to the judge) stand on the lower step of a mounting block ( this is the same height/ view as from of the stand the judges table is on). The horse must not be out of the camera frame at any time in the test.
47
keep horse in viewfinder: horse must not leave video at any time.
48
2. Keep the camera centered on the horse on the centerlines.
49
50
Keep the horse in the LAST one third of the viewing screen in Landscape view ( 2/3 of the viewscreen in front of moving horse). This will allow the “judge” to see approximately two letters in front of the horse which is necessary for depth per
51
52
3. ception and line evaluation. In general, keep the horse’s feet in the bottom 1/3 of the viewfinder.
53
54
4. Zoom is ABSOLUTELY necessary. On a camera or iPhone/Droid (most have a capability of 10X) for the 20x60 ring zoom for the far end of the ring is generally 3.5 to 4 (horse to take up 1/3 of the viewfinder and must not exceed ½) . Try to zoom only once on a movement .( although it may be necessary to also reduce zoom in the same movement ) For the small ring 20 x 40 zoom for the upper half or the ring generally tends to be 2 or 2.5 .
55
56
5. Reduce Zoom back to 1x as the horse comes past X towards / near the “C” end . You will naturally have a moment of two where the horse passes directly in front of / and near the camera. It is not always a whole horse view but keep the camera moving with the horse. If the horse is required to perform a movement directly at “C”,be sure to move the camera so the viewer sees the feet/steps and head/neck connection throughout the movement. This simulates what a judge actually sees when a horse is so close.
