    For those not familiar with the sport, skilled women and girls ride a course around barrels to see who is the fastest. Skill, determination and a good horse required. Action, a sequence or two, and informal portraits.

    Wayne -- the tiny girls were so amazing the little girl in blue with the big hat was absolutely fearless and rode like a cavalry trooper. Only a second slower than the top few "big girls" and women. Though she was in a different sport, she / they reminded me of my daughter at the same age. Your rider has the same quality. Thanks!
  3. How about 8 - 12 year old girls and boys riding a 20 kilometer race across the steppe, sometimes bareback?
