September '09 Paradise Horse Trial

Hey, we lucked out! While the rest of the state was under water, we had to remind ourselves that we were, indeed, in Paradise. Or on the edge of it anyway.. That nasty system moved up I-85 and went right above us, leaving us with a nice comfortable day, albeit 95% humidity. Most important of all, my cameras stayed dry!

As of now I've finished the uploading, so if you rode and still see empty gallery, send me a message!

Hey, I'm trying hard to get the work flow down so that HoofClix can offer at least some video at the horse trials coming up this fall. Below is an example of my capture and how I have edited and added text to the movie shown.

Here is the video also inserted into the rider gallery:

From that rider gallery you may either download a small web-movie (shown above) or a file designed to be burned to DVD or transfered to your i-Pod or other movie player.

The idea would be to offer limited video on dressage day at my horse trials, on an FCFS basis, and I would deliver a range of products from it, above being one, and an actual DVD another.

What do you think??!!

Full Gallop Horse Trial, May 30, 2009

For me it was my last horse trial until returning to this same venue for August 28-30.

This added June 3rd.. I've finished the uploading as far as I can see, so if you can't see your pictures, do let me know...

Looking forward to introducing video for dressage and/or stadium at the August Full Gallop.. It will be f-c-f-s for the show, but I'm excited about it..

Carolina Carriage Club HDT @ FENCE

Well, I had a blast for the weekend, and I think the rain on Sunday actually made it all a little more fun! I was up the creek again on Marathon day, and I did get some good stuff for all, but especially for the Prelim and Int drivers who drove the creek..

At this point all the pictures are posted up, but I'm still finding a few errors in galleries. We should have all phases for each of you, so If you don't see a phase, let me know and I'll search again.

A reminder to you that I video'd the dressage phase on Saturday. I still have all of the files, so it's just $30 for a DVD, and $5 discount if purchased in combo with the photo CD, or a minimum of $100 print order. Use this: ORDER FORM

Chattahoochee Hills Mudfest, May 15-17

Regardless of the mud at the end, it was a great weekend! I was the second to last out, Joanna's Blue Box the last one I believe, and I just got a running start and ski'd up the hill as best I could..

Pics are loading now, and as many of you might not know, I put string them from low to high. If you are itching to see yours, just send me an e-mail, and I can cut into the line with yours...

Called in on this just a few weeks ago, so I did my best to gather my A team for three days of all phases. We did pretty well I think, especially considering the rain. There were a few dressage rides at the end of BN on Saturday that did not get phowtoed, as a camera was shorting in the rain, so please forgive on that. As alway, there will be a few mixed up galleries.. Just tell me and I'll move them...

Very much looking forward to next time.

Facebook Ready Buying Option Now Available!!!

So, let me go ahead and start the next internet photography revolution! Starting right now a Web-Ready gallery is available for $50 for any gallery I have on line. Max width or height will be 350 pixels, and I'll put a little logo in there where it won't interfere with the crux of the image. I'll give this a trial until after my May horse trial, the last before the Fall season in the south kicks in, then make a decision as to whether to continue this.....

Save the two pics I have put into a sample gallery, unprotected, is here:

I'll eventually amend my order form to include the option, but for now jst use my on-line order form and write Web-Ready Gallery Download and $50 in the appropriate space. I'll then set up your gallery to allow you to save them from there, and that does it.


My fax machine is standing by!

FENCE April 4, 2009

What a gorgeous day it was! A bit breezy, but we got just about the best succession of weather, with th rain a few days earlier and the wind the day before to take off the mush...

Let's all thank the FENCE staff for sticking to the show so this long-running event could keep on going.

At this point all the galleries have been uploaded, but don't hesitate to contact me if you have an questions.

Pine Top March 21 & 22

Well it was about time to have some non-rainy shirtsleeve weather for a whole weekend!

All pics from the show are posted. There are a few problems in that I had pics for #97 and #86, but I didn't have a name on the roster for those pinney numbers. If anyone knows who those are, please email me so I can correct the gallery names.

Also there will undoubtedly be a few mixed up pics. If you see some in your galleries, do let me know so I can figure them out.

See you at Pine Top again in the fall....

What A Six Weeks..

It seems like the past six weeks have gone by in a blur.. What could I have been thinking? Eight horse trials in six weeks and the snowbirds will be packing up their horses and migrating northward via Southern Pines, The Fork, you name it.. I've had a blast so far. Everything is posted and delivered at this point but don't hesitate to call me or e-mail if you have any questions or issues....

Pine Top Jan 31/Feb 1, 2009

Brrrrr... Well, it may have been cold, but the cold is really yet to come. It was a sight to see Janet driving throught the Frogpond to break up the ice.

I'll be without a fast connection over the next few days, but I'll do my best to get your images up and all photos ordered at the show delivered as soon as possible. Be patient please, and if you're coming to Full Gallop and Sporting Days, you can certainly still drop by my trailer to see your pics.

Hey everyone! Yes, I was in Aiken on Saturday. I had a few trainees there taking shots. You used it as a schooling show, and so did I.........

Sorry that keeping up with numbers proved to be extremely difficult, so I'v just posted by division...

Pics are posting now, so enjoy. Mark

Go In Peace, Peter

The eyes always told us all we needed to know. The handshake always affirmed it. While I didn't know you well, we'll all miss you, man....

Ark Frostbite, January 10, 2009

Yes folks, HoofClix was there! As the XC was pulled back, and as I had personally something come up, trusty Eileen covered it solo. She has sent me all the images so I can sort them out and post them on the site. Please be patient as I get them up. It should be by Wednesday, I'll guess.
