This last weekend I assisted my photography teacher from a few years back with shooting horses (with a camera that is). The horses on display are of the Paso Fino breed, direct descendants of the horses brought over by the conquistadors. These horses were used by the conquistadors when they wanted to be seen, the equivalent of modern day cruising in a low rider. The horse has a very animated action where it steps very high and has lots of vertical movement in it's legs for very little forward motion. The ride is completely smooth for the rider though. I learned quite a bit about horses, and this breed in general. Consquently we made a little bit of money selling the photographs as well.
