2018 New York State Fair Four (4) Horse Hitch Competition

Up-close portraits of the teams with competition action shots.

This series was captured on Sunday, September 2, 2018 during the lead up to the Registered Mares – 4 Horse Hitch (Class: 1502) of the Draft category.

I used a Canon EOS-1ds Mark III body with the Canon Lens EF 70 – 300 IS USM lens, Hoya UV filter.  No flash.

Standing outside the stadium, in the bright sun, the teams road to the stadium from the barn.

There was a long wait for the second team that allowed me some fantastic closeups.

These are inside the stadium, from the bleachers.

  1. The detail! Lovely, Michael and glad you’re back- was concerned as it’s been awhile since your last post.😎🙏


  2. Wow this is incredible, Michael! Thank you for sharing these photos. I’ve loved horses ever since I was a little kid. That last one particularly moved me – the legs in motion is so good.

    Nice to connect with you. Hope you are well. 🙂
