what settings do you use to take the best outdoor pictures

Depends on the lens, time of day or if it's sunny/cloudy... But generally speaking if I am using a 200mm and holding the camera, then I will use Shutter Priority to keep the shutter at 1/250th to keep the blur down. Let the camera take care of the rest.

Completely different if I am using a tripod or need a long exposure, so there's a lot of right answers to the question.

What's the one thing you always do when taking pictures?

Shoot it. I don't ever pass up a shot regardless of whether it seems right or not. I can delete it later but some of my best shots were shots that at the moment I thought, that shot sucks.

Yes my trainers have discussed it with them. She has sent them information on multiple horses that I might would've been interested in.

It sounds like maybe they're not comfortable with buying one yet. Keep showing them you're ready and maybe they'll come around soon,

Any advice on how to get my parents to buy me a horse? I've been riding for a long time and my trainer knows I'm ready but my parents aren't convinced

That's tough... Have your trainers talked to them about being ready?

Thanks for the advice! I'm getting paid this summer to be a counselor at camps at the ban and I feel ill have drama for that but I really want my own horse (I'm getting paid) and so I'm doing all I can to be able to pay for it myself

No problem, just keep working towards what you want and ignore the hate.

I started riding again last summer. I went to the barn everyday. I showed this past season and I won every class but 2 (I got second) (I was in over 30 classes) and everybody that shows with me thinks I'm a show brat and get whatever I want. I don't own the horse and I work for lessons(PT 1)

See part 2

Do you have any advice for the hate? Idk how to tell them I'm not a rich snotty brat (PT 2 last one)

To be honest, you can't please everyone and there will always be jealousy to deal with if you're successful. If they won't listen, then you can't do much... You only have to worry about pleasing yourself, and you already know why you were successful.

Just keep doing what you do to be your best.
