I think #3 is just a tad out of focus....But I like the shot alot because her position and the horses position is just about as perfect as you can get.
As for the hat....only time anyone wears a hat is at the big shows where there's a dress code. Even then....no one likes wearin one...because if you loose it....there's a fine. She's never lost hers tho...cuz she has a stampede string.
I do really like #2 as well. A friend of ours seen the picture...he's always joking with her. He said, "Looks like in the #2 shot that both of them are in a big hurry to get to the porta can" Aaaaaaaaahahahahaha
