This has an excellent composition, texture, and depth.
The precise moment of the photo of the main horse actually gives the entire photo a sense of action and speed.
I like the placement of the main horse and rider in relation to the background horses and riders.
Also good choice to have the background almost uniform, because I think smaller clouds would've distracted from the image. I think the image is stronger in b/w than it would've been in color. But I keep thinking I would like to see this image with limited color, maybe only complementary colors.
Good job :)
What do you think?

Wonderful shot. It's also really nice to see traditions carried on. Horse racing seems to have many.

I don't really like this sport, but nonetheless, this is a really great action picture. c: Love how its feet aren't touching the ground.

Pacers usually don't have all four feet off of the ground at the same time! Amazing shot you got :)

actually, it's a trotter (pacers move their legs laterally wheras trotters move their legs in diagonal pairs) and there is a moment of suspension in the trot when the horse switches between pairs of legs
it really is an awesome shot though! :D
