Sports feature: Jockey, Ruth Scherer

Ruth Scherer has ridden horses all her life. When she was 15 years-old she was put on her first racing horse. And she was off. However countless injuries and other responsibilities have left Ruth unable to jockey until now- this is her first year racing. In a sport that is male-dominated, Ruth was welcomed by long time friends and jockeys, Julie Vettman and Kelly Spanabel, at the Mount Pleasant Meadows racetrack.

    Is this the final cut of them, laid out for the story? Because I love the new ones you posted! The colors are so great, and you got some awesome action! I love the one with the people in the stands blurred in the foreground, that was a nice touch.

    However, this set of pictures is really great and emotional. It definitely gives you an intimate look at the person.

    Again, I compliment you; you have a great dedication, and it shows! Good work.
