Using flash with moving horses is pretty difficult. The easiest way is to pump a lot of light into the arena, covering a large area, so you can take a couple of shots as the horse moves. The farther away the light, the less the falloff. But the farther away, the more you need power to get adequate illumination.

And you need a small aperture so that the flash freezes the action and the ambiant light does not allow for the exposure of blur.


BAK, have you tried using a better beamer for horses in the arena?  Not as elegant as large area lighting but a cheap and an effective way to extend the range of a hot-shoe flash.
