I never thought of a one image HDR and have programs to do it..

I have my doubts that you can accomplish more with "one image HDR" than you can with appropriate tweaking of PV2012 sliders and Tone Curve. But I haven't really tried that, and could be uninformed on that.

Also, must try bracketing as you say, if the shots fire quick enough it may just work.

In daylight, you can often have a fast enough shutter speed so the 2 or 3 shots can be aligned adequately in post processing. Obviously, you need a static subject, and be extra careful to avoid camera movement. A monopod helps.

I'm curious what the original image looked like. Where was the sun in relation to you and the girl-on-horse? Was the girl in silhouette?

I did take a look at the .NEF. It appears the sun was behind the clouds, just off the horse's rump. That makes exposure very difficult.
