Generally shooting sports you want a long lens. This is because you cannot always get close to the action. Now I think your situation may not be typical in that you will most likely be shooting your friends while you participate in the sport. If this is the case caring around a camera on a horse can be a bit risky. I have taken a few falls from horse and I don't think I would want a big camera and lens to come between me and the ground.

Now if you are just shooting as an observer rather then a participant in the sport.. Long lens comes in very handy, Tripod or monopon to help hold the long lens still...

Good luck..

Mike
