Gotta be #3.

1 is good on the horse but I can't see the rider's face and for me 
that kills it.

2 is also good on the horse but the rider's posture is so out of 
whack I can't imagine she did well, and it destroys the impact of the 
photo - she's not working with the horse, she's going against it.

3 is all that's left.  You clipped the horse's tail a little and it 
could use a little less DOF, for my money, just to make it pop, but 
it's still a very nice shot and definitely the class entry of this 

Unless, of course, I'm wrong.  Which has never happened before.
Ever.  Really.
