That is where digital photography scores over film - you can see the results quickly and adjust as necessary, but that isn't always possible because you are capturing the moment.

I tend to use spot metering with the horses as they are often backlit, that results in overexposed backgrounds - it was interesting to read in one of those articles that grass was close to 18% grey - I guess you could use the grass to measure exposure, lock that and compose - I wonder if the grey sand in the manege is close to 18% grey?
