Best time of day to avoid over and under exposure

I did a photoshoot this weekend and we shot for most of the day starting at 10 am. I di alot of equestrian photography and I was shooting a stallion for his owner.

It didn’t seem to matter where I moved or where I had her move the horse, it was either blown out or too dark, too much highlight of too much shadow. I kept my F stops below f8 for good DOF and I kept my ISO at 400 or less, most of the time it was at 100 as it was super sunny. I had my shutter speet pretty high, betweek 250 and 500. Should I have had it higher? Should I have been shooting in the evening? Here are some samples from the shoot. [ Join Discussion ]
