I used to run 'barrels' for fun after my pleasure/equitation lessons we would have gymkhanas for fun and pole bending, barrels, sit-a-buck, and quad wrangle were some of my favorites even if I wasn't the best at them lol!
I miss riding a lot.. and I really miss the horses..
Some of my ribbons from our gymkhanas/schooling shows
So much fun! My old guy is 27 and retired now, but he put me in the money a good amount of times. I've had him for 16 years. Now I ride horses my neighbor gets in, to make sure they're safe, or to road train them. Miss running the circuit though.
I ran high school rodeo for years and have just last year retired my all around horse she's 25. We hadn't ran much the last two years on the account he has a bad heart murmor but last January I bought me a paint filly I'm breaking and gonna train to turn n burn for me. Don't know if she's gonna turn out to be what I need but if she isn't I'll find another one this winter n sell her she's really cute just a little small has a good motor tho
My daughter is really into showing. She loves the barrels most of all. We're working with a new horse this year that is a green 5 yr old. Think she'll have a fantastic horse in a couple years. Cowgirl is athletic enough to start placing once she's solid.... For some reason I can't post attachments or I'd post a fantastic pic from this last year when Lizzie was riding our old guy (her mare was having some issues....wanted to buck instead of work) and he was at just the right place in his stride that when they came around the last barrel and she let up on the rains and told him to go....he did!! The pic shows him leaping forward and the surprise on her face is hilarious....she's now yelling WHOA!
