This was kind of fun and I thought I would share. At the last horse show I was at, a little girl asked if she could ride my 25 year old almost blind mare (we call her sun) in the barrel race or "horse race" as she called it. I thought that this was adorable so I said yes.
Well you won't believe it but Sun won the whole thing!!! Over all in youth and open! She beat me on my barrel horse! Sun ran a barrel pattern of 16.3 seconds in a larger arena! The little girl had the biggest grin on and actually stuck the blue ribbon she got in sun's headstall to show it off.
I love it when my horses just make someones day
