I never have anyone to video tape me. Every time I try getting my mom to, she forgets because she's too busy chatting.

I run at 2 different arenas, both outdoor. One has a larger pattern, another has a smaller one, but it's still larger then what I've seen on TV for a "small NBHA pattern"

My best time at the larger arena was a 20.2, I think the arena record was a low 19. At the other place, my best time was a 17.8? I believe, and the arena record is a 17.6, I was SOOOO close. And that was on my 13.3 pony. You should have seen the looks that I got. LoL. The fast horses run in the 19's there. All depends on what the arena is like that day. (Slower if muddy, faster if really dry)

My mare is pretty consistent, low 17's - low 18's, depending on the arena.

This is one of the biggest patterns we run and the fastest time I have run here is a 17.0 [sadly no video :(] this run was a 17.9 (I no longer run her to the right) the weekend after I ran a 17.2 at this same arena....and on her slow day she ran and 18.0.......none of these are our best and I am still working out some kinks with this mare (I have run her since late 2009....but due to 2 separate injuries I have only really had a year and a half to season her) she will never be the best or the fastest one out there but she has a lot of heart and tries hard for me....I am hoping to hit some 16's this year on her but I will probably only run her for another show season before adding a new horse to the mix.
