2nd Race of the year!

The 2nd race of the year was GREAT!


Did exhibitions on Scrat and Zoey. Scrat did great! He ran a 18.4! His fastest time in that pen. He is really starting to come around this spring so now I just have to adapt to his style and figure out the buttons now lol!

Zoey...eh she did ok lol. She was a little frazzled and sorta all over the place...and washed out lol.

JJ had a super great run! Ran a 16.8, was 7th in the 1D. I was sorta hesitant on how he was gonna be because he was a little $hit to warm up! Oh my word! He was bucking, trotting then would take a jump, squeal, and try to buck. He was acting like a crazy horse lol! So we stood for a while and waited because the more I warmed him up the spookier and broncy he was getting lol. But he was all business!


Exhibitions went great, Scrat did good ran a 18.9, had rider error on 2nd and 3rd. Which is part of me having to figure out his style a little lol. Yesterday he was more push deeper...and today he was a lot freer so was a little off on my timing.

Zoey did really good! She was way more relaxed (only 2 of us in the warm up arena vs 20 million). She was nice and collected and relaxed during out exhibitions.

And JJ ran a 16.6 today, was 8th in the 1D. He worked really well, I let him roll to first and he did good! Was way more relaxed today while warming up and wasn't such a wild beast lol!

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
