I must have missed Brenda! Or had to have been typing my last post..

Hammer looks like he could do well but Carlee doesn't look near as comfortable on him as she does Dillon.

Mary did have a really good run. How tall is Latte? That's a lot of leg!

WOW! CRAZY! She does it again! Mary takes hold of Round 3!

Jethro also fired better tonight! Went from 14.4,14.2, and now a 13.9! So did Martha!

Man this is a EXCITING NFR! Wow 7 more rounds to go!

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

I know!! Tonight was close!! I can't believe that three way tie.. It was an edge of my seat kinda deal.

So excited to see what happens tomorrow night.

I didn't realize that Hammer was only 5.. I don't know if that's a smart decision by Carlee at all.. I hope se brings Dillon back tomorrow night.

I would really be excited if Mary catches up to Brittany for the world title. How awesome would that be??

I believe she ran him at the CFR and he was doing really good....BUT he IS only 5 and still young. And with that much energy in there I can easily see how a horse could get over whelmed easily.

I know I think she can if she keeps up the way she is going.....

Yep, I think she won the third go round and set the arena record at the CFR.. I was expecting big things from her after last year and her year so far.. Sucks she's having such a hard time with it. I creeped her Facebook and a few people are getting pretty harsh on it..

I think Carlee is really just feeling the pressure. She needs to just relax and ride like she's ridden at every other rodeo before, and at this point just get the day money. You could see she pulled up Hammer before she even got past the barrel, she knew. She needs to get back on Dillon now I think.

Brenda did do a lot better and I'm super happy about that, I still think she should get on Dora for a few rounds though and just see.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I'm really excited that Mary Walker has gone 3 for 3 so far! That's incredible. I wonder what the record is for the most rounds won at the NFR? My guess would be that Charmayne and Scampler hold that record.

And I'm feeling bad for Carlee. She's over-thinking things and/or not thinking enough. Her knocked barrels have looked mostly like pilot errors. (Certainly not saying I could do better! I can't even imagine the pressure and intensity inside the Thomas and Mack) I just hope she can pull it together. Her and Dillion are the arena record holders after all.

Charmayne is one of a few that have won all ten rounds.

Mary Walker will not be joining that list tonight with a tipped barrel...

Glad to see Sherry stepping up and reppin' the veterans though. Brenda ran decent tonight but I still would like to see her winning some money. And those studly horses are just ridiculous out there, especially Rascal.

I'm extremely happy with Carlee's run last night and pumped Sherry won the round..

What happened tonight? I'm back in SC and wasn't able to watch it.

I know that the first runner out Kaley Bass ran a 13.68 to win it and it was a pretty nice run!
