I'm so stoked I just got the word today that I can haul with a friend of mine, my mom's boyfriend is paying gas as a graduation present. Just sent my entry in today, talk about last minute but it'll make it!
Splitting costs between four people, in a truck for 8 hours together...Woohoo!
I just sent off my belt headstall for a new "touch up" from my friend who does custom leather, and bought her some new boots and reins with the rest of my graduation money. It's amazing how fast that can get sucked up when you want your pony to look her best!
This is the farthest race I will ever haul for. I used to haul with my Mom to the reining shows but I've never hauled anywhere without her, so I'm excited to start off my year running Selena with this race. :)
