For those who have read post about my horse on barrels. He's stiff around them. Well for the first time he wasn't, he was very smooth and was pushing off with his hind legs instead of his front. When it came time to run, he went in the ally with no issues and ran just like we did at practice. Reaching the first barrel, (my friends horse had created a hole/or the hole was already there.) It caused my horse to fall face first. According to the people who watched me, said they are amazed he didn't flip since he had so much momentum. Even more amazing I stayed on and we both walked off unharmed. Poles was the next event. I lounged him watched his legs he seemed sound. I still wasn't sure about running him in poles. I did but I wasn't even going to ask anything out of him. We ran a 26. This horse simply surprises me every day, he has saved my life twice. I couldn't have asked for a better horse to come into my life.
That nights pole run.
