Ravishing Beau, 1998 APHA gelding, 16.1 hands.
Currently going to be going through "rehab" for a locking stifle.
Once I finally graduate from grad school in May, anyway.
One of our first "competitive" runs, asking for speed. Age 4 (Yes, it was mighty cold outside. Hence the parka! And please excuse the tennis shoes
Leather was too cold for my feet!)
Last summer at a jackpot.
Couple years ago at a family rodeo. Took 4th place out of about 20 adult riders. Took 5th place high-point individual that day. At an earlier show that year, we won the high-point (along with a 3rd place in barrels, 2nd place in keyhole, and 1st place in sack race) and a trophy buckle.
Pole bending a few years ago. Knocked a bunch down (what else is new?)
Jackpot barrel race with about 60 riders. Ran in the upper 2D that day.
Still learning the ropes, as a 5 year old. I believe we placed but I can't remember what!
Look mom! No hands!! (Errr, no saddle.
) 4th place ride in the adult bareback dollar race, out of about 17 riders.
