NBHA Finals was....

AMAZING! I know I am a few days late on posting but I am posting now lol!

So Friday we ran a 16.5 it was a good run but he just didn't feel like he was really firing hard. We placed 3rd in the Youth 1D and 6th in the Open 1D so got some money there.

Now Saturday was the districts Spirit Day so of course I had to get all wild and crazy and that is what I did lol! We were all decked out! So anyway he was calm, cool, and was just chilling out while waiting for my drag (which helped ease my nerves because the more fidgety he gets the more I get nervous). So we make our way into the arena during the drag to let his eyes adjust. While waiting he is good, a little bit chompy but nothing horrible. Well our turn comes around and I am like ok JJ....I am going to give you your head and boy did he make one heck of a run! Ran a 16.161 (our fastest time in that arena)! We won the 1D out of 370+ riders and also won the Youth 1D which cinched the Youth Average for us as well! I was shocked and speechless when I looked at the board! I though oh you know it is probably going to be a .3 but boy was I wrong lol! He ran SO hard and straight between 1st and 2nd just wow. I have rode this horse for 6 years now and NEVER in that time have I EVER felt him power THAT hard in a run. It was such an AMAZING run and he knew he did good lol he was SUCH a animal after the run and was so hyped and jacked lol.

Now Sunday was a decent run...he was pretty hot while we were waiting (I was last out in the drag and shouldn't have went in after they just started the drag). So he had himself pretty worked up by the time our run came. He bounced off the fence on 1st and didn't have the smoothest barrels and ran a 16.4. Was out of the money but it was a clean run so we still were in the average! I was 2nd in the average for a long time but by the end I had been knocked to 5th which was alright with me lol! 5th in the 1D average out of 370+ girls...not to shabby at all!!

So overall it was a GREAT weekend and I had a GREAT time with friends and family. I am so pleased with my guy he worked SO amazing and gave me his all. I came home with over $1400, a Saddle, a breastcollar and headstall, and 2 jackets.

Now for some vids and pics!

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