Selena at the Jackpot/Gymkhana

Yeah okay so I feel like the devil has personally sent this heat wave from hell because Selena was saddled for not ten minutes even before she totally started sweating and it was so muggy. We hosed her off and kept her under fans and she was fine, plus it was a lot cooler in the arena but good lord. //rantrantrant


I'm not going to post the regular barrel run because she had a really bad slip at the first barrel because we were at the VERY bottom of the ground and she couldn't handle the big ruts from the other horses. It was way reflected in the rest of the run. She was so flustered after that I just let her go nice and easy.

I did four events today, and here's a video of three of them:

Speed Barrels -

She wanted to go wide and veer right after the end barrel. Whatever that was about, she's never done that before...

Sidewinder -

I went in easy. She was pretty confused but she did well anyway.

Biwrangle -

She likes this event. Again we were at the bottom of the ground so I was worried after the first barrel run, so I didn't push her into the turns. She still made a really good run considering my nerves about her falling.

Next weekend on Sunday 15th at brushriders in williams.

Here is the info..I copied and paste
Well, we're gearing up for the next Gymkhana on July 15th! We have a couple changes to tell you about:
1. Sign-ups will open at 7:45am instead of 8:15am so we can get through paperwork sooner and get the event started on time.
2. We will have breakfast foods available this time--doughnuts, muffins, & fruit--to go along with your coffee!
3. Don't forget, you could be the winner of the $100 CASH PRIZE for the fastest barrel time of the day!
4. Order of events will run as follows: Speed Barrels, KeyRace, Texas Barrels, then Poles.
5. We will probably have a lunch break to water the arena down after the KeyRace(?).
6. Don't forget to Trailer-Pool as parking is limited!

See you all there!

Hmmm I don't think I can go...I might tag along if I find someone else who wants to pick me up and I can watch. The lights on my trailer are now fixed BUTTTT the tags on my truck expired. Excellent, right? Lol I swear I might never be able to haul myself anywhere again.

I will see though. If I can get the money I will see about coming up and watching but I don't think I will enter Selena.

Thanks Sky <3 She's really doing well, I can't wait for a few months from now to see how much better she gets.
