Wellllll, my show season is all year round I have been to 4 shows so far with my new gelding. The first one was an epic fail (the saddle was a HUGE issue...) lol Our second, third, and fourth races were all in the same arena. Our second time was an 18.5, our third was an 18.0, and our fourth was a 17.2! We were right under 2 seconds slower than WPRA women!!! (Brittany Pozzi, Jymmy Kay Cox, Kay Blandford, and Sydni Blanchard were there! )
I went to a 3 day show over the weekend, hit alot of barrels :)
My times were consistent though, yesterdays Open run I ran a 16.7 with a clean run, today I ran a 17.2 with getting a bit wide on the 3rd barrel. Yesterdays clean run was inbetween the 3D and 4D, todays run was just a bit to slow for 4D. 15.0 won it. It wasjust a big show, 312 ran Opena yesterday. This was my geldings 5th show, so as long as I can keep him off the barrels I'm happy where he's at. No pics or videos, don't have them yet, ordered a picture though.
So I had a race this weekend! Went alright but I am not going to complain lol my horses did good.
On Saturday it was a double header I just did exhibitions on Polly who did great! And the first run on JJ was not pretty. We decided to put his big bit on as my back is out and any pulling hurts like heck (chiro today lol!), well that didn't go as planed. He flipped me the hoof on the first barrel and almost came to a complete stop then threw a fit and tossed his head...ran a 17.9 and wasn't to impressed with his tantrum lol.
Scrat had a good little go through but he kinda cut off the turn on the backside and he barely caught it with his hip, would have ran a 20.4 (faster then last run in this arena) and did everything I asked just a little bobble.
Then the 2nd run on JJ was MUCH better, we put him back in his S.S Cervi and he rated down beautifully on the first barrel and inhaled it (that is our trouble barrel, hard getting him to rate down at times) and had amazing 2nd and 3rd barrels as usual. We ran a 16.5, was 6th in the Open 1D but was one out of the money lol which I wasn't to upset about.
On the 2nd day I only ran JJ and he was working good but I had rider errors all over the place lol, hit the 2nd and ran a 16.6 but would have been probably a 3 or 4 if I wouldn't of had my head up my but lol.
I have a couple pics and videos! I also have videos of our friends daughter who ran her new horse again this weekend...so will post those to.
