Well I went to the NW5D finals this weekend....didn't have the best of runs....BUT I did get these in the Average
I was VERY happy! He is out in his neck somewhere and ran super stiff to the right (first barrel) and just wasn't wanting to work it so we lost a lot of time there and wasn't running in our normal D. But I could careless what D I was running it really as long as my horse tried his best to work. And it broke my heart after every run because he KNEW he messed up and just walked out and back to the trailer...and he usually is an dork and puffs up like he is the king of the world.
Didn't win money.....but the times tallied up to place 1st in one of the Ds! My mom was BAWLING lol. JJ has now won 3 buckles and now his first 2 saddles in one weekend. Love my big guy!
And I also would have won the target race with the first two runs (they do the first two run and whoever runs the most consistant times win $400. I ran a 15.502 the first run and a 15.501 the second run *bangs head* lol so if I would have paid the $10 I would have $400 lol!
Here are a few more pics from the weekend (don't really want to post the videos lol but any of you really REALLY REALLY want to see them maybe I might but I doubt that.)
Riding JJ and Ponying Scrat Friday (got there thursday, went to ocean Friday)
JJ in his BOT Sheet, and my Polos turned to Cold Water Wraps since I somehow left one of my CWR at home....so had to improvise. This was after our run and really didn't want to use more water then I had to letting it run on his legs for 20 minutes (never do it there since all the water runs off her well). Left them on for 20-30 minutes after every run. Also sprayed him down with Sprayed him down with Sore No More before putting his BOT on.
In is BOT Sheet AND boots after is CWR, left those on from the time I was done with the CWR till about 1 hour before we went to bed when I wrapped his legs with NBs and rubbed him down with SNM
JJ in his BOT and NBs w/Standing wraps for the night.
Then Scrat didn't think that his hay was good enough so helped himself to JJs.....until JJ had enough of that lol.
Then I rode Scrat and helped our friends daughter in the Arena since her horse wanted to be a stinker (before it was her run walking to stand)
The Boys ready to head home!
JJ glad to be home :)
So I had a pretty great weekend really :) One of my favorite races to attend!
