Rosebud or "R" fortunate decision APHA

The smallest horse on the Top Hands, 14;1 but one of the fastest and best rides on the team, if I do say so myself. LOL
She was the best pole horse you could want, I have a picture it's a picture of a picture. But all four feet are off the ground and see how collected, balanced and relaxed she was?
One time I broke a rein right as we started our run, only got second, but no one watching knew about our equipment malfunction.

Yeah, the size of the horse doesn't matter, it's the size of the horses heart!

The second one back on the right hand side...

Personaly, I think the littler the better! My POA mare is retired, but she was my main 4-h gaming mare for three years. She always beat all the full size horses, and she is 13.2hh. She ran a 17.2 in barrels her last year competing, (and while it's not the most fastest time, she was 18 years old) and very few 4-h competitors have beaten that time in our county with their young, and full size horses.

My old pony, 13.2 hh consistent 3D Youth pony at NBHA shows with me at 7-8

My old mare 14.3 hh 2D/3D Youth and Open NBHA horse

My moms old Fe Fe Bug mare who I also ran 1D horse at NBHA shows, she was 14.1 hh. My mom on her

My current barrel horse is only 15 hh at the moment, and my yearling will probably only be 15 hh. Size doesn't matter in the barrel world, heart does.

Mango - I'm so jealous of you right now LOL. I miss riding Drill on my Equestrian Team, I would kill to be able to do it again. It was such a blast! I still take time to watch the drill teams at the meets. It's always so impressive. You should post more drill pictures.

Crimson - I keep forgetting to ask you. Do you do OHSET? If I remember right, don't you live in Oregon? In those pics it looks like you have yourself the OHSET uniform :)

Oh that's interesting....LOL. I've never heard them called anything other than what our association has them as. Must just be a regional thing then.
