Took Squiggy to a rodeo yesterday

And didn't enter! I was roping with Peanut, and decided to take Squiggy along for the ride. Before the roping slack, they had the barrels set up, so I quickly got on Squiggy and trotted her on the pattern a couple times, loped around a bit, and then rode around the rodeo grounds letting her see everything... like the Tarps of Death, Awnings of Terror, and the Screaming Demon Children. LOL... she handled it well. Just did a lot of stopping suddenly to look at something and whinny. We even hung out in the Open barrels line up and watched some horses spazz. She got a little excited with all of the horses running around, but she eventually stood calmly.

We went on a few bareback rides throughout the day too, no problems with that. In fact, we got lunch bareback :P

And, when I wasn't there, my dad met some people that train and race CCA (pro-ish rodeo) and somehow got them to take a look at my girl. They apparently really liked her, and when I met them and talked about how I'm going about training her, they said I was doing perfect and that next year I should go to some SBRA jackpots with her and just go at whatever pace because they are really inexpensive to enter.

After the rodeo, we went straight to a roping jackpot, (which I got 2nd in.) and after I was done roping and everyone was out of the arena, I worked Squiggy in the arena, just trotted around, did some bending, loped some nice circles, and even did a couple lead changes.

IM SO EXCITED.

Sounds like a good training day w/no mishaps. Nice also to have someone else confirm that you are doing things right, isn't it?

I was pretty proud I would have liked a picture to show you... but my mom doesn't care about taking pictures of me.

Barrel, iM not sure how much help I can give you... I'm teaching myself all of the tricks and figuring out what works best for just squiggy... I don't quite have the experience starting horses on the pattern to hand out advice. Maybe in a couple years I will feel like I have the right, not not yet.
