I wish I could make the Pink Flamingo Classic here in Idaho (August 4-5), but I have an important family event that Saturday and so decided it would be easier and better for me financially to attend the Paint Idaho Supreme Classic to sell my tack (which Snickers wore the whole time and did excellent in his halter/sidepull combo! Of course, I wouldn't expect anything less, even if we did forget the martingale on the 50 lol). I'm way bummed because it's a fantastic ride in beautiful country and apparently the managers go above and beyond to make it an "event". Oh well, Snickers gets a full 6+weeks off before Old Selam and our back-to-back 50's, 2 of which are just going to be resting to let him rebuild himself.

That sounds like so much fun, good for you and Snickers. I am not nearly there yet, as in a million miles from being able to do this, but I hope someday to catch up! Thanks for the report and pictures, very inspiring!

Good job, Jillybean. Congratulations to you and your horse.

I'm glad to hear that all your work paid off so handsomely.

And nice pictures.

This makes me want to endurance ride! And I hate to trail ride! But maybe I'll like this?
