Extreme Cowboy Race!

OK, minus the "extreme," "cowboy," and "race" parts. But it was still fun.

This was last Saturday's event at the training/boarding facility down the road. Nice people; nice place. They worked really hard to put this UHCA show together, with no help or guidance from the organization (and therefore no advertising).

Pics didn't turn out too great, so you get to see the pseudo-highlights and the LOL's.

Obstacles included:

Go down wooden stairs

Cross over a tarp on the ground

Go through a tarp tunnel

Go over/through the "deadfall"

Back 20-ish feet uphill

Go over and across a wooden bridge and down some steep steps

Go over a teeter-totter

Raise a banner by pulling a string with lever in a tree

Cross through streamers and noodles

(love this photo!)

Sidepass in, get a raincoat out of the mailbox, rub it on your horse, replace it, and sidepass out

Go down some rough logs/steps

Rotate a "merry-go-round"/gate

Drag some noisy milk jugs

Carry a flag (and take a dump)

Admittedly, there were only four entries in the open class, but all were good riders on broke horses. I think I was the slowest-moving of the bunch (never breaking a slow jog), but I was also the only one who didn't break the time limit on any of the obstacles (with only one minor and brief refusal on the side-passing part). I won, and recouped a little over half my overpriced entry fee!

But I had fun, and was proud of my horse. Got a lot of nice comments and offers to buy Brandy...

I dunno man, that sounds pretty extreme to me! That's a LOT of pretty funky awesome obstacles to navigate! About the only thing you guys don't have is a ravine of mud!

Wicked pics, I would love to do that, looks like a blast!

That teeter totter would have been the end of me and Hershey. Looks like a fun event. Congrats on the win.

Looks fun. We've been talking about putting up an obstacle course in the back lot.
You just gave me a bunch of ideas.

Looks like lots of fun! Good job! Add a mounted shooting course & some cows to pen and that would be my dream event
