State Drill Team Comp. [Lots of Pictures]

So here are some pictures from last weekends state drill team competition in Dillon. Our team has only been together for about 3 months so we did pretty good against some of the more experienced teams. We got 3rd overall, 3rd in Impromptu Drill, 4th in Quadrille, and 3rd in Freestyle Drill. I was completely overheated and hating my life since we rode around 2pm, but otherwise it was fun! These are also the photos that sparked my diet! Horses count as exercise...right?

Great shots! It does look hot though. You all look so nice in the white shirts and black hats. Then the red white and blue theme, very nice.
I think you look great. Everyone's thighs look bigger on a horse. My thunder thighs look like oversized county hams

I want to drill team very badly, but I can't find anybody to ride with me :(

Love that paint horse!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Bahaha. As do mine. I suppose I will use the saddle as an excuse :P

It was extremely hot out. Thankfully, most drill takes place late at night at rodeos. By the end of the drill I wanted to quit lol. Thankfully, our freestyle was at 9 in the morning and made me realize it's fun when it's not a billion degrees out.

There's actually quite a few drill teams around here. It's a lot of fun.

To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.

I'm about 3 hours from you, Nita. That's the arena in Dillon. It's...oddly shaped and horrible for drill haha
I just joined the drill team a few months ago but you may have seen me around at barrel races if you were ever in this area.
