Extreme Cowboy Challenge

Anyone here like to compete in trail riding competions or extreme cowboy races? It is a great and fun way to compete for almost any horse or rider :)

I would like to. It looks awesome. We've done judged trail rides but it's not timed like those

I've seen them before & they do look awesome. I've played around a bit with Chinga and them.

But I'd really like to do them 'competitively' for something fun to do when we're not competing in our normal events.

They are a blast. It really tests the relationship between a horse and rider.

I would like to. I've been through some of the courses but never actually competed. I've done some endurance races if that counts? XD

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I do trail for shows, but not timed. I think it would be SO much fun! The extreme cowboy race was at our expo this year, and I swore if they did it again I would try it! But unfortunately no expo this year :(

I'm thinking of getting more involved in competitive trail rides this year, they look like a blast!

Take a ride across the badlands
Feel that freedom on your face - Breathe in all that open space
You'll understand why God made -Those fly over states

I so want to try it! I'm fairly certain though that my horse would not drag anything, that's way to much work in his opinion.

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong

And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse

They are great But you would be suprised what they will do, might be scary at first to drag something but they learn quickly. I started Dodge off by dragging a tire.
