Just curious, what is Arena race with twist?

I also attend all the local Gymkhana shows, SO FUN! But I have never heard of that?

Congrats on the placings. Me and my mare also place very well. We get Reserved Champion almost every time.

Ohh I see. I see.

Here at our shows we just have Key hole, 3D barrels(regular 'triangle' barrels), Speed barrels, Egg and spoon, Sit a buck, usually a 'mystery' class where you dont know what the event is until the day of the show, Pole bending. There is more, I just cant think for crap right now.

Oooo! That would be fun using cows. even though my horse would be like @#$% this! haha
And MOST of the people here are nice as well. Some are just in it to win it. However, I do LOVE winning, but i am not in it for the fame like they are. More so just to have fun.

yeah. The first time i went ot that show we did a thing called cow dabbing; you had a stick with a glove with powder on the glove, and when you passed a certain point they would call a number of a cow(there were like 8 cows) And i got number two, that cow would not let me dab it, i didnt even have to steer rowdy he just followed it!! so the time ran out, and i didnt get the cow!
Second time i went We did this thin called cow chase. we had to get the number of a cow that the people callled and take it around the barrel and back all on your horse. that is why it was called cow chase cuz we had to chase the cow around the barrel on our horse it was so much fun.
