Rebel's First Gymkhana!

Yes! Fianlly we get to show what we can do!

I hardly ever Gymkhana on anyone except for Jester or Rico, so this is going to be a major change. It's on Sunday, the 13th and three days after school is out. We're in the middle of moving right now so it'll be tricky, but I'm going to take a friend (Brittney) with me and Mom is just going to haul the trailer down for me and leave it there while her and Dad keep moving the stuff. I just need Britt there 'cause I need someone to dial 911 if I go head first into the barrel

He's enver been in this arena before, and sicne sign-ups are at 7:30 I'm going to get there at 7:00 to warm up and take him around before everyone gets there. I want to take him in a few circles around the ring and make sure there isn't some scary thing in there that he's going to spook over.

There's six events, in this order :

Texas Barrels
Speed Barrels
Pole Bending
Figure 8
Flag Race

The flag race is going to trip me up though. I have NO hand-eye coordination whatsoever, lol

Anyway, wish me and my new boy luck. I know he runs....I know he turns....I just don't know if he does it at the same time ^^

The flag race has two barrels at either ends of the arena with a red flag and a blue flag. You run to the barrel closest to the gate and grab the blue flag, then run to the other end and drop it in the other barrel....but you have to grab the red flag out at the same time and then run it down to the other barrel. My problem - I reach over to grab the flag, but I'm never close enough to actually reach it! Hehe

Ah ok. I have a really good technique for the switching of flags - We do the same in a race called ben bar aft, but it is a bit hard to explain over the comp.

Good luck!

I'll definitely get lots of pictures! Hopefully he'll be a good boy and behave for me :)
