We went to our first fun show yesterday. Aside from Seth saying "I wanna ride a horse" and "My TURN!" the whole day, it was pretty fun! I had never been to one of those, and was taken back a bit by the speed at which some of those games were run! HOLY COW! And to think I just started walking the barrel pattern. lol.
Anyway, no one we knew competed, we just went to watch. After some whining on Seth's part, one of the instructors from my barn let him sit on one of her horses. He's such a little cowboy.
Seth and Maria (one of the instructors) and Maria's horse Bubba:
Poor Nora wanted some taffy SO bad. She wouldn't leave Seth alone. lol She kept nuzzling him with her nose, just trying to get a bite.
We had a great time, it was really neat to see everyone run their horses. There was one horse that was refusing a barrel, and ended up side swiping the side of the fence where we were standing. That was pretty scary, I even yanked Seth off the fence and backed away. There were a couple of horses that actually broke their leads pulling away when the horse made contact with the fence.
