Wow that's awesome everyone!! Harleywood, that's so cool that you guys did so well since your horse hadn't been under saddle very long!!
I won the horsemanship class at fair last year. Over quite a few respectable riders, too! (beat my trainer's kid...
) Got a ribbon, trophy, and money! Hopefully I can do just as well this year, since it's my first year doing sr. Horsemanship! (I'll be with the big girls
The same day, we got 2nd in barrels and 3rd in poles. And we'd only run the barrel pattern twice before, and we'd never run the pole pattern until the warmup ring right before the class! We ran a little over 1 second off the leader in barrels and we beat some barrel racers that rodeo every weekend.. Then in poles we were 2.5 seconds off the winner! Pretty proud of my little horse ;)
One time I won a jr. Western pleasure class once at a regional show 2 seasons ago with my trainer's horse! Even though it may not count since it's not my own horse ;). I won a buckle, a saddle cross, and a feed bucket full of candy, stable stuff, and horse treats!! (the candy was the best part!
