Billy is a pretty good horseman and always rides finished horses and knows how to buy a well trained horse.
As a result he cuts a fine picture as he enters any arena and his friend is quite impressed with Billy skill as a horseman.
The friend thinks that he has made a good choice in asking Billy to help him with his 31/2 year old gelding at the first show of the season.
Even though this is his first horse he makes sure to ask lots of questions and surround himself with quality help.
The horse sports a new(perfect fitting)saddle and is fat from an easy spring filled with sweet feed and oats.
The gelding had a good 30 day start last year by a top named trainer that is highly thought of in his new circle of horse friends.
Billy is anxious to show his friend that he is up to the job of getting the horse ready for the first rides of the season.
Billy knows that he has to finish what he starts and has to end on a good note and all will be well.
The mid morning sun sparkles off the spurs and they give a little jingle as Billy mounts up and he has been careful to finish off the tack with his favorite curb bit that works so well on his horse and has solved so many problems.
The young horse moves out briskly into a forward trot on the rail of the working pen and a small crowd gathers to witness the skill of the horseman and his green colt.
Billy is anxious to do a good job and get the gelding through the high head set problems and to get him lopping with more of a sweat then his friend has been able to do.
Billy woke up in the hospital room surround by family and his close friend and there to lend comfort in a time of need.
His friend was sure to tell billy that he had set the record for altitude gained at that arena off a bucking horse.
He was sure to include that everyone helped to end everything on a good note after they gathered up all the tack by walking the horse out around the show grounds after the life flight helicopter left.
