Okay so time only's were really fun! On my horse I got better times than I have before except I knocked down the barrel which made me slow down a tiny bit but it's okay it's all for practice. On my moms horse, I got better each run. Although, in the beginning when I was warming him up he ran me into a tree but you better believe I corrected him! The thing I really need to work on with him is getting tighter turns and worry about speed later. I need to be consistent with running barrels though because I won't be as good if I don't. I'm currently looking for a new trainer because the one I had before I just felt like I wasn't really learning so once I find one that I can stick with and I learn from I will be sooo much better. I'm really trying to get good enough so maybe in a year or so I'll be good enough to do jackpots and actually some money and even if I didn't win I wouldn't be all depressed about it because it would be a good experience.
All in all, good day. Oh yeah almost forgot, I have been emailing back in forth with a lady that is selling a Martha Josie Circle Y saddle for $500 that I'm hoping I can pick up before my next gymkhana on Saturday because my horse has high withers and it just extremely difficult to fit. I need the ride saddle/pad combo. I'm hoping my deal works out with this lady.
Tomorrow morning I'm probably going to head down to the arena for an hour or two w/t/c through barrels and really focusing on leg cues and making my pocket to the second barrel which is where I always have trouble.
