    Farrier came today put Dos's shoe back on (yay)

    Tomorrows plans:
    Go to the local arena around 5-ish to practice my form and technique for running barrels. Need as much practice I as I can get before Saturday. Then if not tomorrow, sometime this week, going to meet with a new trainer and take a lesson to see if this trainer would be a good match for me.

    Hope everything turns out ay-okay.

    My goal this next gymkhana is to get my fastest times ever. Hopefully I do

    Thank you! I sure hope I can beat my own times. I realized that winning isn't the most important thing unless you know how to ride right so that's what I'm going to do make sure I ride right. Also I like beating my old times. I keep records and videos of each one of my runs to see what I can improve on and how

    So..haven't updated in a while.

    8/9/2011: Went to the arena close to where I live to practice running arrels and my turns went really good stayed for a couple hours.

    8/10/2011: Went school clothes shopping so didn't ride but did talk to a lady via email and phone about a possible pony we are going to purchase.

    Today: Went and looked at the pony we talked to the lady about yesterday. He is soooooo cute and had good confo, was really suitable for my nine year old sister
    The only bad thing is that he cribs so he has to wear a cribbing collar but the lady the more attention we give him the less he'll do and that makes sense.

    Tonight: Around 6:30ish going to the arena to do some time onlys/time trials to do some practicing for cheap.
    The lady we're going to but the pony from is trailering down to the arena by us so she can see my sister ride him in the time onlys and then we will pay for him and take him home!

    Tomorrow: going to go riding for a few hours with some friends to get ready for gymkhana on Saturday

    Saturday: Gymkhana!!! It's a night show so I have to wash Dos Equis, and then going to leave him standing tied up until we leave so he doesn't go roll because he loves to get dirty right after I clean him (I think he does it just to make me mad)
    Going to be a good day I know it!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Side note:
    Back to school on Thursday the 18th summer went by way too fast!!
    But I get my schedule on the 16th. Hopefully I get good not mean teachers that will actually put up with me but maybe not hahaha

    Thursday at time only's I was running to the second barrel and I heard a loud sound, looked down, to see the the bridle was around my horses neck :O
    I had no control at all and he was just running around the arena but he finally stopped and everything was okay
        08-14-2011, 12:11 AM
    Ohh snap :P im glad everything was okay! Where do you stand in racing right now? I don't really understand the whole 1D 2D things!! I know yikes right?
        08-14-2011, 05:37 PM
    Okay here the divisions are as follows:
    • 1D 18.999
    • 2D 19.799
    • 3D 20.799
    • 4D 21.999
    • 5D 23.999
    • 6D 25.999
    • 7D I don't know the time range for this division.

    The time increments are by seconds so this is for the cloverleaf pattern or texas barrels (same thing) there are a few different names for this pattern.

    There are 3 other barrel patterns that we run and all those times average to get the division you are in.
    Since this is the most common pattern, and the one ran by the pros, it's the one I'm showing times for.

    Right now I'm 3D but running 2D times as of my last show.
    If I run 2D times on three of the four main patterns in the next show, I will be placed in 2D.
