Last night was incredible! We had such a great time at
playday, I took my brother along with me this time and
even taught him how to ride on his own for the first time,
he had a little trouble at first withreining, but after
awhile he got everything down and was doing his own thing,
he even practiced around the barrel pattern and speed pattern
while I shouted what to do from the sidelines and he even
learned how to trot, I was amazed...this washis first time
EVER riding without being led around and he was already
friggin' trotting the horseout there...no fear at all!
After he got through with the pattern and trotted over
to me, everyone started clapping, I was soooo proud! The
good thing is he isn't trying to impress me either, he
enjoys doing it which makes me happy, I had to take turns
on my horse all night, LOL!
The kid really has some raw talent and just needs to keep practicing!
Last night was just a practice night only, no paying,
just have to take turns with everyone else...I really
liked that. I did the pole bending course (first time
with Chava), barrel racing course, and speed (her best
event). I even got my ole' hubby out there doing the
speed course, we actually got Chava to canter for the
first time since having her, it was a great feeling! I
even madesome new friends while out there, so I had a
blast!! After finally convincing my brother it was time
to go, we went to the gas station and got Iceys, yum!
