Did first gymkhana today! Snickers won two fifth place ribbons and one second place ribbon. Proud of her. She was a pill at times, but it WAS her first event like this. The very first class was the obstacle course.....No problem, right???? WRONG! Can you believe she wouldn't walk over a tarp that was boxed in with four logs? She did some rodeo horse before we just passed that part by. She has walked over tarps and even had them wrap around her legs before! Crazy horse. We did not even place....lol.
Then, she was standing around with charros on their horses for four hours....they can get pretty insane at times and all of those speed event horses. One horse even had a thick chain for a martingale/tie down....oy.
But, good experience for her and me. I even loped her through some of the classes to win those ribbons.
