Hi! I'm going to optometry school 1600 miles from home so it is few and far between when I get to ride my horse anymore!
I've never gotten to run him in a sanctioned rodeo yet, as I have always kept him with my parents and use their truck and trailer. My mom and I do like to do horse shows, family rodeos, and barrel races. We won the 1D a bunch of times for the first time in the short month and a half I had off this summer, so I was really proud of him for that.
I am curious to see how he'd do an amateur rodeos, although I don't think he's fast enough to win one, there's a chance we might at least place. I'm in North Dakota (or well, my horse is haha) and we have the Roughrider Rodeo Association and the North Dakota Rodeo Association for the amateur rodeos.
One of the first things I am going to do when I finish school is buy one or two barrel-bred prospects that would have the potential to win me a WPRA rodeo! But that's a long-term goal.
Noticed one of your comments on another thread...
Im aiming for WPRA too. College is the priority right now (unfortunately haha...)
So right now Im doing semi pro and small pro organizations.
What associations do you run with?
