I have to brag a little bit... ;)
I'm super proud of my boy! We have raced a total of four times now. Our first race was an epic fail :shock: , our second, third, and fourth races were all at the same arena. Our times went from an 18.5 to an 18.0, and then finally, to a 17.2 with room for improvement!! :D :D Every single time I watch the video, I cringe. I was definitely NOT riding to the best of my ability! :? It makes me frustrated... but, hey! We were improving A TON! I'm ready for the next race!! :D :D
Yay!! Way to go :D
Thats great to hear! keep up the work!
Congratulations on your success! I am starting training a couple of my horses to barrel race, but we still trot/canter the pattern because we're not good enough to gallop yet. :P You must have so much fun barrel racing with a horse that good!
A 17.2 would have been good enough to win the last 3 barrel events i have seen, with about .4 secs to spare.
If you and your horse have room to improve more, i suspect that you have a possible champion on your hands.
But, what do I know....lol
Woohoo! Way to go! I can't wait to start chasing cans!
Thanks!! :D this just made my day!! :DI was also racing against Brittany Pozzi and Kay Blandford.. There were others too, but let's not get into that :wink: Brittany ran a 15.4? the first day. The second day (I cant remember who won) ran a 15.3, so i was just out of the money. But, i still think my horse did amazing!! Good luck on the pattern Sis and hel!! :D
Congrats that's great improvement! I have my first barrel race tomorrow with my new horse and first one in 2 years for me! I hope I can improve as much as you did!
That's great! Congradulations!
That's so awesome!
I know how that feels. People have used my horse in high school rodeos before before I got him. They all said he's a pain in the butt and not slow. Well. Our times have only improved every rodeo. I'm working towards that 16. [:
