Wow. I expected to at least find a few threads here... My town has an annual rodeo that's coming up in a couple weeks. I love to attend, mostly because I love watching the horses. The competitors aren't professionals or anything... Ordinary cowboys and cowgirls who take a weekend for a fun event. I actually know a few of them. :) If it tells you anything about how small it is, one year my friend got permission to team rope with her draft horses just for fun. One of them had only been ridden once, and between the two riders, they only had one rope. It got a laugh from the audience though!
I am a rodeo girl!!! I love attending, watching, and riding in them! There are a few around here in NY where I live. I go to all of them! =) They are professional rodeos so its really 'action packed' lol
I ride western but I'm not an expert so I mostly keep my mouth shut. I'd rather stay quiet than say something dumb and be corrected or confuse someone. I have asked a friend a few questions about stuff I read. She knows TONS about everything horse related. :) Posted via Mobile Device
I've ridden in numerous gymkhanas, and I plan to train Jynx for barrel racing.
Awesome! Once my stud gets the snip I'm going to start him in barrels. :)
I may just ride him at playdays when I go with the kids because its more fun & laid back. I get aggrivated when those floppy riders kick kick kicking their horses no matter how fast their going. Ah well :roll:
