Yes my girls do WSCA. My older daughters horse is in his late 20s. He runs good for her but just a hair to slow. She a intermediate so it tough age group. If they placed to 10th at the shows she would have ribbons.
We got her a new horse this year (Leo) he does not know the games yet but she understands that she has to work with him. My younger daughter does barrel jackpots. This year she won 2 jackets ( from one location) and a belt bucket for a different series. This last weekend she did get to do speed and action. I thought for sure her horse would not stop in the box but she did and got 1st place.
When ever we go to show I don't push them to win I just ask for a clean run I don't care about the times. Ribbons are a bonus.
