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.
Fun times!!!! Ya that intermediate age group is a tough one. Do you show at Champ show? This years show had well over 100 entries in that age for gaming. Im glad to hear that you arent a parent that freaks out at the kids if they mess something up. I do mostly pleasure and I see it all of the time where parents start hounding on them if they did something wrong. When my mom went with me she was there for me... if I started getting upset about something she would remind me where the truck and trailer were (meaning we will go home). She was excited when I won but supportive if I had a bad ride.

What arena was your recent show at?

I do miss gaming though... not having to worry about a fleck of dirt or if my clothes match or if my horses head was a little too high, lol. Me against the timer not the judges opinion. I hope your girls have good luck in 2009!!!!

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
