good luck PintoTess!
Pumkinzmybaby- that's exciting, I love giving lessons :) I'd like to do it when I'm older but so far, I don't think people would trust a teen with their kids on big animals haha
AAH gymkhana next weekend!!! The first one of the year! Yaay!!! I'm so excited, I'm actually going to run this time, the last three gymkhanas have been terrible: First one, it was my first so of course I was just trying to figure stuff out and I got disqualified for three events because I didn't know what I was doing haha. Second: On my second run I was catapaulted into a giant metal fence. Of course I wouldn't run after that, for one I was scared, for another I HURT like heck!! I got on obviously but it was mostly walk trot sometimes canter for the rest of the events. Third one, I was still scared from falling the last time so I just trot cantered the events and slow galloped back. Fourth shouldn't even count as a gymkhana, it was for halloween and it was basically just fun games with teams and stuff. The games were abnormal and I had no idea what to do in most of them so I cantered those haha
But I'm not scared this time so I'm gonna run!! I'm so excited! I'm not expecting to do too good though because I have some TOUGH competition! This one girl just won BC Heritage Finals then her horse died and now she has Cheyenne's owner's best barrel horse who had also just won many events in BC Heritage....I don't stand a chance on them, but at the fun gymkhana (it shouldn't be even counted for a gymkhana as it was just little games) there were a LOT of new kids. But they might be going in Novice division for now...SIGH, I'm planning on practicing today, hopefully it doesn't start raining and the arena's semi dry. Wish me luck! I haven't slept in the last week thinking about it, I'm so excited!
