Extreme Cowboy club - what fun!

Have just come home from our first club day of Australian Extreme Cowboys(well, Cowgirls, this particular club). Seems like it's our kind of horse sport!

As it's a recent 'blow in' from USA, I'm banking most of you mob from over there have at least heard of it. It's focused more towards fun - for the horse too, even at competition level, than most horsey competition sports I've experienced. Bit like the Mountain Trail Horse or Working Equitation obstacle stuff, but (at competition level) it's a speed event.

Sounds like a whole lot of fun! I'd love to be part of a club like that someday

Hold on to what makes you happy! If it tries to buck you off, just hold on even tighter!

No, bit too busy Tiny, and my fone went flat as I arrived there, so not even any pics. But one of the members was sans-horse today & getting around with a(really nice looking SLR) camera, taking pics of us all, so hope she's putting up the pics to share.

Hey, there were even a few clicker trainers there, which is a novelty for me to find others (aside from here) who even know what that is!

Next month they're not having a regular club meet, because they have a comp on, and the judge is coming over from America - I've heard of Craig Cameron & think he is the one who 'invented' the 'discipline' - his son is coming over to judge. We're not competing but will go watch, so should get a few pics of others at least.
