Well it all fell apart yesterday in the Reining yesterday. It was going good in the warm up pen but she did not get her lead changes - either one - and got slightly dinged on everything else. She got a score bit it was only 180, so no hope if finals with that.

Matt was pretty disappointed with it, but I am OK with it. She’s a baby at a huge show and is being trained differently from some of the others. And she’s tired. Reining is her worst event but expected her ti do a little better than this.

After that class we took her to a spa treatment & later Matt rubbed her down with liniment & took her for a theraplate treatment.

Today is fence work - her favorite event. The cow should liven her up & she should do well.

Matt will take her home tomorrow. She’ll get some time off & we’ll work towards the Stallion Stakes in March.

Disappointing reining score, but not horrible for a young horse not being pushed. I hope you get a good cow draw!

Scarlett’s Snaffle Bit experience is over. She & Matt put in a great run on a bad cow (it wasn’t just my opinion) but they only scored a 198.5 - not enough to put them in the $$. Lots of people said they should have gotten a new cow, but that’s the breaks.

All in all I am very happy with the experience & exposure Scarlett has gotten this week & know she will only improve in the future. I am also thankful she is sane & sound after this hard week.

And I’m so thrilled with how Matt has trained her - no “trucks of the trade”.

Next up is the double CCHA show in November. 👍👍

Matt & Scarlett ended up 15th in Level one. Travis Mankins won Level 1 - his 2nd consecutive win - AND qualified for all open divisions finals - he’s on a great horse but competition will be TOUGH. Hoping to be there to see it all!

Good luck to Travis! I’m sorry that Scarlett didn’t come through, but what a cool thing to be able to forever say she competed.
