I took my Paso Fino mare into our first pole bending race and barrel race last weekend. This was our first time actually running the courses. In pole bending we got a 38 sec (3rd place out of 4), and barrel racing we got a 33 sec (4th out of 4 by 1 sec). I know we can do better with practice, especially in barrel racing as I held her back. But are these decent times for our first race (btw it was a fun show)?
