well good and bad
Speed barrels- he did great!! Sat and turned awsome and was under control the entire time we got a 13 something
keyhole-again amazing he sat and turned (although I did trot him in as he was getting a bit goofy hah) and thought we clipped it but made him run anyways weel we ended up with a 12.8 I believ :]
Big T-well he got goofy here he got through the poles good but tried to run through me at the first barrel got him to come back then he ignored my aids till the last minute and barely missed the second barrel then coming back throught the poles he again decided to try and get away from me and barely dodged the last pole I believe we got a 23 on that
poles-whoo baad run had a nice canter coming up he turned the last pole fairly nice but then bolted weaved one pole then tried to run straight brought him back and made him trot down the poles then we got a nice steady canter going back up them and ended with a 32 -_- he is usually amazing in that event.
Speed ball- this event he absolutely fell apart. I asked him for a slow canter up there but when I asked him to slow down he decided NO BREAKS!! and tried to run through me again well hello one rein stop. Then when I asked him to go up to the cone he started spazzing well I finally got him up to the cone the ball in nd then his jerk butt side steps and runs over the cone -_- DQ'ed
Quadrangle-I can't remember my time here but I think I was like a 24...maybe he hesitated heavily on stopping at the first pole was slightly better at the second and 3 and fourth he was stopping fully haha so better
Barrels-well as usual his first barrel was well mediocrehe came into it great but previous bad training makes him rush and bolt out of it which causes him to bow out (been working on it so it wasn't as bad) his second breaks were there and he came around it pretty good had a little bobble then the third (the ground was funny so I made him slow waay down) but he turned it GREAT and even with out little issues lost quite a bit with the first barrel but he came in on a 27.

However theday ended on a scary note. One of the girls I ride with rides outlaws sister powder and shes a bit goofy at night (it was dark during barrels so the arena lights were on) well she spooked at the shadows and went up the girl pulled back and over they went. Powder got up but was weaving and wobbling and definitely hurting the girl got up said she was fine and so while powder was getting checked they checked over the girl. Powder is definitely going to be out but they said she should be fine .. crossing our fingers for the best.
