yup, Cruize - He is scary big! I don't really remember individuals - All your horses looked similar! I know Bridget though.

I can ride my stockhorse - But I don't like pushing him too fast because he is my show horse and i'm really picky - He has to be listening all the time lol. So I might ride my friends little appy - The crazy little appy that was in our team at Polox. He is crazy fast but not the best brakes, lol.

Yep, we'll be against each other :]

Run up, band back, bend up, run back... And I read this and realized that 12sec doesn't sound right at all. o.o Oops. Maybe that was my plug time or something.. Not real sure what my running time is right now (I have this list of my times going in a notebook, but I can't find it right now) but it's not even qualifying for 6th at the local shows, much less state. XD Sorry for the confusion.

Whoaa where are you guys from? We dont run those kind of gymkhana type games are here - or at least not that I know of. I have seen some of the stuff before though. It looks super fun! Definitely something new to try.
RubaiyateBandit - ya a 12 on an what I know of as a standard pattern (run there, weave, weave back, run back) is practically impossible haha i have seen someone run a high 18 before. I was crazyy. I was so jealous haha I only run mid 22's in high school rodeo

dumb question - how do you guys get your pics on the side and signatures and crap lol

It's amazing to ride!
I believe we call that Western Bend, when you race up and back. But I'm not entirly sure. I love bending, Chinga rocks at it.

Sir Success. Eventer.
