We had our play day after church on Sunday. The events were obstacle course, barrels and the ring race. The obstacle course you had to open and close the gate, back through the panels, drag a log, do 2 jumps while loping in a circle, cross the bridge and go back through the gate. * Notice "Shelby" is going with me!~hubby said she did the whole course with me! LOL *

The ring race~you have a sword stick thing and there are 6 rings you are trying to get on there. I got 5 rings in 20 seconds~can't remember hubby's score~but I do know I bet him! :)

Then we had the barrels~notice how wide I am on the last barrel~well that isn't how we normally run it~I had lost one of the reins~I was fishing for it as we were coming home! LOL! We still got it done in 19 seconds! **That is the great thing about being mounted well~I trust her completely and know what she is going to do!!**

FYI: I will be posting pictures from the Extreme Race and the finals from this weekend as soon as I get them! There were a couple of ladies that took pictures and I am trying to round them up from them. I can't wait to see them myself!

Great Job on the "fishing!" I know what you mean, about trusting your horse! I can't wit to see you either! How fun you "horse operator" you!!

OH!! I know I have seen those BIG TONKA TRUCKS!! Amazing! We watch the "Mega Machines" I think that's what it's called on the Discovery Channel. AWESOME!

That Angel is a pretty awesome mare. She looks like loads of fun to ride-and I hear ya on the trust issue-some of them you just always know will take care of you.

fishing for reins reminds me of a story an outfitter once told of the riders had lost their rein and he heard, "Mr. Mckinney could you please stop..I've lost my steering apparatus." So, now when we loose a rein we all refer to them as our steering apparatus. Can't wait to see pics from the extreme race and hear all the details

Awesome pictures! I love that obstacle course!! That is so neat! What fun!! I would love to do something like that.
I think I wouldn't mind going fast if I had a horse I trusted that well. Well, I do have a horse that I trust that well, my kids ride her :). What a fun day!!!!

WOW.. looks like this was super fun. I wish we had more events close by here where I live. We do have events,just not enough. Of course trying to get Daddy/Not a Cowboy to want to attend is hard, he works 10 hour days and just wants to lay around on the weekends.
