PLAY DAY AWARDS FOR 2008

We had our Play Day Awards luncheon and presentation yesterday after church. Well as you can see I won the buckle for my age group. Let me just say I am so excited! One of the reasons is, as hubby pointed I should probably tell you all about, is I really just started riding about 4 years ago. I rode alittle before I had little cowgirl, warming up and cooling off hubby's roping horse, but that was about it. I had the desire then, but then we had little cowgirl and my main job was being her mom! *best job ever, by the way* But, when she was old enough I set out on my desire to improve my riding. This is my second year to do the play days and they were so great for me and Angel. They helped me build my confidence and improved my riding. She is such a awesome horse, I'm truly blessed! Me and her are at that point where we are one, it is just a awesome feeling. We have won many things together, but this is the first buckle! This year on her I'm focusing on my team roping and rodeos. Savannah has decided she would like to ride Angel this year in the play days, so I'm excited about that. I'm going to haul Willis this year to the play days for training. I would like to say a huge thank you to Mike & Ginger for doing such a great job on the play days! Every month they come up with great events to have. And to my dear hubby for buying such a awesome horse for me! I'm looking forward to another year of play days with Willis.
I tried to get a close up of the buckle, but it keep reflecting the flash back! This is the best one! And yes I put it on my belt as soon as I got it! :)

Congrats on the belt buckle. that's really cool and I guess I didn't know you'd only been riding for 4 years, that makes it even cooler. You go, Girl!

What a beautiful buckle; Good for you! Don't you love it when you have a horse that seems to just be an extension of you; I had that connection with Coyote Belle's mother. It was very sad when she died.
