I was getting a little nervous today that tomorrow's barrel race would be cancelled. The weather isn't really bad it's just that its been sooo nice that it almost seems cold tonight! I called and its a go I'll let you know how it goes. Pick and I had a learning week. He is a challenge and I know it. I am learning lots and still love him. This past weekend didn't go well and after much discussion with OW I am trying to fix me. I have a tendancy to protect my horses from ever making a mistake. I guess they have to make them to learn what and what not to do! Me too! I hope, no wait, I know things will go great tomorrow....
Rana is back home from Denver and was making it back to the short go but knew she'd get bumped out so they left. She had a stumble at the first barrel her first run that cost her. She ran a .6 and the second run was a .4. Wish she wasn't coming with me to Taber. I am glad she's home though. It just isn't the same at the barn without her.
Kareen took off for the weekend to visit with family and friends. I think some roping maybe involved too...she took her "cowboys" as Kassie would say. I think Kareen missed Rana, I am just not that funny?! We did have a good week of riding though. Learning lots and tossing things/ideas back and forth, plus somebody has to keep an eye on Amos.
For everyone in Canada stay warm and everyone who went to the warmth stay dry! Like my friend Holly says "Go win thousands"!
Thought I'd share this, no real reason other than I AM. A friend had it on her facebook. Makes me excited for the olympics!
