So we had a great day in Taber! Rana took Doc to get a run on him before Rapid City. The set up is similar to Rapid City in that it's a smaller pen and you come in from the left side to the alley and then run. He hadn't made any runs prior to Denver since the CFR and it will help him to get in the swing of things! He won it. I just can't get over how solid he has become. Fun to watch.
Pickard did fabulous. I felt that I rode him much better and it helped. He was very responsive, almost to much, we got the third on the way out. He came right back as soon as I asked and we snagged it. I didn't take a second run on him. He had done everything that I had asked and he needs the confidence!
Hitch clocked pretty good. He's just not exactly putting out inbetween his barrels and it's costing him. His little brother Diesel was awesome. He won 3rd in the 2D...thanks Doc :wink:. We ran a 14.9.
Henry didn't do too bad. He isn't used to running on a smaller pattern and thinks he has a few more steps to line out for the next turn. He was a 15.2 with tons of room to improve. I was impressed with the amount of scoot he showed.
Another tidbit, Lynette Brodoway was 3rd in the 1D. She was riding Caught Me Streakin. A mare out of a Kiddin N Streakin daughter. Nice job!
I also had an update on Micky. Tosha Seitz won the junior's in Maiden Creek. Her time was 2nd fastest overall! Pretty proud of her and the way she has stepped up to ride Micky. It was not that long ago and she was worried to go fast and now she can't get fast enough...keeps beating her mama. Sorry Joleen, I couldn't resist.
Have a great day!
