Sunday 05/05 was the first time contesting for two of my kids. Corinne and Cece went to the Golden Spur Club Show at Circle T. We didn't get there until late in the day, but it still was a long afternoon. Cece was the first to compete in the ball race. You have to take a ball on horseback to the end of the arena and drop it in a bucket, then get back as fast as possible. Her horse Cody was very uncooperative so we had to halter lead him. Corinne was up next in the Texas Keyhole. She was very nervous but did well for her first time. She also rode Cody. He didn't want to turn for her and she was disqualified, but got the first time jitters out. She is very excited to go back and do it again. Corinne also did the flag race and was also disqualified for missing a barrel, but again, I am very proud of her for her first time.
Danielle our trainer also competed in flags on both Cody and Redman. Much to our surprise Redman did very well. We ended up with a 2nd and 3rd for those two in flags. We plan on competing all summer so I am sure everyone is going to get much better.
