Well not that far back actually- it just felt like a long time- it was really only August. I just now found out how I did in that last show!
I didn't place that last day at all!
It was a tough judge...even my friend Karen , whose horse is broke to death- placed 9th- and she only tic'd one pole!
BUT the good news is.... Karen ( This is her and Shirley at left)place 2n'd overall for that class! She won a great Buckle! (Remember Karen has only been showing two years!) I'm super proud of her! In that same class I placed 15th ( out of 30 riders) Well I console myself knowing that I placed in the upper half.
In the Other class- the Novice -Karen tied for 2nd Place, and I placed 6th. My goal had been to place in the top 5- and I almost made it. (Missed it by THAT much!)
So now it is time to pull my big girl bloomers up, strap on my spurs and practice practice PRACTICE for next year.
