The last weekend in March, LT packed tools for the Back Country Horsemen.
The first weekend in April, she went to Lubbock, TX to compete in her (and also my) first ever National Reined Cow Horse event put on by the Panhandle Reined Cow Horse Association.
I have been wanting to compete in reined cow horse for a while, but have been waiting for my girls to get to a point where I felt we could get around a pattern and work a cow.
I was not quite sure we were up for the challenge yet this year, but at some point, well, Just Do It.
Anytime I compete,
I really want to win there is a chance to win learn, so I did my best to focus on winning the “educational opportunity”. (That change in focus actually did take off a lot of the pressure!)
