Our horse club put on a Cowboy Challenge Saturday. It was postponed from August because of rain. This time the weather was perfect. I asked if they needed help running the event or did they need me to bring horses. The answer was, bring horses. We had added a Jr. Horse category and they wanted to make sure that there would be several entries so that's what we brought.
J rode Brother. This was J's first time showing in anything. He claimed afterward that he wasn't nervous all but I have my doubts. I rode Wangler and I was plenty nervous. He acted the best he's ever done though, not a single whinny the whole day. It pretty much goes without saying that Brother was a dream. The event was judged on horsemanship and style. There was a time limit but time was only used as a tie breaker in the event of a scoring tie. J went before me and his score was 79 1/2. He was the only one that they gave a time warning to but he managed to finish all of the obstacles. E took some videos of him but they are pretty long.
