Yesterday a friend & I competed in a Cowboy Challenge.
It is a timed race taking your horse through various obstacles.
This was a first for Rocky & me and we competed in the pairs competition.
First, the two riders hold a crepe paper tape between them and trot around the arena.
Whew! Made it without breaking!
Another obstacle was sidepassing your horse over a log.
Weaving between barrels
Walking over tires
Going through a noodle curtain.
Going through water
Next one rider opened a rope gate and the second rode into the box in the pen
and spun the horse 360°.
Here Rocky & I are just finished and leaving the box.
Controlled riding up a hill
Back down the hill between fluttering (spooky) tapes and few other scary things!
There was also a bridge and backing between cones.
We didn't place, but had a great time.
Two happy cowgirls.
