Finals are a wrap. Thursday I knocked 1st. Disappointing but I'm ok with it. He ran good we were just a bit too tight coming out. On the plus side we had *awesome* 2nd and 3rd barrels!
Kimfer knocked, Julie knocked with one horse & ran just a bit too fast with the other.
Our friend Brenda made it back to the short go. Unfortunately she didn't know she had until, by chance, she took a look at the draw and saw her name!
Good thing she and Holly had stuck around to watch! They were all packed and ready to go. Just had to load their horses after watching. Sadly she was a bit rushed to get ready and her horse wasn't warmed up right and B wasn't in the right frame of mind.
After it was all over our district had to tear down the arena - take down timers, signs, score clock, remove barrel covers, pull markers. A lot of work but it went fast.
Hopefully things work out better next year but it's a shame it wasn't this year. The saddles (10!) And the buckles were gorgeous! Oh well guess I'll have to try to win a buckle at our district finals! :)
