Well that was part of it but I shoulda known better. I know her, if shes doing it OK but not right I and should just get on her and make her do it. But shed been so nice I didn't.
Big mistake. First run at finals she pulled the same thing again but as I went to kick her back I lots my stirrups and it was not good so we just quit. I was mad by then. Partly at her but also at myself. I worked her pretty hard after our run and she knew that wasn't a good idea and she was tired.
I let her catch her breathe and we went out again. This time no more goofing around I just loped and we slowed up and we had a very nice departure from barrel one. Yay! And then leaving barrel 2 was not nice but I got her straightened out and we finished with a time of 21.4040. Slowest but I was a lot happier with that.
And I think shes done with barrel racing for a while cause the winter cutting series starts up in January and I plan on doing that with her. Although I plan to ride Jess and Bailey and so maybe we will do some with them. Although I am pretty sure it will be more crazy and more fast but I will start slower with them I think.
I am also on a waiting list for a barrel clinic in January I kinda hope I make it in should be interesting.
