I felt much more comfortable out in the show pen. Still made a few mistakes of course. I need to stop harder out there like I do at home. I had my reins a bit tight and so got a reining penalty and then I had a hot quit on my second cow. I guess I waited too long and he started moving before I put my hand down. And I can tell in the video I stopped a bit short a few times. Oops but all in all still a better show. And I had no trouble cutting out of the herd that was nice. I figured out why I have trouble, at home we pick a cow for me to cut but at the show we are supposed to pick after they are out top. But its coming I'm figuring it out and Doug's been great, he gave me a cow after they we out this time and that worked a lot better.
I also took a pic of my score sheet but its a bit fuzzy but close enough. I got a 63, not a bad score, sure not good enough to win anything but at least its a score :)
(WS Hesastar cause he really is a star :) 6th down )
(and the bruise on my arm from hitting the saddle
trying to keep my hand down, doesn't really hurt just looks ugly)
Today is a new month, a day off and we are heading to Lethbridge to visit Neil's cousin and will be back riding on Wednesday.
