Our Very First Gymkhana!!!!
« on: June 06, 2018, 12:27:16 pm »

Finally broke down and did our first Gymkhana. They have it the first Sunday of every month. I knew about it but wasn't prepared due to never really doing obstacles, cantering, going fast etc. And did not look forward to waking up at 4:30 AM as all our friends get there at 7:15 to get their spot and we do a potluck.

The hardest part every time was getting Jex to go through the gates. LOL Even when Dozer left he would stand there quietly with horses all around. But once we were called it was like he was saying,"oh heck no I'm not going in there alone" haha. Once inside we were fine. Thanks for watching. I'm sure I'll be here for the July 1rst one. And I know more or less how I need to ride....faster! Only 3 in our class and I came in last for everyone of them by seconds.

This was the single barrel. It took so long to come through because I was fighting him. I won.

Here's the cloverleaf which I got him in.

This was the triple barrels where you can see me fighting him Grrrrr

And the keyhole which one of our friends said this was where most horses would stop and balk at the white lines. I thought oh no problem. Yeah he was freaked out a little by them LOL

Finally had time to watch the videos.  It looks like a whole lot of fun.  I did a couple of play days with my gaited Morgan and loved them.

Good for you!   :)

Have to agree with you that I wouldn’t like getting up that early either!
