Well we got here at 7:00 a.m. and got Princess and Dino settled in. I rode Princess for a little while and she did really good. Then we got a number painted on her butt for the adoption. She is number 25. We had along wait until the 6:00 PM IN-hand trail coarse. We had a 3:00 p.m. trainers meeting and I got a big surprise! BLM presented Dino with a blanket for High Point Senior Mustang for the Mustang buckle series last year. It was a great honor and very neat that they presented it in front of all the other trainers.
We got Princess ready and headed over to the arena for our trail coarse. We were selected to go 23 out of 28 horses, so we had a long wait. Lisa got to watch all the horses go before us. Princess and I went in and did our thing and I was disappointed that we had one bobble. We had to load in a horse trailer that had cow manure in it and she didn't like it. She JUMPED in on the second try. The rest of the coarse went well. When I came out of the arena I had one trainer shake my hand and tell me it was flawless and another trainer who went behind me came out and said mine go was GREAT! Then Lisa came down and told me that most of the horses didn't load in the trailer very well. So I guess we did pretty good! It felt great. Lisa got a video of it, but it's almost 11:00 so we will upload it tomorrow.
