Our new hobby: No opinions involved, just you, your horse, and an electronic timer. Yee haw.
Kate and Sugar running two barrel flags in 8.156 at the PNW Championships, the second fastest time in all age groups. As you can tell by our pictures, this is an incredibly fun event. When we first started with our current trainer, Brenda, in May '05, we believed we could never be the kind of riders who did this event at a dead run. Now we love it. It is so much fun to be able to lean way down and nail it, it's kind of a badge of honor to be able to do it fast, even if we miss, it's still fun. No more trotting two barrel flags for us! :-) For a video of me running this event, go to our slideshows page.
