I’ve been getting to barrel race a little bit this summer, and Avie and I are really clicking! Thursday before our Father’s Day Branding, I took him to the local Jackpot, where Gump and I have won a couple buckles in the summer series. I love running on a standard pattern so this arena is perfect. But the ground wasn’t.
I ended up mostly unscathed, though I did sprain my MCL (medial collateral ligament). As of today, it’s still sore and it hurts to roll around in bed at night and get out of bed in the morning. If I tweak it just right it’s sore, otherwise it’s just a mere annoyance. It’s not stopping me from running barrels or riding, however. We redeemed ourselves this week with a nice, money-winning run, that also qualified us for the Bonus Race Finals.
