Here is video from the weekend starting with Thursday night’s run. I won’t show you Friday’s run because Gump fell going around the first, and the rest of the run went down the toilet. The ground in Rapid was really deep, and he really struggled with it. And as much as I hate to admit it, I feel like, subconsciously I was really freaked out about it too. He gets better every run. We just need to clean up our turns on the backside of the barrels and we’ll be even faster. I got to talk to Hallie Melvin while I was in Rapid and I’ll be getting to go ride with her soon. I’m very excited about that. Her horses run in very little headgear, and she’s like me, in that she believes less is more. If you can keep them in a snaffle, why put them in anything else?
Thursday in Dupree where he ran faster than he has so far this summer:
I’m going to dedicate an entire post to Kelsey’s runs this weekend. That girl did really good and brought home $200! Needless to say, she was stoked!
