Thursday was the first day Tony and I got to ride alone. Aunt Jane took Uncle Larry, Jack, and Daniel to town, and Katherine never once rode with us while we were there. So we decided to take the trip we’d made the first day, but with a camera so we could take some pictures.
We stopped at the arena at headquarters and rode our horses around a little. Someone is doing barrels, unlike last year. Crockett, Tony’s horse, was alright with them, but Paycheck, my horse was spooked by them. In this picture, I was trying to get him comfortable enough with the barrels to ride by them, but it didn’t work. So Paycheck and I gave up on the arena and rode in the round pen that was adjoining the arena.
