10th 2006 Update
We went to camp and
trail ride at Ramsey State park with my nephews Austin and Andrew. We met
a very nice Mule man named Jay. He convinced us to attend and
compete in a nearby Fun show rodeo sponsored by the Ramsey Saddle Club.
Kris, Austin, Andrew and I all competed in Grande Parade, Pleasure
riding, Pole Bending, Barrel racing, and Stop In the box. Austin and
Andrew also competed in cowboy dress up, boot race and Goat tail
pull. Kris placed 5th in pole bending race, Austin won the cowboy
dress up race and Andrew came in second in the Goat tail pull.
Austin and Andrew both took home ribbons.
Sorry many of the photos didn't come out. Taking pictures from
horseback at night while participating in a show was not easy. These are
the best ones below.
