Rodeo Night

WOW, that's pretty much all I can say about tonight's rodeo.... DD was not having any luck tonight. It was crazy, her horse just kept stopping at random times.. Not doing what he was supposed to be doing, just a total mess!!! OH how frustrating!! DD handled it with grace though, she completed all of her events and got times they just weren't her "best'...

DD after her barrel run!



All around it was just a strange night for all of the horses, there were horses out of control EVERYWHERE!!! It was crazy!! Some friend's ours had their young son out warming up (maybe around 4-5 yrs old).. But his horse is usually very good and tonight he just ran straight towards the wall of the arena (during warm up, not even eventing) and stopped at the last minute and the little guy just dumped right off of him. Well apparently after he fell (we couldn't see because there was a trailer blocking our view) the horse then stepped on his leg. His mom took him to the hospital and he has a broken and dislocated Femur...Poor kiddo :( I feel horrible for him!!

On top of his injury there must have been at least 3 girl's bucked off of their horses. Many horses running wild, and rearing up. Which of course one of those rearers is Pete, DD's horse... UHH!!! So needless to say I was glad when it was over!!!
