Saturday night marked the end for the season of a youth rodeo circuit DD does....So sad....I really look forward to rodeo nights, so I guess for the rest of the summer she will just run in open classes at the "regular" rodeo's..
Not only was DD and her cousins running in the rodeo we also were running our Rhinestone Cowgirls booth!! So we were busy, busy, busy!!! We had alot of family and friends out to watch that night which was kind of disappointing because we didn't get to visit with them very much :(
The rodeo went pretty good!! DD had a good run on her barrels and poles, she did fantastic on goats and dummy roping but when it was time for flags....WHEW that was a mess!!! I'm not sure what is going on with her horse but ever since she almost went off the side of him a few weeks ago doing flags it's almost like he's scared to get to close...I have it all on video, except for a brief moment when I shut the camera off to tell her she was kicking her back cinch :) I then immediately got it back up and well I won't spoil the surprise of what Pete did so go check it out!! You gotta check it out!!! I'm telling you a run that usually takes her 8-9 seconds took over 3 minutes LOL!!
I must throw in here that little DD really Cowgirl'ed up during this because when this lady first came out to help her she told her "no I don't want you to get to close because he might step on you" LOL!! So then she said "oh there is my Papa" and so Papa asked her "do you want me to lead you out" and she told him "no I want to finish my run" (even though she wouldn't be getting any points for it)!! So then when she led him out of the arena he of course wanted to jet out like they usually do but she held him back and made him walk!! Now that's a Cowgirl!!
I hope you will enjoy watching the longest flags run in history I'm sure LOL!! You can watch it in the youtube feed at the top of my blog or to watch the video in full size click here
