Among the events that DD does at her Junior Rodeo's is Pole Bending!! She really loves it, but her horse not so much LOL!! They have had quite a struggle to learn the pattern and run it correctly. Saturday morning pole's were first, and she blazed out there and came around pole #6 and Pete (her horse) just wanted to go straight!! So she backed him a step to get him back on the pattern, well in this new age group that she's in 5-8 grades they do not allow correcting, you get an automatic no time...After looking the video over I told her from now on if that happens mow the pole down! You get 5 seconds added and it's not really what we want to teach her but she needs to do something! We actually don't even know if Pete would hit the pole...They have never knocked one down! So Sunday's pole run she decided that it was pattern first and speed later, so she went out and got around pole 6 and she kept control and they did it!! Now their weave up was fair but the weave back was sloppy...She needs to get his hip out instead of completely relying on the reins to work him!! But her time was 31.157..Not bad not good LOL!!
