I am so behind with everything!!! I feel like I have a million things to share LOL!!! So today I will tell you about the HYRA, this stands for Heartland Youth Rodeo Association. This is their 20th year of running this Junior Rodeo. It basically runs every other weekend, both Saturday and Sunday from 9 am till it's done, and sometimes that has been as late as 8 or 9 o'clock!. We absolutely LOVE it!! Last year was out first year to participate and were still kind of iffy about whether we liked some things about it...But then this summer after being back into GHYR it was a bit chaotic because they have switched all jobs and people around, so it was fairly unorganized. But please let me add they are great people who have alot on their plates and I am sure they will get the hang of it!! So DD says "I'm SO excited to be going back to HYRA because they are SO organized" LOL!! That's my girl!!
DD is signed up in multiple events but we will just talk about barrels today, otherwise I could go on for an hour LOL!! So going into the barrels she was a bit nervous since her accident, so she decided to just pace herself and work on getting the pattern perfect with her horse and not apply all of their speed in this run.. And it actually paid off for her, she beat her best personal time with a 16.986. I think obviously if they were going full throttle they'd have done a bit better!! So then on Sundays run she turned a bit to wide on barrel one and ended up with almost a second added from her time the day before...Usually they run better the second day LOL!! But none-the-less she had a great time!!
