July 10 - 11
Took Cash to the Big J Barrel Blast in Waterloo, Iowa and had a very good weekend. Saturday we had a great run going and my rein flipped over his head at the 2nd barrel and we ran the rest of the pattern with both reins on one side! He did great! We were sitting 3rd in the 2D until the last 5 riders when Mesa Leavitt bumped up the fast time and then we were knocked down to just out of the 2D Money -- but I was very happy with his run! :)
Sunday he had ground trouble leaving third and still clocked 2 tenths faster. He ended up running the 16th fastest of the day and was just out of the 2D money again!
June 25 - 27
Cash cut his shoulder open and had to have stitches - he hadnt been rode but FOUR Times since BBR finals end of April before the Kirkwood barrel bash. He was fat and out of shape and I ended up taking him to the vet after the race to find out he was sore in his hocks also! But he ran super well and tried really hard.
Friday he ran a 15.008 (a personal best for us) but I barely pulled down the 3rd barrel. It would have been TOP of the 2D - a 14.4 won it. We clocked the 35th fastest of the barrel bash - pretty happy with that being fat and out of shape! :)
was the Future Fortunes side pot. All I cared about was being clean! We
ended up running a 15.110 and was mid 2D. Still was in the top 50 out
of 300+ barrel racers and it was a TOUGH barrel bash. We ended up 2nd in the 2D for Future Fortunes and made $467.50.
