I am so excited and blessed!!!! Today Lynx will take the Champion Open and Champion Adult awards for the year!!!! The goal this year was to make it too as many races as I could. There are 12 races a year. You HAVE to make it to 6 to receive awards! I did miss the first race last June due to a big storm. As you might know, Lynx hurt him self March 28, 2020. I was blessed with a backup horse for the last two races! A Splash Of Jet cinched the saddles for the year! Splash is now part of my team!!!!
I could not have succeeded without God guiding me! I always like to say a prayer before my runs and reach out in person to pray with others before a run. God has blessed me with one AWESOME gelding Named Zbar Lynx To Cash. Lynx was born at our ranch. He is the third generation of my hand picked bloodlines. Yes, I also have Perks On The Fly, his maternal brother. So I am SUPER blessed!!! Adding Splash to the team is just icing on the cake!
So as I hook up to my trailer today, to haul to the BRAT ATTACK, All I Can Think IS….How BLESSED I TRULY AM TO BE ABLE TO RUN LYNX THIS WEEKEND!!! Healing up his leg has been hard. He has been giving lessons but not ready to run. Finally, this week, he is growing HAIR on the wound!!! I might have to run him in polo’s on the hind legs but….he is ready!!! He has gotten some good workouts in the last few weeks! Lord, thank you for blessing me with SO MUCH! Thank you for these amazing athletes to ride! Thank you for allowing me to run my own business to provide for my horses!!!! I am so blessed to be able to work from home! Thank you for blessing me with a wonderful husband and child whom encourage me to do what I LOVE!!! Thank you, Lord, for all the gear and the vehicles to get to and from these races! I honestly don’t know how I got to where I am today. Your Presence has infiltrated my life and Blessed me beyond belief!
As I load up today, I thank you for all of my blessings and my rides. I pray for safety for all, in and out of the arena! I pray that ALL OF US remember how BLESSED we are to have the opportunity to barrel race!!!!!! Without YOU, none of this would be possible!!!!!! Please help Lynx and I do the best we can and work together as a TEAM! In Jesus Name, AMEN!
