I’m so EXCITED!

I cannot wait until Friday! I’m super excited! Lynx officially took the title of Champion of the Open and Adult for the year with BRAT Barrel Racing! Friday is awards day!!!!

We started with a goal of making it to as many races as we could. Then COVID hit… two races left and Lynx got in a fight over a fence with the neighbors horses. I was literally points ahead and needed to run the last two races! So I was able to grab up Splash and finish the season on him! Keep in mind, Lynx ran the other 9 races!!! I only missed one race this last season!

I think the biggest shock to me is that my goal was top 10. My goal was go to all of the races and I missed one due to a storm. My horse got injured and I was still able to finish the season. How in the world did all of that work out? My head is still spinning over the reality of what happened!!!!!!

To all the barrel racers out there, I encourage you to set goals. Make a plan. Figure out how to make that plan work. BE FLEXIBLE. Remember that if it’s not God’s plan, you need to look around and adjust! Keep posted to my blog and FB page to see all of the Goodies Zbar Lynx To Cash will bring home this weekend!

Do You Remember?

Do you remember your first horse? How did it happen? What were you thinking on that day? Did it lock you in the horse world forever?

For me, it did. My first horse as a green broke Appaloosa gelding james TJ! He was hard headed and a bit of a jerk but I remember! He was a Christmas present! He was to be brought to the house but the person to haul him lost their truck (stolen) the night before so my folks had to make some extravagant story to get me to the stable! He was in a stall with a half eaten ribbon around his neck! It made me one happy kid!!!!

Last night I had the extreme pleasure and being part of a girl and her first horse!!! I was here to whiteness the joy! She came out to “take a lesson on my new horse” then was told that Suzy Q was actually HER new horse!!!! The sheer joy rolling off that almost 15 year old girl was contagious!!!!! You guys, it helped me remember WHY I do what I do! Why I found a love of horses. Why I love seeing people/kids riding and learning all about horses!!!!!!
