Had so much fun in the sporting events of the Luddenham Show :) Kai was so well behaved and he raced so well :) So to find out how we went scroll down...
Kai looking out the window on the drive there.
Before the sporting they had mini trots. How cute was this little girl?
And they're racing...
Kai and I warming up.
Besides my eyes being closed, this is a pretty nice picture of Kai and I.
Cool timing on a canter pic.
First race was the pole bending. We did really well but weren't fast enough to place.
Then we are off in the flag race.
This heat was neck and neck with me and the lady in the blue shirt.
Then on the last flag I faultered and almost came off and sje just beat me, so Kai and I didn't make it to the finals.
The blood on my middle finger where I grabbed Kai's mane to stop myself falling off in the flag race.
Next was the long flag, here we are waiting for the lady to say "GO!".
Kai was super fast...
...but my flag missed the barrel :(
Next was the leading race. This was gallop to the flag pole, dismount and run back.
In our element here.
We made it to the finals in this race. Here is the finals and I am about to dismount...
We actually came second but the rules for the finals where a bit weird so even thought we were faster we only got third.
Kai and I posing with our third place ribbon :D
The last race for the day was the barrel race. Here we are heading for the first barrel...
Leaving the second barrel...
Homeward bound. Besides a stop at the first barrel :S we did a time of 20.3 seconds :) We had a great time and made some friends out there too. Thanks Mum for taking us and for being our groom/photographer as always :D and thanks Dad for trimming his feet the day before ;)
