Saturday I may have had the most fun I've ever had on my horse at the club's "Fun Day". (Moms Daughters and Horses) It was a totally laid back, non-competive game day--good-natured and pretty humorous. (There were some pretty nice ribbons to win, though).
I can see where gaming could be a bit addictive--the speed, comradery with your horse, excitement of the game--fun stuff. It seemed like the horses even liked it!
I've never gamed before and had no desire to, but the club thought it would be a fun thing to do with the daughters and a good way to teach gaming. It was.
The only competition we "won"--Cowboy and I--was flags. He's an old hand at sidepassing and trail stuff--so it figured that would be our category.
The area where we need HELP is turning. We took our turns way too wide and it took lots of time off our runs. He could haul on the straight stretch though.
Here are a few pictures the timer was nice enough to take of us. He took about 133 all together--of all the participants--but these are the only ones I think I can share on my personal blog without everyone's permission. The club's forum has the rest of the shots! (Like Flying Cowgirl--who won the overall prize!!)
