So, last week Mrs. June (my horse trainer), her husband, Mr. Wendell, and my whole family made the trip down to the middle of Denver to go to the 2015 RAM Invitational Freestyle Reining at the National Western Stock Show. Mrs. June bought the tickets for us because I was very interested in reining for Ollie (because I happen to be interested in all things with Ollie and cannot decide on one). I found out that Ollie was trained by the reining trainer when he was younger and knows how to do sliding stops, rollbacks, and spins. Because Western is where my heart seems to really lie, I am seriously considering doing it with him. We shall see.
Of course, if you know me and this blog well enough then you will know that I am a visual person and I take lots, and lots of pictures. I tried my best to take some at this event, but it was dark (they dimmed the lights) and then if I put on the flash the people in front of me where I was sitting would give me dirty looks. So, most of the pictures are blurry, but fun none the less!!!
