    Okie dokie all you can smashers, share your runs from this season here!! I love seeing everyone progress over the season! Also, what are your goals for this season?

    Personally, I want to make it into the 1D somewhat consistently this year, and get a young horse going on the pattern to exhibition by the end of the season!

    Here are my first 3 runs from this Spring so far, they've landed us in the middle/top of the 2D which is great for us both having roughly 8 months off. Just now working on getting some more air into the ol' Squiggers! These runs are all at the same jackpot series, the pattern is monsterous!!!

    I'm so excited about this thread! Squiggs is looking good! Under 30 seconds--that's pretty spectacular for a big pattern like that!

    I'm getting my new barrel prospect within the next couple of weeks here so my goal is to get him/her trained on the pattern and enter a local race or two. I'm hoping s/he'll be to Squigg's level by October, maybe NFR come December. :p Hahaha I wish, more likely I'll just be getting my horse used to the show environment.

    I don't have any runs yet this year. Maybe I'll come back and post some videos of training I do this summer, though. :)

    Still waiting to see where we placed and I didn't hear the time either, lol.
    I just let her cruise through and pick her own pace, and just concerned myself with getting her set up better.

    Pulled our first 1D check yesterday, I'm so thankful for this horse. Good things come to those who work their butts off and that's a fact!

    I placed in the 1D for the first time and to make it even better I landed at the top of it (4th place)
    Last time I was in this arena I ran a 17.0 then we come back and slice .6 seconds off of it to get a 16.4! Half a second off the winner :)



    Anyone have any tips for me? I screwed up the second barrel because I lifted my hand all the way up to my face:eek2:

    @SoutherngirlBR Yeah, the video doesn't work. Check your privacy setting!
