This past weekend, I went with Ashley to one of her barrel races. She took along her two-year-old horse, Dash. He and Lexus got quite attached to each other, but he did alright for going to a show for the first time. We also found his tickle spot. Most horses have a tickle spot, commonly below their neck, but Dash has one on his rump; a less common area. And he throws a fit when you scratch it.
This show was smaller than previous ones because there was only one association at the show. All in all, there were about 50 riders. Ashley placed 2nd in the 3rd Division. Right now, she stands 3rd in the 3rd Division overall for the season. If she keeps this up, she might make it to World's in October. Let's hope she does.
