Weekly Update

I had a very busy weekend watching my granddaughter start her new year of riding with the Youth Rodeo Association and the Texas High School Rodeo Association. Both rodeos were held in Edna, TX at a beautiful arena. There were over 700 runs with appro 250 youth riding Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Then Sunday again over 500 runs and again approx. 250 youth riding. The Youth Rodeo, Anna was competing with 36 youth in poles and 40 in barrels. Then Sunday, in the high school rodeo, competing with 46 other youth in poles and 54 in barrels. She did good as it was her first rodeo with the high school rodeos. There is no breakdown of ages in the high school, with girls from 9th grade thru 12 grade competing together. Anna did place in the middle of both events.
Here is a couple of pictures as she is starting her run on poles.

I did get my Redbirds back from the framer. Here it is and I think the frame is so great and really sets the piece off. I will get a better picture later, but wanted to show it to you.
