Barrel racing. I have seen it before but ages ago. Your photo of the horse racing back is a delight to see. They try so hard to win. And the rider (is that you) really looks like they are having a ball as well.

I also like the horse getting a bite to eat. Nice shots. Both of them

Thank you too for visiting my blog today and for commenting about the photo of the harness racing horse.

Great pics. Of course, I love horses. That bridle is way cool! Is is a new one or one of the originals from the fifties!! Definitely what is in vouge here now in the states but most of them go wide at the bottom and cover up the tear bone. I like the finer look like yours.

Nope, not me racing. That's a 11-year old boy. I was simply covering the event for the newspaper.

I haven't ridden in many years, since before my daughter was born and she's now 15.

Hi Gretchen,
I'm giggling over your comment on my blog post about Pussy cheques...you aren't the only ones who use that word for something other than cats! I typed it like that deliberately, wondering if anyone else had a double track mind like me!!

Great WW shots! I have never done any barrel racing with my horses but sure appreciate how hard they work to win! Love that bridle, looks vintage.
