Sunday we had the annual gymkhana with our riding club. I was the coordinator and one of the judges this year. It was a beautiful day and we had a great turn out. Being the weekend before Halloween, I planned a costume class and encouraged riders to wear their costumes all day. The Trail Class had a Halloween theme and it was a hit; horses spooked more than usual and we were all quite entertained. I didn't get many pictures since I was busy trying to keep things running smoothly. Jerry won Hi Point & Runner-up Hi point for the day. He won the Trail Class on that cutie little mule Pistol. He rode both his horse and the mule in all of the events. We were dressed as rodeo clowns, I looked like a freak. I did Jerry's clown face and then he did mine.... judge for yourselves... His excuse was that he wasn't very experienced with make-up.... sheesh my face looked like a camouflaged soldier.
But I had FUN! The day was filled with laughter.
This construction zone required the horses to back through a caution taped curve. This was one of the few that actually did it!
NEWS FLASH! I have the NEWS on as I am posting this. I experienced an EARTHQUAKE just an hour or so ago and I didn't even realize it! My FIRST California Earthquake, I don't like that it snuck up on me like that. The house did rumble and shake, I went out with the flash light to check the trees around the yard. Nothing was out of place so I just figured a big truck must have rumbled by. Not sure why I thought of a truck, they never have rattled the house before.
Jerry is out of town for a few days, I just tried calling him but he is not answering his phone. I am sure he is in bed already.
I thought I was out of the Earthquake zone. I am not too crazy about this.....
