First up was the combined Roping and Cutting class. I was not feeling ambitious enough to compete in this class. With entries like this,
and this, I don't think I was missed.
Other Stockwork was next. I sat that one out, too. Fortunately Sandy...
and Lu did not.

Emma made her Blue Skies Western debut in the Games class. Doesn't she look pretty in pink?
Another pole bender, this one belongs to Lu.
All sorts of mounted games were represented. Lu's Appaloosa competed in the Keyhole Race,
Margarita Madness in the Camp Race,
and Teresa's swish tail Lady Phase in Musical Mats.
Emma took a few minutes between the Games and Reining class to change tack and riders. Fortunately she's just as cute in blue as she is in pink.
I am not usually a big fan of mini tack, but this little guy's saddle was amazing. If anyone knows who made this, please post to the comments section. I like to give credit where credit is due and someone definitely deserves credit for this!
One more reining entry and that's it for today. Unfortunately, I'm not sure who this one belongs to.
Coming next--Western Trail, Western Pleasure, Other Western and championship callbacks!
