Inspired to Ride...

Photobucket

Wow! What a tough decision that was. But in the end, Mustang Heritage inspired the winning title for this photo...'Inspired to Ride'. Pop me an email with your addy and I'll get your photo mailed out to you.

The other day I hauled down to Curt's with my new friend, Rod. Actually, her name is Roz, but when Curt asked her, he misunderstood. Then he asked her to spell it...well, Z rhymes with D, don'cha know, and he just shrugged and began calling her Rod. After that first lesson, he figured it out, but it was too late. Rod she was and Rod she will forever be...at least while at Curt's place.

Rod doesn't ride a mustang, but her cute little quarter horse mare is named Sandy, so we'll forgive her. She's a nice moving, hard stopping little mare, too, and they're catching on real well with the bull.

As for me and my Sandy...well, he's catching on so well that I swear there was light between me and the saddle on Wednesday. Better get me some velcro, or super glue, or something to help me stay in place! My boy can move, lemme tell you what! I was laughing so hard that even though I managed to stay on a couple of his hard turns, I nearly fell off simply because I was lost in euphoria.

Now I know what you're saying...where are the videos??? But my computer and my new camera are still not on speaking terms, so no video until this dinasaur of a desktop of mine can be updated. I could do it on the laptop, I suppose...but I don't want to waste laptop space with big video files. So you'll just need to be patient and take my word for it when I tell you this; it won't be long before my hiney needs dusting off...cuz at the rate Sandy is improving, I'll be visiting club dirt again, undoubtedly!

Sounds like lots of fun! I love working with cattle, but don't seem to get the chance enough.
