    139E14EE-23DE-4205-A393-E8B5E35A7C0E.jpeg Well folks Sydney (in the middle) and her partners qualified for the AQHA World Finals again and this will be her last year as a youth. Last year she and her partners won the Sorting World Title so we’ve got everything crossed hoping for back to back world championships.
    Just had the first round of team penning and Sydney and crew ran a 59.32 which has them sitting 7th in the go round and safely qualified for the finals for the championship. Solid time but the cows weren’t as cooperative as we’d hoped. Hopefully in the final go the cows they draw get the memo and cooperate a bit better.
    Just waiting on the final go round now. We also have sorting today and barrels tomorrow. I’ll keep all posted as we go.

    Too bad this go-around, but still, being a World Champion is one heck of an accomplishment.

    Her partner with his other team (different horse, I know it gets confusing but you can only ride 1 horse per event but can qualify on multiple horses for the same event) just won the Golden Horse in Level 2.

    Damn, they had it and blew out with the last calf :( Cows ignored the memo again. That was L3 so now on to sorting when it’s time. Still puts them in the top 9 teams in the world for team penning. 54E21436-FA41-42B6-BC63-CBB7C1516214.jpeg ACE95C76-7FE8-4D5A-B1C8-4C9DCF91F686.jpeg 6FACD1E6-64EE-4857-A51F-38B309A7B709.jpeg F62BF824-3CC9-4674-B88E-15069EDDF783.jpeg A38B145A-53B4-4EB2-A0F7-883F66466172.jpeg

    Congratulations to Sydney.

    Glanced at the first photo and recognized where the event was being held. We have a bunch going on and family in town or I would give you a call and we could go grab a bite to eat. Next time you are coming this way give me a call.

    All the best on Sydney's other events!

    Sorry to hear she didn't win. Still awesome that she's competing at that level- you're a lucky dad.

    Now she'll just have to win in the pros next year.

    Thank you. We’ve still got sorting and barrels to go so it’s not over yet. She qualified in 3 events this year.
    Now if we can just get her head cleared up for the next events.

    First round of L3 sorting. 3 cows @40.86. We’ll see if that’s good enough to make the finals :E Nail Biter: 2A4DF937-DFB9-4EE7-A275-F1536BCDEFBE.jpeg 848B2FC6-C06C-4BC9-8382-A2EEC5E10C2B.jpeg 87BE5894-10F1-4222-AE4A-CEC6057A0BE5.jpeg 632819B7-5F4D-4E1D-8A23-2A18A6E1C9EF.jpeg

    First round is still going on but statistically we made the finals.
    We’ll have L2 sorting first then L3 finals. Sheesh. Getting stressful.

    Gizmo, Can you please post some video of what's going on?

    Your play by play needs work and the stills are nice but not as exciting as some video.:A Bravo::E Nail Biter::ROFLMAO:
