Well since the last time that we spoke a few things have happened!
Firstly, I have started to get some nice Flying Lead Changes, Online and Freestyle! This is pretty darn exciting since it is something that has been a challenge for both me and Jack! Yay!!!!!
On this past Thursday and Friday (August 4th and 5th) I got invited to go and participate in the Official Parelli Demo Team for the Archuleta County Fair in Pagosa Springs CO. What a freaking cool opportunity!! This was a HUGE DREAM come true!!! I also got to ride in the Sport Chassis it was so cool!
Once at the fair, Jack was a champion!! We had a great demo showing the crowd what we could do! On Friday, it was even better than the day before! I was a little more relaxed and just had fun with it and that made all the difference in the world! The thing I take away from that is: "KEEP IT NATURAL"!!!!!! And also: "TAKE CARE OF YOUR HORSEMANSHIP AND IT WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU"!!!!!
Anyway I want to say a huge thank you my horse Jack! I also owe a great big thank you to Berin Macfarlane; thanks for giving me the opportunity to see what I could do with my awesome partner Jack!!! Thanks to Bill Thacker, Ryan Rose and Hillary Rose for setting up the event and also offering me so much support - you guys are the best!!!
At your service for ever and always, and keeping it natural,
Kailaan Walker and Jack!
