We are at the National Reining Horse Association Derby in Oklahoma City! So far the weather has been pretty good. We are all set up and ready to show. I only brought one horse to show in the Derby as we had the opportunity to sell several of my others.
I will be showing Cashing Black Chex, my 4-year-old stallion owned by the Wranglin Partners. So far he has won around $115,000 in just several events. My draw is 26 this Wednesday, I am looking forward to it! I really love this colt and hope I do my part well. I brought several of my 3 year olds to ride and have been pleasantly surprised as to how well and quick they adjusted for their first time out.
Feel free to come and say hello if you are here. We will also be hosting a Pale Face Dunnit ice cream social this Saturday around 11:00 am. We hope you can join us! Best of luck to all the exhibitors this week and stay cool!
