Externship–DAY 47 & 48–Busy and Beautiful Weekend

We have had an absolutely wonderful and busy weekend. Yesterday was spent by getting up early to help with the Parelli games until about 1:00 pm then to lunch and run some errands. After carpooling for errands we all ate some dinner and grabbed our horses to play. A friend of mine was gracious enough to push me to film my Level 4 liberty audition, so we filmed and Sundance just blew my socks off! We all went and played with patterns in the arena and then went for an adventurous dose of a midnight trail ride! We tucked our horses in bed in anticipation for the Martin Black roping and cowmanship clinic.

So the next morning we woke up early with our fancy Parelli clothing, just to make Parelli look even more spiffy! We fed our horses as I ran up to the lodge to pack some sandwiches and snacks for lunch time off campus. We eventually found the clinic after much confusion on the GPS’s part around 8:55 am and found the Parelli trailer to help groom off the Parelli horses and muck the big trailer, just for fun! Pat, Caton, John, Kallie, Berin, Carol and another instructor came to the clinic to learn as participants and auditors.

The morning consisted of learning some new techniques on the dummies then the afternoon was cattle savvy with a big herd of little squirts and big horned shrimps! Was very interesting to watch, I think I will leave the rough tough roping to the cowboys, I can’t see myself handling a cow that way. But it was great to watch and learn nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

We helped the Parelli’s pack up and then headed over to Roma’s to eat some pizza as a group. We made our way back here late to tuck our horses in bed, we are all preparing for another daring and high speed week ahead.

Keep all your fingers crossed, am trying to get some time to talk with Berin and Brian tomorrow about a couple of topics that I think are important to my end scores, I am ready to talk with them… I do believe I have my confidence up enough to do it, we will see! Talk with you tomorrow, thanks for listening!
