Hump Day...




It's hump day, and there are only a thousand things that need to be taken care of...




talking with my attorney, and dealing with county bureaucrats, and the bank, and working on the place, and getting ready for the wedding. But sometimes you just need to set back and enjoy those little funny moments that happen.  
So to lighten things up I'm sharing this video of a dear friends grandson in the cutting at the CHSRA Finals in Bishop, CA.

Kinda starts out slow, but Riley proves that he's a hand...

and from Riley's dad, 
"He isn't big on Cutting, but when he rode out of the pen and the crowd was going wild, he had a smile on his face bigger than the state of Texas!"

    2. I've been on my laptop, Just tried on my Iphone and I can't view it on there. Has to do with vimeo videos being unsupported by by blogger or something...

  2. I was able to see the video and enjoyed it. Had to admire the ability of the horse as well as the boy. I'm guessing however that 120 wasn't a good score. Glad Riley had fun.

    1. Granny Annie,
      Glad you enjoyed it. The horse in this case was a loaner from Southern Cross Ranch. Riley had a good time.

  4. I saw it. Good for him, even when his horse seemed to have had a enough after the first couple of seconds with the first steer. He lost his hat, but not his head and got the horse back into the game.

    1. Suz,
      The cowpony was a loaner for this event, and not one of Riley's regular rope horses, all things considered he did well.

  5. That little bucking sequence a little over a minute in was 'interesting'... :-) Good on him for sticking with it!

      These kids were practically born in the saddle, and they have a lot of try.

  6. Looked good to me! Yeah, sticking on that bucking horse may not have been part of the program but was entertaining. Surely his points couldn't have been lowered because of what the horse did -- especially considering it wasn't his regular steed.

    1. joared,
      His points in the event were lowered because of the bucking horse and the fact that he lost his calf. It's the rules and he is good with that. There are no participation awards here, thank goodness!

      Thanks, love our kids that have so much try!

  8. That was cool, because the only cutting I ever get to do is with a knife when the steer stops moving.
