NBHA CALIFORNIA DISTRICT 20
It was a beautiful day of barrel racing at San Pasqual Valley Ranch. Thank you to Lynn and Delia Devenport for hosting us. A big thank you to everyone who did so much extra work due to my broken foot. To my mom, Michelle deVries who got their at their at 8am and Dawn Colwell who helped me enter and to Dawn and Mary Row who helped me up in the booth. We where missing Lori who always keeps us super organized. To all the riders that drew over 50 on a second horse. Thanks for your patience when we announced your draw late. Sorry about that.
It was fun to watch Desiree make her first barrel run in the open and then win money in the senior. Talk about excited.
It is always fun to see the youth grow and improved. Hannah Herman has taken over the reins of Presley her grandmothers nice gelding and made a very pretty run winning the Open 3D.
The race for the year end championships are close. We have our final race at Prices November 9th. Don't forget you must run at half our races. This year we will have nine races so you must have run at four races to receive year end awards.
There has been lots of talk on Facebook lately about our previous State Finals location. The negative is behind us and we are moving on to the future. If you have ideas about a covered arena and grounds that would be appropriate for our finals and ideas on how to staff for barrel setters/gate person/TO takers/etc let me know. Any positive ideas for the future I will pass on. We all want to have the best finals we can.
See ya all in November.
