Brimming With Confidence Or Delusional?

With my full-time status at the office coming to a close, I have finally gotten around to scouting out all of the available equestrian events in my new area.

I knew there were a lot. But holy moly! It's like living in AZ again. There is something going on constantly around here. Horse shows...barrel racings...rodeos. And that is just the stuff that is listed online already. I know there are multiple little other organizations in the area that simply post their little open shows and playdays in the local Nickle.

That stuff is all well and good. I am going to have a full roster of horses this year that are going to need those kinds of events.

But, other than a few local barrel racings that I want to take Moon to...for us to get back in synch...I want to focus on a higher level of competition.

I'm trying not to put the cart before the horse...but I'm actually thinking about buying my WPRA(Women's Pro Rodeo Association) permit this year.

I was looking into the Colorado Pro Rodeo Association and a good majority of those rodeos are also PRCA/WPRA. I'm already going to be buying my CPRA card and probably renewing my NRCA(Northwest Ranch Cowboys Association) card. That last one just in case Meg and I go spend some time back home this summer.

It kind of makes sense to go ahead and buy my WPRA permit...just in case ole' Moon and I hit a lick and start winning some money-LOL.

It's always better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

I envy you with all the activities.

I think you're confident! BTW- thanks for mentioning the timing on my blog. My horse is super long-strided and not exceptionally rate, so it does make it harder to judge! Good luck this rodeo year. Now you know how I feel when I'm in texas. There's a barrel race every. single. night. of. the. week. and more than one to choose from every weekend! enjoy!

I need to move out towards your neck of the woods. We have NOTHING here. I'm not kidding. I have to drive over some mountain pass in order to get close to anything. It sucks.

Stephanie said...

Go get that permit - and then tell us all about your summer racing at the rodeos!

Sorry I'm late to the party but really, could you not predict my reply? carpe dium my friend! If not now, when? You miss 100% of the shots you dont take. Need any more cliches let me know:) How about "one rises to the level of thier competition!"

If your not ready (which I doubt is the case) you'll just be more motivated work at it!

Time to kick some ass!
