David and I and Elyssa watched Chuck compete in a National Reined Cow Horse Association competition this weekend.
Chuck and Rooster
First they do a reining pattern of circles, sliding stops and spins,
and then they do the "fence" part of the competition. That's working a steer up and down a fence line (long side of the arena), then working the steer in a figure eight pattern. It's pretty amazing. Of course I worry about the steer.
