Pole Bending in the Pouring Rain





Diese Fotos sind von Sonntag, da ist M. beim Reitturnier 4. geworden in dieser Disziplin, wo man um diese Pfeiler reiten muss, hin u her u dann ganz schnell zurueck. Es hat in Stroemen geregnet, aber es hat ihr trotzdem gefallen.
These photos are from Sunday, where our daughter was competing in the Open Game Show of our County Fair. She came in 4th in this event and said it was still fun!

Pole bending is hard in nice weather let alone in the rain! Good for the team of horse and rider.
