Rodeo Queen

I picked up Annika at camp, after parents' day. We got there just in time for the rodeo, and all of the kids were barrel racing, followed by barrel weaving. Annika did a brilliant job, especially in barrel racing. She looked like a natural on Wildfire, and had no qualms about urging her into a gallop. Barrel weaving was a little harder, since Wildfire decided on speed, rather than chosing the proper path. But she still won both events for the younger girls... and I wouldn't be surprised if her barrel racing time was as good or better than the older girls. (Moms do get to brag sometimes.)
She would now like to ride every day when she gets back to Sweden, and compete - in barrel racing. Unfortunately, rodeo opportunities are few and far between there...
