    Running, running, running…

    Life is crazy here. I do it to myself, however. Add projects, on top of projects, on top of chores, on top of everything else.

    But I’ve been getting to run barrels a lot lately, and that is making me quite the happy (ier) camper!

    Here’s a run from two weeks ago:

    I ran in Rapid City this past weekend.


    Saturday’s run was a disaster. Mentally, I was a wreck. I drove my horse right over barrels one and two.

    Sunday, I cleaned it up and was 6 tenths faster, but still didn’t ride him exactly like I should.

    Last night, I ran in Onida, and while I’m still going to one hand too soon, it was a pretty respectable run, and I’m super happy with how it felt. It was a 2D run, and I hope there are many more of those in our future (the runs that feel good – because those will clock)!

    In addition to all the barrel racing, there have been weddings to photograph, school photos and random horse photography thrown in just for good measure:


    I’ll start sharing the photos from the weddings and other shoots soon!

    Happy trails!
