Tonights barrel racing is cancelled and rescheduled to sept 6th. Currently we have a few inches of water standing on the end of the ring where the horses would be turning around the barrels. Since we use a fine sand for our ring this mix can make it slippery for horses that can make fast tight turns. And rather than risk injury to horse or rider we have no choice but to reschedule.
August 23rd is our Saturday night Barrel / Gymkhana night. We will be presenting buckles for Champion and Reserve Champion for both our Senior and Junior Divisions. I will post a class list soon and will have pics of the buckles up soon as well. The show will start at 7:00 pm...gates will be open around 5:00pm
Here is the class list for the Aug 23rd show... Poles, Cloverleaf Barrels, Speed Barrels, Slot Barrels, Bi-Rangle Barrels and Keyhole.
class fees are 7.00 for each class. since this is an open event, you do not need to be a member to particpate
the ring is currently holding water from rain we got today and last night....anymore rain comes down and the ring will be to slick for the horses to run at speed and be safe. So we decided that Sept 6th will be a better date for the makeup....i will post up around noon tomorrow
Due to the heat index being over the 100 degree mark for Saturday and T-storms on and off all day for Sunday. We have no choice but to go ahead and cancel both days.
Just for a heads up.....the chance of a show this weekend is not looking to good. right now the forecast is 90 plus with humidity at 70 percent. and then t storms on sunday with the same high heat and humidity. We will check the forecast again on friday morning and make the call.
Understand that rider and horse safety is our top priority and we do not take cancelling a show lightly. And though there are people that feel they can handle that type of heat. At the end of the day everyones health and safety falls on the shoulders of the bbhsa officers, and we wont risk the health of any horse or rider.
