This evening was Anky’s first international reining competition and I was personally amazed at how much her spins had improved since her first reining competition only one month ago. It was really nice to watch the reiners go. I met a very nice Canadian judge and talked about the AQHA and youth riding a bit. Again it was just a bit surreal for me to feel like I was standing around as a child in Texas watching the Quarters work and of course I was quickly pulled out of that moment when I hear Dutch being spoken all around me. I even spotted a blue healer dog! It’s a complete package of the American western scene here! Too cool!
