New Personal Record: Poles

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 9, 2014, 5:23 PM

So I had a show today, and Destiny and I finally broke our pole bending curse :giggle: We've been running 25s for over a year now, and we've only hitten the 24 range when we hit something. Well, yesterday I worked her in a halter doing an exercise from my new pole bending dvd, and I'm VERY pleased to say, that we probably had our best pole run ever today. We ran a 24.3, which isn't fast by many means, but you guys don't understand how hard it is to get though poles on her. She likes to dive them, and it's not unusual for her butt to take them out. Well, today she was perfect. I never felt at any time during the run that she was going to dive into them. I didn't even have to pick her up to get her off any poles. Made me super happy :) I was smiling and laughing running home, so when I stopped I like did a fist punch because it was hands down the easiest pole run we've ever had.

Overall, pretty good day, have a feeling some of the times weren't accurate. I was the only one after the show started that had a "timer malfunction" and it should have been at least a half second faster of time, because I know what she runs on the pattern and it was beautiful turns and I pushed her harder than usual, so we should have been a low 16 and not a low 17, last month we had a low 16 and I pushed a little harder today. They used a hand watch, which is fine, but when the person with the watch is  someone who is rooting for the person against you, it's not likely the most accurate time. But still managed to win the class by a few tenths of seconds. Barrels went down the drain, didn't hit anything, but I tore up my right hand and retore my scratch on my left hand, and when I got home I found out I also tore up my stomache with my belt buckle (which never happens). It was an okay run, but it seemed faster in some parts, and then in other parts, it seemed slow, and I know it was by far not our best run. I thought I tore off my nail it hurt so bad (plus all the blood was around my nail bed), but it looks like it's just mostly a huge chunk on the side of my finger. It's at least the width of your average pen/pencil. But yeah, it was 100 degrees outside and I wasn't feeling well from the heat, so I was just happy to have had good runs for the most part all day. That pole run still makes me excited though, you guys have no idea how long I've been trying to get a clean 24. I'm hoping that with some work, we'll get even closer to that 23. The girl in my class I'm running against has gotten 24.0 the last 3 months, and I know she's been working on them, so I'm pretty sure she's tapped out on them, but considering today I shaved off a full half second and then some, I'm pretty happy. I think last month we had a bad 26 second run, and we hit a pole last month so that added time, so I'm not kidding when I say we really stepped it up. I'm usually fighting her to stay off poles, but today she did really well and gave them all space.  Sooooo happy with her pole run today, she also had an excellent figure 8 and bi-rangle. Although in birangle, we probably could have gone faster, since it was slow enough for me to look down at the ground while going around the pole and see the puddle of mud there. We won that class by quite a bit, but it always makes me laugh when I'm able to slow things down enough to look at something like the ground. Slo-mo brain XD

Painted Desert Ranch

Raising the Dust,
One Horse at a Time

"Legends don't come and go,
they come and impact,
forever leaving hoofprints on our hearts."


Is home to some of the best quality stock horses of all HARPG and other RPGs. We have a lot of stock to chose from and provide a huge variety of bloodlines that are proven in and out of the arena. Our main discipline is barrel racing, and with 25 entries at different shows in it, it has became our strongest event. We also take a lot of pride in our rope horses, with 15 entries in roping.

We were put on the map after our mare Holly(see left) became a Hall of Fame horse(at HARPG-The-WD). She was the first of many, and has become our icon here at the ranch. Holly semi-retired in January 2012, and now is producing the next line of champions.

Our second horse that was accepted as Hall of Fame (again with the WD), is PD Handdown Hancock. A blue roan Quarter Horse stallion. He was the little roan that showed everyone little horses can have big hearts. He is currently finishing 2014 as his last large year of showing, attending only the largest and most prestigious of shows.

My current foundation stud horse that is rising the ranks is PD He's Greek to Me, a 14 year old crazy colored gene bomb of Quarter Horse stallion. Known as "The Cream Ghost" around the barn due to his color, he sticks out in any arena. Keep watch for Willie, his get, and his grandget in the arena :aww: His current total with HARPG-The-WD is around 100 points.

And the Paint mare I've decided to run along side him recently came back home to her birthplace, Kasey from Zephyrra, who was a Top finalist in the HARPG Next Top Horse show, will be joining our ranks. The mare is something special and placing as the highest western horse in the HARPG NTH was a huge accomplishment, and we hope to prove to the world that she is indeed, the next top horse. She's currently over 280 points with the WD and is of Best of the Best ranking :)

We also have PD She's Done Gone, aka Fly, who is my next mare I really wanna work with. After only entering a couple times, she's well on her way to Best of the Best with 50 points. You can't miss her with her gorgeous douple pearl coat.


:pointr: Spanky and Holly's foal, Lou, will have her new owner announced August 26 or 27. This filly will be the highest pointed horse at the WD sold to date, going to her new owner with a expected 200+ points with HARPG-The-WD! Thank you to everyone who entered her sale, expect more foals from Spanky soon as Holly rests in the pasture :aww:
