Drill that Skill!

July 30, 2015

This weekend we jump back into the Mid-Atlantic Games Series with the third installment, in Mullica Hill, NJ.  One of the members of Gone Rogue had minor surgery a week ago and had to pull out of the competition.  With such short notice this left us with just four riders and ponies instead of our usual five.  Most games teams try to keep a five head count because each race requires four riders and ponies, making it possible to have one rider pony combo to sit out.  Its nice to get a mini break, but more importantly, it allows the team to sit out their weakest rider in each race.

Poe and I are pretty much good to go in any race.  Particularly since we are now outfitted in a saddle that does not roll around.  Although over the past two years bottle shuttle has become my nemesis.    Knowing I’ll have to be in this race which is being run twice throughout the competition, I spent last night’s riding session drilling the crap out of it.  I placed, I picked, I placed, I picked, back and forth.

I was working on my bottle placement on the middle barrel for positions one or three when my husband came out.  Having this spiffy new iPhone 6 with the new “slo-mo” video feature, he agreed to record my placement.

I have to say, this is a pretty bad ass feature on the iPhone 6.  I cant wait to try it out this weekend.

(well sorry, I can’t seem to figure out how to get it to come up in slo-mo.  Which was the whole coolness of this post.  lame)
