Fall Pairs 

September 26, 2016

Averi and I took the field as a pair team for the fall competition.  We started off a little rough, and Peyote bopped his head up and popped Averi’s thumb at the beginning of our first session.  Of course we played on, doing near standing handoffs and taking it easy on Averi’s thumb.   We did not score well in this session but still played our game.  

Our afternoon session went better, with Averi’s hand lightly braced.  But it was still not enough to make up for our morning and we were placed into the B final for Sunday.  

The final went ok.  Not our best, not our worst.  We enjoyed ourselves and had a good time. I was personally really happy with my mounting.  Although two of the mounts on Saturday were because of sloppy mistakes.  We got Val to come in and coach us towards the end of our session, which always gives me focus.  I think we could have used her sooner.  

Averi is the best to ride with.  She is supportive and fun and does not give up.  Always encouraging, she is a real team player.   It was a fun weekend.  

And let’s talk about the non riding part.  Awesome as always.  Nancy invited Averi and I to camp in her trailer with her which was amazing.  We feel asleep Friday watching a movie.  And Daisy just loved chilling in the AC while we were riding.  Always good conversation the group of us enjoyed Friday and Saturday evenings socializing together in the campgrounds.  Games people are good people.
