Team Penning

Dreamy and I are officially signed up for a team penning clinic the spring.  Yay!  I am at a point in my life where I am brave enough (or stupid enough...you decide!  LOL!) to try new things.  Much like my saddleseat lesson, team penning has always been something I have wanted to try.  I have always felt too nervous to attempt it, but I decided this year that I might as well give it a shot.  Dreamy might completely freak out and hate cows, but I trust her and feel trying it in a clinic environment will be best.  I am not sure that I will actually do it in competition though.  I don't have a desire to be competitive in any disciplines other than dressage and eventing (and hunter under saddle to a point).  This stuff is just for FUN!!!   And what is the worst thing that will happen?  I will realize team penning is just not for us.  The best thing is that we will have fun and be versatile!  Who knows, maybe I will love it and want to try more of it!  I am certainly open minded!!


Speaking of saddleseat, I have been too busy the past two weekends to take another one.  I am hoping this Sunday might work out for another one!

  1. If you get a horse who LOVES cows, then team penning is SO MUCH FUN! Plus, you can really feel what collection and lightness feels like (I did team penning on big-boned American WB once, and his owner said that was the most collected and lightest she had ever seen him, and he felt amazing). Heck, it's fun just to watch. Try barrel racing too. That's a lot of fun.

    But I agree: I'm not going beyond eventing and dressage as far as competition goes. You can only really devote your efforts to so many things.
