A little late in posting this, but we are trying to recoup from a extremely long trip. 17 hours; each way, driving time pulling a horse is not fun. Actually Patriot was a real trouper. He did excellent the entire trip. Kirstin and Patriot finished in the top ten-Tenth to be exact. They went into the finales on Saturday and placed 9th overall. Patriot decided that Saturday afternoon in front of everyone, he was going to act like a 2 year old. He did not want to stand still or walk-trot was great, even got a lope but not what Kirstin was wanting. So she was not able to do most of her finale's performance, but they did well just the same. Patriot is now back home and happy to be out of a stall. Kirstin will start training him to ride in the near future so keep watching for updates. She now has a job of getting Dyno back to riding. He is a little difficult to ride right now, not enough time spent on his back. But he is well trained and it should not take long to accomplish this.
