This year at the Western Heritage Classic Avery participated in the stick horse rodeo. She has been waiting on this event to roll back around since this time last year. She loves participating!!
She won 2nd place in the stick horse barrel racing and here is her prize jacket!

The boot race
Here they go
Ready to run
Pile of boots - for those of you who are unfamiliar with a boot race. Each contestant takes off one of their own boots and puts in in the pile. On "go" all contestants run to the pile and attempt to find their boot. The first person across the line with the correct boot on wins. It is always a laugh.
