bareback games

hey everyone,

today at camp we wore shorts the whole time for bareback games. so, we didn't ride with a saddle, only a bridle. my partner for games was lauren today and we almost got never. never always tries to escape, he kicks other horses and bites. so, when we went into never's stall, he ran out fast out into the grass. people were chasing and running after him. but, then the instructors changed our horses. and we got annie. we groomed her and went out into the ring. we were there about 15 minutes before everyone else. we realized that we forgot to fly spray and put sun-screen on annie. so i had to run back and get it. then we realized that we forgot our helmets and water, when i went back stephanie was mad that we forgot them. we knew the first game was the candy contest because we saw candy in the ring when we were there early. so, we had a plan on how to get the candy well. there where only 3 groups (6 people) in our ring. we trotted around the ring bending down trying to get candy. annie was really helpful because she pointed out the candy to us. we won the candy competition with 122 candies. we also won the barrel competition (obstacle course). then we came in second for the command class game. that's where the coaches command something and we have to do it in 3 seconds and if we don't, our partner has to get on. then if our partner has to get off, then we are out. lauren went to graze and groom annie when i went to clean her bridle. i had to put water on it, oil, then soap.
