Blessi Runs the Barrels for the First Time

Jessy has been teaching Blessi to neck rein.  To further advance the training, Jessy barrel raced Blessi at the local saddle club.  I have always walked the barrels with Blessi.  As for out times, let's just say that the mother leading her child on a lead line beat our times.

With Jessy,  Blessi's lowest time was 28 seconds--not nearly fast enough to win the jackpot but not bad for an 18-year old horse.
You can also see the plantation style saddle that was custom made to fit Blessi.  Unfortunately, all off-the- shelf Western saddles that I tried on Blessi were too narrow for this boulder shoulders.  His gullet measurement is 8.5 inches.
