This year I watched the NFR barrel racing every day without fail. I was entranced by every single run and could hardly contain my excitement each time I watched it. Those girls and horses are beyond talented and I can only hope to be even half as talented as they are some day.
As I reflect on the NFR barrel racing this year I couldn’t help but notice that there are some things that I have realized after watching it. Beyond the fact that those horses are incredible and those girls are talented riders, there were some additional realizations that I made this year that I think would be of value to those of you who also take part in the sport.
