waving the flag

We are not a particularly patriotic bunch here at the ranch, preferring to do our flag waving during the flag race at our local gymkhana!  This event is really fun:  two barrels topped with sand-filled buckets.  Run up to the first one, holding a flag.  Stab your flag into the sand and grab another flag.

Run to the next barrel, and repeat.  No points for style, but flag waving is encouraged as long as your horse doesn't mind.

The payoff is scoring ribbons - this time we don't mind that they are red, white and blue!  Way to go, cowgirl.
