Susan and Lily in Jousting Games[PICTURES]
A lot of horseback riders buy the horse already trained to compete in events like Ranch Horse, Halter Horse, Hunter Jumper, etc. I on the other hand have a horse who has become my kindred spirit over the past 12 years we've been 'together'.
We are trained in nothing in particular, but love to have new adventures. We competed in the Jousting Games in Estes Park this past weekend. This was part of the hugely successful Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival. Lily and I competed in the U.S./International Jousting Championships at the Fairgrounds Arena. We were 15th out of 16 riders. I am so proud of my horse and a bit pleased with me.
