Winter Series 2018 Points This is a buckle series and we give points 1 thru 10 to all participates that pay a one time buckle fee of $10 to go towards the buckle or buckles.  Due to the fact it is winter and we are a outdoor arena, weather cancellations are very high.  We will be giving a buckle to the high point rider and horse combination total for all the races.  If we are able to have several races we will consider awarding a Reserve buckle also.  Awards will be given to the winners of each D at the end of the series also.  You can pay your buckle fee anytime in the series to start receiving points.  We have 9 double header barrel races scheduled for a total of 18.  You must compete in 12 to qualify for awards.  For every race we have to cancel and don’t reschedule we will deduct 2 races from the qualifying number for awards.

Always call or check the Tanner Time Training Center Facebook page or Web site  if weather is questionable.   You can also text 719-469-3949

Firewater’s Faith Winning SCBRA Horse with Most Heart and SECCC Year End 1-D saddle

Firewater’s Faith went out on top.  Her death came as a sock to many.  But her memory will live on for years to come.  Faith and I ended up 6th over all in the Open competition for SCBRA and once again she was voted “Horse With The Most Heart” by the SCBRA members.  Faith won this prestigious award the year she won the SCBRA Novice horse in 2013.  Her first year in competition.  So need less to say this was a overwhelming surprise to Shane and I at the awards dinner.   That the members felt she should be honored with the award again for 2017, her last year on earth.  Thank you SCBRA members for your love of Faith and I.   For full year-end results for SCBRA you can go to: “Southern Colorado Barrel Racing Assoc.”  Facebook page.

Firewaters Faith 2008-2017

Faith and I won the year end 1-D saddle for SECCC.  She went into the lead in August and was able to hold on to it even after her death. Winning three barrel races in a row in August gave her a huge lead.  Faith always wanted to prove she was the best but I was not always able to ride her to the best of her potential. I look forward to riding her in heaven where I will be able to ride her to her full potential.  Faith won the 1-D saddle for SECCC three years in a row starting with  2015.  She was a winner and a champion in many different arenas and I did enjoy the ride and the places she took Shane and I in a few short years.

Buckle Series Final Race Results

We had great weather Sunday for our last race even if the arena ground was still a little wet.  We made a smaller pattern to try to stay out of the mud but the ground was still pretty heavy.  Cindy Thompson made a great run with a 16.307 as our last runner of the day.  Thanks everyone for attending our races.  We will be looking at the calendar through out the year and if we see any free dates for a barrel race we will schedule something.   We gave away beautiful hand crafted by Bob Fulton.
