Joanne Rooke riding Smart Lil Ray score 134 for this ride Saturday at Heritage Park.

 

orses and riders compete at Heritage Park Saturday. The horse bolts out of the gate past the judges and then digs in coming to a sliding stop. Next they do four fast spins, three circles and a couple of figure 8's then some other maneuvers to show the horse's agility. The rider then dismounts and drops the bridle for the judge who checks out the horse.

 

The championship continues Sunday. For more information visit: www.wcra.info
