Lana Kegarise and LCR Gotta Lotta Bucks
16 years old
Figure 8 Flags
I had brushed Buck off calmly in the early morning heat, careful not to let him pick up any tension I may have held in my body. It was my first time showing in many months and I wanted to make sure we had the best chance of placing today. I accidentally left my bouquet of Holly Hocks and White Heather at home. I had spent most of the the night gathering them. In Victorian times, these flowers symbolized ambition and luck - both things I felt I would need today. Looking back, I probably should have gathered some Forget-Me-Nots, which, unironically, symbolize exactly what you would expect Remember Me Forever.
The ride started off well, until the first barrel at least. We rounded the corner a bit too fast and unfortunately knocked the bucket. I was still hopeful we had a chance.
We finished the rest of the round without a hitch. I think we may have even made the time, regardless, I gently led Buck away from the arena. It wasn't worth stressing over. As badly as I'd wanted to place, I knew the more important thing was that Buck and I were both safe. There would be plenty of other shows, but I wouldn't be able to replace Buck. "It's okay, boy. We'll get 'em next time."
We have an exciting update for our present and future hosts! Up until this point, Member Show Hosts have hosted shows to increase their Member Rating and increase the level show they can host (Level 5 - Level 9). Beginning this May, we are doing away with the Member Rating and Progression System.
What does this mean?
Member Show Hosts will all be hosting Level 9 randomized shows.
You still do not have to have experience to host a Member Hosted Show - we welcome new hosts!
We will be taking into consideration your show experience only when it comes to the shows with a significant amount of entries and payouts.
