Cassidy came out last night to ready Sweetness, her five-year old mare, for a few runs in the Tri-State Classic Barrel Race in Craig, Colorado this coming weekend. Sweetness, a beautiful sorrel mare, is early in her barrel-horse training. Cassidy is working with her to learn to approach the barrel with discipline. Sweetness has a tendency to become quite anxious around the barrel, so Cass will take the barrel events at a high lope this weekend, encouraging her to be comfortable and sure in a new setting and at an event Sweetness is still working toward mastering.
