A few years ago, (maybe 4, or 5 years ago,) I attended a horsemanship clinic at Cottonwood Creek Equestrian Center, in Cottonwood (close to Red Bluff.) By chance I happened to be seated next to this lady. We were both attending the clinic as audience, and while the trainer worked with the participants, we had plenty of time to talk. I quickly discovered that this lady new more about horses than anyone I ever met (I’ve bee around horses all my life.) She invited me to her ranch, and I did visit her there a few weeks later. I watched her work with some students that she had. I was very impressed by her horsemanship skills. I took some pictures of her and her friends at a breast cancer awareness event that same year. I haven’t seen her since then, and I was so happy when I saw her at the parade last weekend.
A colorful part of the parade 🙂
Isn’t she absolutely beautiful, Miss Redding Rodeo?
Our local search and rescue team was represented by these two handlers, and their dogs.
Growing up I wanted to be a part of the mounted patrol. That is one of the few things that I really wanted, that I never even gave a try. Don’t ask me why. I’d say that I’ve done pretty much everything else that I dreamed of as a little girl.
Impressive horses those Clydesdales, don’t you think?
I hope you enjoyed the parade 🙂 The photos from the actual rodeo are still on my camera. I’ll start going through those tomorrow. It was a weekend full of fun, and good times. It always is at Red Bluff Round-Up.
