Competing with rodeo waves
We’re in the Horse Arena, which is surprisingly cooler than it is outside. The third contestant in the Horsemanship portion of the Fair Court competition is doing some figure 8s with admirable control. She’s already calmly trotted by a parade spectator with a large umbrella and a person holding balloons.
After her figure 8s, Contestant #3 will carry a flag like they do in rodeos. Then my favorite part — she will ride super fast around the arena doing that turbo hand wavy thing that I’m thinking is a lot harder than it looks.
Contestant #3 looks really confident on her horse and every time she has ridden by the grandstands, she’s been smiling big. The competition is heating up!
