  1. Trends

    Just kind of a fun topic I guess... what are some of the trends going on in your area regarding the barrel racing world, or just horse world in general? I've noticed more and more people using "Belt Headstalls"... seems to be a new thing... well new to me at least. I personally don't like the look, but hey, to each their own I guess.
  2. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    It's been forever and a day since I've been on HorseCity.... doesn't look like it's changed much As for me, lots of big changes have happened... but the horses are doing well. What would the point of this post be without pictures, right?! (let me know if they work.. pulling them off Facebook..) Start off with Cowboy... he has been pretty much a pasture pet lately due to work... but I hopped on him when he had about 5 months off, and we rode around the property like he hadn't missed a day. He is a pretty special horse. Had to have a photoshoot of course.... As for Shorty, I haven't been riding him much either. Just rope off and on... we made it to the Ellensburg Rodeo again this year.. placed 4th. The horses and I picked up and moved recently... so I am boarding them now, which sucks.. haven't done that in forever. They are typical brothers...
  3. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    Thank you! I am pretty excited! :)
  4. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    All of these were all taken with an iPhone But I am acquiring a new Nikon camera, so better pictures will coming soon! :) I LOVED being a Deputy and loved working for the county. It's going to be an adjustment coming to a PD. Different kind of people and calls. But this is a great agency and I know they will train me well. Hey 440, no those pics were in the Thorp area, towards Elk Heights. And I've been hired by Richland. But I do have friends at Yakima PD.. what's your license plate number? ;) haha

    No I think there has been like 3 or 4 episodes now.
  6. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    Thanks PD - I appreciate that! I've been a Reserve Deputy Sheriff for the past year now, so I finally decided this is what I wanted to do in life... and surprisingly enough, my very first oral board I placed 1st out of 30 people and they hired me very quickly. I am with a great department and will be sent off to Police Academy in a couple months... It's going to be a very challenging year ahead of me, but also very rewarding. Unfortunately, the horses won't be getting much of my time, especially once I'm in Academy- due to it being 5 months long. But once I get into a routine, I think I will be able to integrate back into the horse world again.

    Patterns vary. It's really hard to say. I'm not too familiar with the arenas in CA and AZ... but the Sisters rodeo seemed accurate... I'm hoping they show them going to Walla Walla, Kennewick, Ellensburg, or Pendleton. Places I'm a bit more familiar with! And maybe I'll be in the background of the Ellensburg one LOL But like others mentioned, I do wish they showed more genuine down time with their horses.. there is so much prep that goes into rodeoing. Horse people would like to see that when watching the show, but I don't think it has the spark for the none horse people unfortunately.
  8. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    Ain't that the truth!
  9. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    haha I know right! My mom spoils the heck out of him. I do feel bad as he does not have the 30 acres that I had back in Ellensburg to run around on... he is now bound to a leash on a golf course But it is only temporary! And thank you. It has been a crazy ride.. and it has only just begun!
  10. Hello, Hello..... Pictures!

    Cinch is doing great as well!! Since I have moved back in with my parents, he has a lot of down time... But the big news is...... I have been sworn in as a full time police officer! So that has been my past 6 months in a nut shell! How is everyone else?! :)
  11. Rodeo Girls

    Jessica Holmberg. Yeah some of the pity fights they have are ridiculous. Too ridiculous to be real. And quite honestly, the rodeo community is not like that. The rodeo community is very helpful and someone will always offer to lend a hand or help out another. You see more of that kind of cattiness at barrel races... which is a totally different environment than a rodeo.
  12. Rodeo Girls

    I like the show... It helps I know one of the girls in it. I did college and amateur rodeo with her. The show is not very accurate, as most people already know. Lots of added drama for TV of course. But yes, a lot of barrel racers dress up if they made it into a perf at a rodeo. Nothing wrong with it as long as they can still function.
  13. Cop Shoots Dog

    Last to the party on this one... but.... It was a justified shot.
  14. My Old Man Has Still Got It! Pictures Of The Ben

    LOVE the last two pictures!! You guys are both looking great!!
  15. 5 Star Saddle Pads?

    Thanks GreenHaven! He is a great little horse, but unfortunately, he knows he is good lookin too
  16. 5 Star Saddle Pads?

    I have a 5 Star, the 7/8" one. Never has it slipped. Its a great pad!! I got a very thin wool pad to put under it to help the longevity of my 5 star though. Great combo! Hard to say what yours could be... saddle fit??
  17. Catahoula Puppies :) *update 5/23 On Post 41*

    AWWW! I love Catahoulas!! Some great coloring in your litter! Congrats!!
  18. Concealed Carry

    Anyone here carry concealed? What do you carry? Why did you choose that to carry? What kind of holster do you have? I'm looking at getting a Smith&Wesson M&P Shield 9mm (if I can ever find it in stock somewhere!). I have a M&P .40 as my duty gun, and I like it. Just wayyy too big to carry concealed.
  19. Concealed Carry

  20. Concealed Carry

    I want to say it's a State imposed restriction. Good question though. You can conceal when you are on duty (back up gun obviously), but when you are off duty that's when your commission ends or something. Regardless, I'm not too worried about it as I already have my CPL.
  21. Concealed Carry

    No classes here, but if you are law enforcement, you don't need a CPL to carry concealed. I'm only a Reserve Deputy so there are restrictions to that. I'll have to check those holsters out, thanks! Yeah I love my M&P .40! I thought about just getting the M&P sub-compact .40 just so I can use the same mags and ammo, but it's still pretty big. I'd still like to get my hands on a Shield though. 9mm is still good and holds more. They are suppose to be pretty comparable in size with the XDS. This is my M&P. Taped the dang thing up quite a bit cause it was jumpin around in my hand quite a bit during range week.
  22. Concealed Carry

    I already have my CPL. I did it last year way before this big hoopla. And for my county, I AM the one that process's them LOL I do the fingerprinting, background checks, issuing, etc. But it's been crazy for my small county. In January we did 300. And thats just our office. Doesn't include the 2 other offices that you get it done at (city offices). So it's been my full time job lately. I like those Springfields. I was looking at getting a XDS actually, but I really want them to make it in a 9mm instead of just the .45ACP. Too much bark for my liking. My Sgt is trying to convince me to get a Ruger LCP 9mm but I'm just not a fan of how it looks. Once he gets his, I'll shoot it and see how it feels.
  23. I Just Don't Really Care...

    Yeah, neither do black people and women.
  24. Someone Vandalized My Car!

    Oh shoot, that was your car? My bad! lol just kidding. But seriously, that really sucks. Hopefully there is no permanent damage. I doubt law enforcement would of been able to get any prints off the vehicle, and I doubt they will find the suspect, unless she hits again. Maybe put up a Game Camera in your car port(?) incase she does come back.
