These are pictures from the Colt Starting Challenge held in Granite Falls, WA.   The horse I drew for the
challenge was a pure white (Camarillo) Horse, with two blue eyes named Opal. I did everything I could
to prepare Opal mentally and I couldn't of been more proud of her when we ran the obstacle course. For
a horse with only 3 1/2 hours of training, I felt we where working together as a team.  She never showed
any fear, I never had to get after her to speed up, and she set the brakes to stop every time I asked.  Opal
came out a winner and will make a wonderful horse for anyone lucky enough to owner her.
