One young rider is taken through the paces of the barrel race at the Silver Buckle event on Saturday at the Wahkiakum County Fairgrounds.

First I would like to thank all of the riders for coming to our August 7 and September 11 gaming shows. you all did a great job, good rides. We hope to see you on September 25 for show #3.

This year was a bit of a surprise. Last year due to covid, we were unable to run the Silver Buckle Series, so I have not seen our riders in two years. The surprise is that all of our Pee Wee riders (11 years old and under) are now riding in the 12-18 year old age group. To add to the surprise we have had five lead line riders in our shows. The lead line riders are 3-7 years old. They ride the horse while mom or dad run along beside the horse holding the lead line. This is a good start for these young gamers.

Now what you have been waiting for. The results from show #1:

Lead line age group we had River Doumit age 3 and Ava Zurik-Dovan. Both of these little girls did great, no fear and smiling from ear to ear as they rode their horses. Great job girls.

12-18 age group: 1. Ayranna Walters, Long Beach; 2. Adri Cram, Winlock; 3. Bella Norwood, Kalama, 4. Roxy Remmers, Longview.

19-35 age group: 1. Katie Glasson, Long Beach; 2. Kristina Heiner, Cathlamet; 3. Brooke Myers, Longview; 4. Tasha Stratton, Skamokawa.
