The Fast Times Cowboys Association has been putting on events for years at the Buckhorn Ranch in West Sunbury, Pa., combining barrel racing and steer wrestling and giving out top-notch year end awards. For Pennsylvania and Ohio barrel racers and steer wrestlers, the Fast Times series is the place to go in the winter. This year, Amber Warren of Newbury, Ohio, took home the 1D barrel racing championship that finished up this past Sunday.
I rode my boyfriend’s horse, Cliff. He’s an own son of War Bar Meyers. He’ll be 14 this year but you sure can’t tell! Cliff got a bad
allergic reaction to something a few weeks ago, so I finished out the last 2 races on Ernie. He’s only been running maybe 8 months now. He’s 5 this year and out of Royal Smash. He is so cool.
Cliff isn’t mine, I kinda stole him from Johnny. Haha. I started running Cliff in August 2009. Johnny is the one who started him and finished him.
Cliff loves his job. He tries his butt off anywhere we go. The footing was always good for the Fast Time series. So that is a plus.
John won quite a bit on him before me. He was reserve in the 1D in IBRA in 2008. So far, Cliff has been really good to me. I feel very lucky to be able to ride him.
