Barrel racer

Faye and I attended the Brigden Fall Fair today. We stopped for a time to watch the barrel racing competition.

I’ve been fascinated with barrel racing for years and this is the first time to see it live. It’s a sprint all the way but don’t knock a barrel over as you round it! This contestant rounds #3 at the end of the arena and heads for the line.

Brigden Fall Fair

This fair is a long-time standard of fall events in southwest Ontario. It’s on Thanksgiving weekend. Faye and I went this year.

It was a lovely, crisp morning. We were there before most of the crowds turned up. I’. post a series of photos.

Quilts and quilting are a staple of fairs and we toured the barn hosting the quilts entered in the judging contest. This wall hanging caught my eye.
