North Texas rides again at BRAT Barrel race and it was buzzing with riders eager to get back to being Texan. The Barrel Racing Association of Texas was kicking up dirt for its Mother's Day event in North Texas. Hundreds of riders were trying their best to keep some distance from barrels as they returned to the arena to battle for cash and bragging rights.
Although this Texas tradition can be filled with serious competition, its more like a get together with friends and family to ride horses and have fun. Winning buckles and money is nice but its the laughs and good times is all we ever remember. So it was nice to see so many riders come out and take part in this run for the money at Shepherds Valley arena in Alvarado.

Our pic of the day comes from our past event at the Star N Ranch where one hundred and sixty-two racers came together to see who was the fastest of them all. This little rider showed no fear while going for it all. Certainly, she's putting in the work today to kick everybody's butt tomorrow.

These girls are great competitors but admit that they don't have a family rivalry, instead they support one another in the arena as they push for each other and root for "Team Mcleod." As much fun as it is to win, these girls understand that its more fun to have fun.
The biggest surprise came when they told us all that their favorite pizza was "Cheese!" What? I know, I couldn't believe it either. But, it goes to show that you don't need everything when you've already got it all.
Of course the girls couldn't leave us without sharing that imagehounds are their favorite photographers. That goes without saying, but was nice of them to say it.
Photographing these rising stars is the highlight of every playday. Way to go Alexandra!
