There was a "Cutting Competition" in Moriarty this past weekend at the Rocking Horse Ranch.
Sponsored by the NM Cutting Horse Association, the competition is held monthly
and my friends from Roswell and Artesia compete.
Riders at the competition are from
NM, OK, TX, AZ and CO...
quite a large and impressive group of riders.
Only a 50 minute drive southwest of Santa Fe,
I went to watch and believe that there will be
championship buckles for my friends at the end of the season!
I took photos of them competing; taken without a flash in an indoor arena
which means I'm processing in RAW .... a daunting project .... that I'll enjoy doing, slowly!
