​January 13, 2024   - RESULTS - REVISED WITH POINTS INCLUDED 1.15.2024  (If you find any discrepancies, please email me at floridaequineathlete@gmail.com or PM me on Facebook).

        NOTE FROM MELISSA - 

​        Thank you everyone for coming out today. New buckle series members - please read the rules and policies above. Important for EVERYONE:  First, EXHIBITIONS, please be aware that it is ONE at a time in the arena and keep in a forward motion so we can move exhibitions along, in a timely manner.  You can circle one time around the barrels, do not keep circling. No riding around the arena, or working your horse in the arena, while exhibitions are going on. If anyone has concerns with this policy, please come to me. If you are slow working, and coming out of the 3rd barrel, please ride to the fence so next person can start. If running exhibition pattern, let the gate person know so you can run back and the gate person can hold the next person back so you can  finish, coming back in straight line back to gate (hope that makes sense).

Next very important!!! Do not complain to the one working the exhibition gate.  He or She is enforcing the rules that I told him or her.  Please respect this and please remember, we are there to have Fun and have a family atmosphere where everyone can enjoy doing what we love to do. Any type of drama is Prohibited. Leave it at home or at the entrance gate. If leave at entrance gate, pick it up on your way out! We have a fun filled environment where everyone (whether beginner or professional) is friendly, helpful, supportive, etc. 

Third,  thank you to everyone who helped today. I could not have done it without you guys.  Thank you Kathy Dickason, James Dickason, Brooke Bates, everyone who helped set barrels.  Members:  one thing I am changing in the rules (and for this year) is that for tie breakers, I am going to use volunteering and how much is done.  You can get them by helping set barrels, working the exhibition gate; helping me in the office (if I need it. I will announce, if so. Y'all know I usually need to work alone, in the office, because I have a system to get it all done), helping water the alley way and getting other arena prep done, helping me hang banners. Wherever, I need help. Just ask.

Now, for today, please message me, if you helped set barrels. There were a couple I am not sure of who they were.

Oh, and also, for barrel setting, if you cannot set barrels, you can have someone set barrels for you.

Fourth, I will have the points posted up by Wednesday. I have to go through all the paperwork/membership forms and get everyone organized on the list so I know who to give points to.  I will start working on all this Monday.  Well I think that is it for now.  Next buckle series is April 21st; however, the next Melissa's Good Timin Jackpot (it is a jackpot only) is on February 4th.  Hope to see y'all there.


Don't forget to order your photos from Samantha Weeks for that memory keepsake, Wall of Fame, etc. She has been having many problems with FB messenger so she now has a new direct number for gallery requests. It is 1-239-217-1920.
