The weather was definitely not in our favor as the Bloomer Equestrian Team had their second meet of the season at Wild Bill’s Saddle Club Arena in Elk Mound on Saturday, Oct. 5. Everyone grinned and suited up in rain gear in an attempt to stay somewhat dry. The event was eventually canceled and next Saturday, Oct. 12, the event at Double D Arena in Mondovi will be a double points event for a majority of the patterns, meaning each rider will be essentially judged twice. The equestrian season is so short that this is the only way to secure points for the upcoming state meet in Madison at the end of October. We did, however, manage to get in some soggy halter class events. Riding for Bloomer in these events were Gracie Culver, Frederick Blair, Emily LaGesse, Jessica LaGesse, Dylan Michels, Illa Nelson and Lauren Ruff.
