8 X 10 Oil on Canvas $100
This is one of my teen horse back riding friends. She saved up her own money to purchase this horse and now she's teaching him to carry a flag so she can ride him in the Grand Entry at local rodeos. Most rodeos have a tradition of beginning every competition with a Grand Entry - all the riders that are participating in that day's events ride in a two long winding lines each led by a rider carrying a flag - a US flag and a Texas flag. The lines weave around the arena and sometimes even cross one another - it can get quite elaborate. The lead rider has to have a competent horse that will allow his rider to carry the huge, flapping, flag and well as tolerate a bunch of riders following directly behind. This horse still isn't sure of what's being asked of him (see his ears?), but he trusts his rider and I believe will be just fine.

Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men."
