Jaicee Simmons wouldn’t be able to see through the windshield if he was driving a car, but she did well navigating her horse through the obstacle course as part of the peewee competition at the Rio Blanco County Fairgrounds on Saturday. It took this young lady a little while to navigate her big horse through the course, but she made it.
