Texan Shank Edwards Prepares for 2018 CINCH Timed Event Championship
KG: What horses are you going to be riding?
SE: I’m going to take Einstein to heel on and a horse named CD to head on. I’ll rope calves on Barney. CT to steer rope on and Lizard to bull dog on.
KG: Which event is your worst?
SE: It would be the bull dogging—absolutely.
KG: Have you had any wrecks?
SE: No, I haven’t, luckily.
KG: Who is going to be helping you?
SE: Dakota Kirchenschlager will be helping me.
KG: What do you do to prepare for this event?
SE: Yes, I mentally try to practice the events that I don’t do every day. I have been really trying to work on the bull dogging more than usual.
KG: Do you have a really memorable year from the CTEC?
SE: Not any one in particular. It’s just a fun place to be able to go do all the events because you really don’t have a chance to do it anywhere else.
KG: Is there any advice you would give to the Jr. Ironman Contestants?
SE: Just don’t get in a rush. Just go out and try to accomplish all of the events and don’t hurry in one of them.
