Win A Ride Tour Kicks Off At TSR In Texas
Now in its second season, Body Glove’s 2014 Win A Ride tour kicked off in New Braunfels, Texas on July 21 with Bob Soven at TSR.
13-year-old Kelby Payne purchased a Bob Soven signature vest to be entered into the drawing for his opportunity to Win A Ride and he got a call from TSR with the good news a couple days before the event. As soon as word broke on Instagram, Kelby’s friends were asking if they could join in the fun, and Kelby asked if maybe his younger brother Kyler (8) could come out. @BobSoven immediately chimed into the thread with approval!
The crew started out on the cable lake with a warm up, then both Kelby and Kyler took their turns riding doubles, right alongside the man himself. “Riding with Bob was a once in a lifetime experience,” Kelby said. “He gave me so many tips on style and proper form. He is a great motivator and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone in a safe and fun way.”
Next, the threesome headed over to the boat lake, with Kyler coming out of the gates ripping. Kelby also rode well and attempted front rolls, coming close on his last try. Bob shared some key pointers with the boys as they watched their video clips over lunch at Wahoo’s Fish Tacos.
Shortly afterward, Kelby went home and got back on the horse. “I’m now popping off the wake and landing my front roll,” Kelby said. “I would like to thank Body Glove for their generosity and making it all possible. What an amazing opportunity!”
