Haha, that is awesome!

That would be fun to get to race against someone in the arena.

Of course, you need to make sure that the "lefties" race against other "lefties" or you will have a disaster.

Rofl! It could be like that drill team, when someone is circling on the inside and someone else circles the opposite way around them

That looks like a blast!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Yes, but most barrel horses run to the right barrel first, and others to the right. Look up Black River Rodeo 5 drum barrel race

Nope, a majority of barrel racers will take their horses to the right barrel first..There are a good number of horses that do better to the left first though..It's an each individual horse preference.
