Hi all, my friend and I would like to start barrel racing in the next two weeks. I already understand the training that needs to be put in to train a horse to the barrels but I'm always looking for more advice.
I have always worked as a Jillaroo so I'm not a stranger to the saddle or pace, just to the competing. It's an extremely long shot of the horses doing well but we're only doing it for fun.
Would it be bad if we mix the training up? We don't want the horses to get bored so along with the typical trail rides we're also thinking of having a go at jumping too.
Any advice is happily recieved
