Barrel Racing DVDs - Senior Project, Help?

Soooo I want to do my senior project (Our school calls them EAs now, hell if I even know what that stands for) on barrel racing. I want to make a training DVD set. I want to do it this summer when I have lots of training time, I have a good camera and I'm going to get a friend to record me.

My big question here is going to be about structuring the DVDs. I have Ruger who is a green horse (And he will still be green in the summer), Bailey who will act as the "finished" horse, and Selena would be an in-between. I want to know how to structure the topics. I don't need to use all of the horses in the DVDs but I'd like to.

How would you set these up? For example, here are the topics I want to touch on:

1) Green Horses & Starting on the pattern (Including the necessary "buttons")
2) Building up speed & when to add speed
3) Approach, Rate, and Position
4) Drills & Exercises
5) Common Problems & How to fix them
6) Tack & Equipment (Will sort of be an intro, including bits)

I want to add as much as I can in there for them but that's the basic idea (If you have something you think I should add in, let me know, I'm kind of scatterbrained so I want to be as organized as possible before I start) and also, ordering them? I didn't really put them in any particular order above so feel free to tell me what order you think they should go in.

Thanks <3

My "line up" was the same as QHriderKE. That seems like the best way to lay the order out and have it make sense to people who don't ride.

Thank guys! (And Mango, I totally can do that. LOL My Mom keeps buying blank DVDs thinking they are blank CDs, so I have a box full of the things )

So here's my next question, on the "common problems" part, what do you guys think I should put in there, here's what I have so far:

- Gate Problems
- Hot horses
- Shouldering barrels
- Blowing/Dropping Shoulder
- Blowing Hip
- Running up the fence

Bring on anymore ideas :) I appreciate the help with brainstorming :)

Maybe add one, like how to get into bigger barrel races etc. Like qualifying for big rodeos/shows.
