I have learned over time its not the pattern your horse needs to learn, its how to turn properly. I no longer train my barrel horses on the pattern, I just teach them how to correctly respond to my cues and how and where to place their bodies. I only run the patterns at shows or away from home. I will go practice at some local arenas just to season them.
