"Barrel racing gone wrong"

I don't barrel race, just a few times when I was younger. But cruising youtube and I found this video and thought some other horsie people might enjoy watching it also. A lot of those falls made me cringe, that's scary footing to make that happen.

That would be terrifying to have you horse go down when turning barrels I'm glad thats never happened to me. That must have been poor dirt to have that happen so much. Also a lot of balance issues on some of those rider's caused those falls. Makes me cringe watching those people fall.

I don't even watch those videos anymore..it just makes me mad because people who don't barrel race or know the sport assume it's just crazy barrel horses when I can guarantee 90% of the "crashes" are caused by the rider. Even if it's so much as making sure your horse is comfortable, ill fitting tack, nerves, and/or every type of rider error in the saddle.

^^^Poor horse indeed. I can't imagine getting kicked as hard as possible with those huge spurs that are clearly going to come down on him.

Spurs are for lateral movement only. Not for kicking.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
