Barrel Racing Is NOT Easy ^.^

I get soo sick of seeing all these girls saying that they are going to do barrel racing, half of them have never ridden and they think it will be easy! This isn't directed to anyone on this site, not that I've seen so far, its just all the time I hear girls wanting to outdo me by doing barrels and junk. Its not as easy as they think and it definitely is not made for show offs.
If this even made sense lol.

Seems easy enough that girls that can't even ride go to finals and such...
Bam, girl takes 5 riding lessons, maybe a barrel clinic, parents give her big expensive horse, and you got a barrel racer. That's how it seems to work..:/

Well that's because they are able to hold on long enough to run the barrels, its the horse doing all the work.

^^ I think I know what she's gettin at. I started from scratch with my pony and we improved and learned together - we taught eachother. It took FOREVER to get where we are now in barrels, and it annoys the heck out of me when a girl who's parents had the extreme dough to buy her a top notch, already perfectly trained barrel horse so she can sit on it and let it do all the work, while I'm here on my little horse practicing my a$$ off just to get second to her . I know how it feels.

Joe, you need to come down to Texas and stir the pot down here. We have a few pot stirrers and one more is always welcome!!! cousin's hubby is always stirring it up and he makes me laugh like crazy!

I wanted to run barrels as a teen and my dad wouldn't let I would fall off on the first barrel whether I had a highly trained horse or not!

Oddly that's not what ever really gets me. Its the poeple that try for forever and fail, get all kinds of good advice and just keep on failing. When there's so many barrel trainers around here and people to get lessons from, makes me confused.

As for the parents buying already trained horse. I normally advise people to buy a finished horse when starting, its easier. My mare is being bought buy a girl getting into it, she's finished and will teach her well. If I ever got into another discipline I will buy myself a horse trained for it already to start. Other wise it always made me annoyed to be passed up by people who just got into it on their nice 1D horses just bought, my mom couldn't afford me a 1D horse and my mare never could cut it, she is a 2D horse. So long hard work and now I have my prospect im training myself with my moms help of course.
