You never know. It's possible. You'll get out of barrel racing whatever you put into it. It's hard to climb the ranks, but if you work for it, you will.

The absolute best advice I can give you is to ALWAYS put your horse first. If you don't have a horse to ride, what do you have?

Like RedHorse mentioned,life is not fair. It doesn't mean that you will never improve cause I believe if anyone takes something serious there is always room for improvement. Jealousy is evil.It makes a person self-centered and bitter. Everyone is guilty of it at some parts of their life. I know I am but be happy you even have a horse cause most people don't.
I am not jealous of something I can't get, I just don't like when girls that have barely ever ridden say their going to barrel race, then if they do they ruin their horse. How is that jealousy? I'm very happy with the horses I have. Their the best things that ever happened to me.

Or people that read info on various forums and automatically think they know how to train. Like I've said before....nothing beats hands on experience. People think they can be whoever they want on the internet

Im not naming any names.

I know how it feels.
In the long run, she has two problems you don't have: First, she doesn't have the stick-to-itivity that you developed by working hard. She's spoiled and eventually it'll be on to the next thing.

Second, you've developed some experience at training your horse when there's a problem or your horse starts developing bad habits, you should have an idea either how to work through it or who to ask for advice. She doesn't have that on her side, either. If her horse develops bad habits, it's just going to drive her away.

There's a reason some cowgirls (Sherry Cervi, Angie Meadors, Charmayne James, Brittany Pozzi, Jill Moody) get back to the NFR year after year and others (the list is long, but undistinguished) show up a time or two than disappear. The former group is made of excellent and expert horsewomen; the latter group is ... well ... undistinguished folks who got a lucky horse. A couple of those barrel racers even won a WPRA championship or two ... then their lucky horse got old and lost a step and then they were gone.

Be a good horsewoman. Figure out what makes a good horse it's more than speed, and if you don't believe me check out Lindsay's horse Martha or Sherry's horses Stingray and Dinero (and Dinero is also one heckuva roping horse).

Those other girls will fall away eventually ... and there you are.

Well as you all know I just started getting into it. I have been trying to find something for my horse and I that we can be good at eventually. My horse gets bored easily so I am always switching it up but she never seems to be bored with gymkhana and barrels. I don't know everything. That's why I am going to a trainer this spring/summer. But I am going to events that are for fun so we can get experience. I want to become something when it comes to riding and my horse will show me the ropes. I didn't want to do any gaming before but it has slowly caught my interest and now I love it :) Just stay positive and it will eventually all come together. Determination is a big thing.
