If I don't whip her at the canter she'll try to cut the turn instead of taking the extra step around. It has nothing to to with asking for speed. I don't want to get her un the habit of cutting the turn and knocking barrels when I actually do start running her. If I was asking for speed I'd tap her between barrels and at the beginning of the run.

Then you shouldnt be running this horse. She's 3 and you talk about her as if she is a 6 year old that you have been patterning for a few years.

agreed, that is going at YOUR speed not hers. If your "legs just don't do the trick" find somebody who can actually ride her and won't ruin this poor girl before she 15. and yes running her a few ties COULD ruin her her joints and ligaments aren't done goring and she could easily blow one and if that happens she's done. I pity your horse. Don't make an innocent animal suffer because you're impatient.

I'm sorry I want my horse to have a solid canter on the barrels beer fore she starts running? I don't think you guys understand what I'm talking about. I'll get a video tomorrow of her working to show you. I'm not ruining this horse, I'm making her listen at the canter.

She shouldn't be cantering around barrels. You will ruin her joints.

I'm in the "don't run her" bandwagon.. I'm one of those people that thinks you really shouldn't be doing ANYTHING somewhat hard on a horse till they're 4, and introducing whatever more strenuous work to them when they're 5. I know one jumper who, at only 5 years old, has bad arthritis. He's been jumped since before he was 4, which, as has already been said, is just as hard on them as barrels.
