I am training a very talented barrel racing horse that will be ready for this season. I have a girl who is experienced with horses and is a good rider, but just doesn't know the technicalities of riding that wants to race him for me. I'm putting this thread up in hopes that I could put everything in one place for her, so she has some knowledge about what I am trying to teach her. Anything from explaining what lead changes are, why they are useful, when you use them in a run, etc... to collection and why it is useful... even just helping her understand how important the bond is between her and the horse. Should be an exciting year for us all. Thanks ahead for all of the help!
