How do I train my horse to be a barrel racer?

How do I train my horse to be a barrel racer? She is a 158cm standardbred and can go really fast and do really tight turns so I thought she might be good at barrel racing. I'm new to the western stuff too, so any thoughts would be really helpful. Also, can you ride western in a english saddle? Thanks.

Your probably not going to get a lot of response out of people, this is the 100th thread this week with the same title...we all get tired of repeating ourselves but go check out all the other threads with close to the same title here is a link to the most resent.

Barrel

By the way, it may not he wise to run your standard unless your just going to be doing it for fun......just my opinion but if you want to get into barrels on a competitive stand point I would go with the good ole Quarter Horse.....paints and other stocky breeds do well and some TB and TB/QH crosses turn out nice on the pattern too.
