The actual barrel training for me would remain the same.
Before that begins is what I would change. I'd give him time off to become a horse and then restart him slowly. Making sure that he stays mentally sane and doesnt get into a 'run run run' mentality.
Theres a great book out there I forget the name of about retraining OTTBs as riding horses and plenty of people on here who have done it to talk to you.
