Talking I have to brag a little bit... ;)

I'm super proud of my boy! We have raced a total of four times now. Our first race was an epic fail , our second, third, and fourth races were all at the same arena. Our times went from an 18.5 to an 18.0, and then finally, to a 17.2 with room for improvement!! Every single time I watch the video, I cringe. I was definitely NOT riding to the best of my ability! It makes me frustrated... but, hey! We were improving A TON! I'm ready for the next race!!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Congratulations on your success! I am starting training a couple of my horses to barrel race, but we still trot/canter the pattern because we're not good enough to gallop yet. :P You must have so much fun barrel racing with a horse that good!

A 17.2 would have been good enough to win the last 3 barrel events i have seen, with about .4 secs to spare.
If you and your horse have room to improve more, i suspect that you have a possible champion on your hands.
But, what do I know....lol

Thanks!! this just made my day!! I was also racing against Brittany Pozzi and Kay Blandford.. There were others too, but let's not get into that Brittany ran a 15.4? the first day. The second day (I cant remember who won) ran a 15.3, so i was just out of the money. But, i still think my horse did amazing!! Good luck on the pattern Sis and hel!!

Congrats that's great improvement! I have my first barrel race tomorrow with my new horse and first one in 2 years for me! I hope I can improve as much as you did!

That's so awesome!
I know how that feels. People have used my horse in high school rodeos before before I got him. They all said he's a pain in the butt and not slow. Well. Our times have only improved every rodeo. I'm working towards that 16. [:

One year of riding, people are surprised that after a three months of preparing for this, I'm winning with you.
