Nothing wrong with a horse needing a chiropractor I have mine checked over a few times a year. Sports can make any horse sore or out of place from time to time it doesn't mean your a bad rider necessarily. We ask our barrel horses to do a lot and I like to make sure they are happy and pain free while doing so. Also congrats on getting first place just keeping practicing. Figuring out the correct pocket takes a lot of time to learn and you are still young. If you have a more experienced friend perhaps they could give you lessons on where to put your horse and your focus.
