Getting tired could be it, between warm up and working the pattern im on him for about 45 mins.
When I'm not doing barrel work on the other days we do a LOT of trotting/jogging straightaway and in small circles, practice rollbacks, I'll take him into our outside arena and trot over logs and railroad strips that have been set up, walk him between obsticals. I mainly focus on trotting in circles and keeping his lope consistent though and then to cool down we go walk the property. I just want to be clear I don't do all of these things every time I ride. I try to change it up and keep his mind constantly working. Sometimes I stick to just walk, trot, lope, and stopping at all speeds, then another day we will work in the outside obstical area, but for the past few weeks we have ended with the cool down walk over the property.
