Hi.(: I am new to the horse forum! I have 2 barrel horses(:
1. Scratch - a 4 year old Solid foundation bred paint. She has been doing barrels for 4 months now and I put all the training on her!
2. Scratch - a 11 year old FL cracker horse/Paint! She a past history of abuse and neglect and I have owned her for almost 2 Years now! She is getting better and better.
So my first question is , I was thinking about using a tiedown on scratch (4 year old) just for slow work off the pattern. I'm not really a big fan of tie downs and I normally don't use them unless needed. She breaks at her poll just not all the time. Opinions on this?
Second Queston . Are there any good drills for horses who anticipate?
