....i was going to say that but she didn't ask for any comments like that.It's something that ppl need to hear though so they don't get themselves hurt or their horse hurt or turn into a raging maniac....
Maybe work on conditioning her without the barrels as well. This will help her.
I know with Gidget she gets super hyper when she sees barrels set up so maybe you should work on trotting and cutting the arena in half,roll backs,cantering..lots of little exercises.Set up some cones and work on directing your horse in a straight line and turning...try it at a walk,trot,and canter...it sounds easy but really hard. My trainer set them up as a 12x12 ft box and she makes me walk around them.
