    I guess I just do not get what you are doing here?

    IMHO...the point of doing drills is to do them the correct way.
    I see a horse that knows how to turn a barrel but not correctly.
    You need to keep her but in the barrel and round her not allow her to go into the turn at an angle...also need to work on get her but under her in her turns...this will save you a lot of time and prevent her from flinging her back end out of the turns and blowing them.....I also noticed your hand position..try keeping your hands a little lower and pick her up more instead of pulling her over

    Also in ref to this: "She was having day... first time seeing the barrels in a few months."

    I do not get what you mean by "She was having day...", I am assuming you mean she was not working right for you but in all honesty she was doing exactly what you were asking/telling her to do.
    Also, if this was the first she has seen barrels in a while then why start out at a lope? She needs more slow work for sure (not saying she is a crappy horse) but by doing what I watched above you are just going to make her sour and cause her to pick up bad habits.
    (I do not mean this to come off mean nor to I claim to know it all or to be perfect myself)

    By having a day, I meant earlier, she was a knot-head, tried all kinds of funky stuff when I was warming up.

    She's a heading horse through and through, and we just play around on barrels for something to do (she is not a horse you take on a leisurely ride...) and maybe enter in a fun day for the heck of it, and not do too bad!

    Thanks though, she was pretty much coasting through it by herself, with only a little bit of help from me. I did w/t the pattern earlier, it's not on the video.

    Ok...playing or not it should be done correctly.
