The issue is on the run home, she starts slowing well before the timer. Causing us to have a slower time. I carry a crop with me, it's one that makes a lot of noise as opposed to hurting.
The past 3 shows, we've ran 20.4/20.5/20.6 barrel times. Last night, she ran a 21.6 and the pattern felt really good. When I was rounding the 3rd barrel, I looked up at seen 14 seconds on the time clock. And it does NOT take 7 seconds to run home! More like 4.5-5 seconds. I should have had a 19 at least but she just shuts down on me.
Does anyone have any tips for me? Maybe try an over/under to get after her on both sides as opposed to just the right side? (side I carry the popper crop on)
She's been running for 10 years, knows the patterns and she loves to run. She's completely sound, sane and healthy. Nothing is hurting her.
