what do you mean how long have I hauled Gidget before running her?
I do not have a current video other than the one I'm playing around with and she was calm.
Tonight we hauled her over to the arena and practiced. She actually did a lot better. I was able to walk,trot,and canter in the arena and not freaking out because she thinks she needs to run the barrels. I also trotted her around them,walked around then,and ran them...She listened. She did get hot a few times but nothing serious. I just turned her around,did some circles and it calmed her down.
Everyone I know walks into the arena and then takes off orr they trot in and do a big circle to get on the right lead and then go. It's like that at a lot of local places and these horses also do shows and not just gaming so they are completely functional in the arena.
I was given some tips today.I met a friend who takes barrel lessons and she helped me.
I'm doing it for fun...not really doing it to win..if I do then that is AWESOME! But I know I won't..not yet...I will shock myself if we get a good time.
I am only feeding her alfalfa pellets and she is on pasture. I gave her less today since I only need it to add supplements to it. Rice bran isn't the best for them in the long run and again I have to keep it pretty simple.
