Because my mare gets bored pretty easy she runs better on smaller patterns.
She surprised us all by making a nice pole horse and she like texas barrel the most out of all the barrel events. To much time between barrels she gets bored. She still does well on the bigger patterns just not as "in to it" as she is on shorter patterns. She has also been trained and seasoned on smaller patterns so that could have a lot to do with it as well.
I am hoping with more shows under her belt this will change. I have been showing her since 2009 but all in all it has equaled up to only about 8 months to a year of seasoning because of an injury that put her out for 3 months and another injury that had her out for about 6 or 7 months. I am hoping this year will be her year to step up and show me what she's got. She has so much heart and works hard for me, just has not had the time to get consistent.
(also know the injuries she suffered were not related - first one she ripped her shoulder open, second was a torn tendon she sustained in the pasture somehow. She has been cleared by vets and is 100% sound)
