My friend last night, who runs 50000 doller horses told me to put a 2nd barrel on the outside of the 1st it creats something for the horse to look at so he has to go wider.

I would refrain from practicing on grass until your arena or area is disked up. It's not safe and horses learn to compensate which creates bad habits.

Always do slow work with larger pockets. In wide out close.

I could understand if he was running but walking and trotting? That's silly I take him to friends places all the time with dirt

Your horse....I saw him lope in the video?
Eh, take it or leave it. I wouldn't even trot extensively on grass

So you wouldn't run your horse on a trail? Our rodeos here don't even give you a chance to work urhorse in rhe dirt they leave a grass spot

Nope I sure wouldn't. I have too much money invested to risk an injury on a trail....besides my horses run a barrel pattern....not down a trail.

Have you ever gotten shin splints from lots of running on hard ground?
Same principle....hard ground puts alot more concussion on joints.


I used to practice my rodeo horse in shallow dirt to change it up bc he'd encounter it at rodeos....but that's it

So, is it bad that I chase cows with my roping and barrel horses? They get run, stopped and turned hard on all kinds of footing, and they've never come up sore.

But then again, my barrel horses and rope horses are ranch horses before anything else. They can all go to a branding and drag calves, or I could, if need be, rope a cow off of the and I have no worries about crippling them.
But whatever.
