Squiggy's 2nd Jackpot!

I'm taking her just for the experience, not really competing, I just pay my $30 and let her cruise, but holy smokes she likes it!

I she came out of that first barrel really wide, same with second a bit.

BUT HOLY CRAPOLIES. Do you see potential? Cause I see potential.

Also, do you like my barrel racing in a rope saddle? My barrel saddle was on a different horse, I had to improvise.

It was pretty dark to really tell much....isn't a roping saddle much heavier than a barrel racing saddle? But for just practicing it should be fine.

My rope saddle weighs a ton, but it's all I have and she's used to it, she gets rode in it often.

I think y'all look great for his second one!(:
I run in a roping saddle (only saddle I have, multipurpose ftw? Lol), and I haven't seen any difference in times from when I use someone else's barrel saddle as opposed to my roper. My roper is a good 40lbs, but I haven't seen it effect the 2 horses I've ran in it.

Yeah, I've been riding in rope saddles until last year when I got my barrel saddle. Once you run in a barrel saddle, running in a rope saddle is never the same. They aren't quite as stick, gotta work a little harder to keep yourself where you're supposed to be, I find.
Darn barrel saddle has spoiled me!

The barrels saddles I've used, I've always been a little iffy with. While the seats are generally a lot squishier/comfier..I couldn't ride in them all day like I could a roping saddle. I think I'd be switching saddles around all day at a show if I had one, haha.

Yeah, I see potential! She looks really good and it looks like the only reason she came out a little wide on the first is because she wanted to turn on top of the barrel but you corrected her.(:

I gave my critique on your other thread. I won't repeat myself. The same things apply. I'd really work hard on fixing them NOW, because the more you practice doing the wrong things, the harder it is going to be to do the right things. Only perfect practice makes perfect. Go back down to a trot, if you need to.

My old barrel horse Beau is a perfect example. When I trained him for barrels, I trained him wrong. I made him take his barrels way too tight. Thus causing him to slow way down in his turns, and actually turn too soon and anticipate. It took YEARS to fix completely. And I always had to stay on top of it thereafter.

I sure seem some potential in Squiggy (there's a gas pedal there!!! And sure seems like she likes it ) but I'd fix these little things first in order to eventually bring out that true potential!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
