So I am going to start riding my friends horse for her because she is getting a little to old to hop in the saddle. Now I have been riding for 14 years and I have a lot of experience. But I have NEVER trained my own horse. This horse is 8 years old. She has nice conformation. I want to start her in barrels. I don't know if she has ever done any work in barrels, but considering how popular barrel racing is, I know she has probably done the pattern a time or two. Any tips on training a barrel horse? (I'm not horse term savy, so please dumb it down. Lol) I think she is pretty much good on basic training.
