I am gonna lay it down for ya......your horse needs foundation work. He needs to go back to basic bending, flexing, tracking, working. The Tie-Down is NOT helping him balance. By the way you ride I see why your horses heads are in the air, your BRACING on their faces. Learn how to sit on your a$$, feet FORWARD, hands forward coming out of the barrel, I can go on.

And if your friend is a "professional barrel horse trainer" would you be having these problems with your horse?

If your gonna be a snarky little brat about EVERYTHING your not going to get anywhere. Ya we might not be professional trainers but it doesn't mean we don't know how to train the CORRECT way...

I am not no Pro Horse trainer but I sure as hell can train a 1D barrel horse...

But I am not afraid to ask for help and TAKE the criticism, take the suggestions, and face the truth about situations. You need to grow up and face the facts of life and stop being snarky and act like you know everything, because you don't. You have no class, and your attitude is only going to make you more enemies and will only set you back.

And no I am not being mean....I am just giving you the reality check you desperately need.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

My qualifications don't really matter. The FOUNDATION for proper horse training is imperative, irregardlless of discipline. He is obviously missing something, but it seems that neither you (out of faith for Monica it appears) nor your trainer want to go back and digure out where or when it happened.
You may consider her a professional trainer, however were this my trainer (coming from a trainers perspective) I would be looking for a new one. She isn't fixing anything. You, I get you are young and want to run and have tons to learn - but a professional trainer doesn't continue to cover up and acknowledged issue, especially that one a client (you) is concerned enough to bring up.
Sometimes taking the time to go back a few steps in the training program will let you take infinite steps forward.

Oh-ho wow. Girl, you got nerve, coming on here and asking for advice at fifteen years of age and then getting snappy at us when we give you the advice you need.

Can't take the answers? Stop asking questions. We aren't going to coddle you here. You coddle a person with horses, they get hurt. We don't want to see you get hurt or train a horse wrong and cause problems. Fix this now, you won't have a problem.

If your trainer is so good, why did you come on here? Did you expect us to say "Oh you don't have a problem, you're perfect and amazing!" ? Because that will NOT happen.

I've been on horses a while. I'm not the oldest one here, I'm not a professional, but like BarrelRacingLvr I can tell a horse who needs foundation and I can put that foundation on and take them farther.

That is all.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Yeah okay we know Moinca Wilson but I'm going to take the advice from Sherry Cervi, Brenda Mays, Brittany Pozzi, Dena Kirkpatrick and Clinton Anderson over her, sorry kid.

And you posted a video of you riding actually. I agree, your butt needs to get in that saddle and you need to ride lighter.

You are taking everything as an insult. On this forum, we tear each other apart in a critique. But you know what? We have a good attitude because we're friends. We laugh and admit our problems like mature adults.

This is why the age limit is put on the forum too.....

I think this chat has wandered away from the helpful to the unnecessary. Barrelhorseluver, let's start over. Tell is what you really need. If you don't like our advice on it, just ignore it or think it over, or maybe ask for other ways to help.
As for others, let's be thankful that she actually came onto HF and asked for help besides those who don't look to improve at all!

IMO she's not asking for help, but attention.

Asks for help...doesn't listen...insults. That's a typical teen troll. Barrelhorseluver hopefully you can apologize and we can pretend we're all grown ups here.
