I know.. I think I'm with SorrelHorse now and it's on my bucket list to run their once. That looks soo awesome..You really need a big long strided horse for that pattern!

First time I've ever seen grass during a barrel race, that was awesome to watch, thanks for posting!

At least they put the barrels on the race track dirt. That's probably the reason for the barrels to be so far apart.

Tell me when you're going to run and I'll be sure to be there!

And as for the barrels, you'd be amazed at how many horses I've watched that slip on the dirt instead of the grass And everyone always panicks about the grass. I have a girl on video on a horse that came onto the dirt , and the horse's hind end dug in so much he almost turned himself over backwards o.o

On that not too, I've seen horses spook going from grass to dirt because ya know...The line between the two might eat them.

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

Holy granola, Batman! That's a BIG pattern.

I'm sure it certainly tests the skill of the rider and horse to know when and where to rate.

The horses seem to anticipate the barrels to me. Almost like they're thinking "ok, where's my barrel at?" hahaha.

This is too true, I actually saw one of the horses in the video hesitate when he was going toward the second barrel and that terrain change snuck up on him. Watching the vid again, it was the sorrel at 1:30.

It's almost as bad as the chalk line in the arenas at some rodeos LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Chalk lines are EVIL. Bailey would get me so many off-course violations/no-times if our arenas did chalk lines. That or she'd leap over them and toss me, LOL
