    We're all very helpful and respectful to each other here, we've come to know eachother and I don't think any of us would blast another like that. Like Red said it's not necessarily about the number of years, it's about what you learn during the years and the experience you gain. Just because you have a few years on her doesn't mean you know more. It is over the internet and I really do think you should watch your attitude. You should really check it, because attitudes don't go far on this forum. Your fire will be put out really quick, and people aren't going to take it. JMHO.
    I agree, I am respectful to everyone that's respectful to me, thanks for noticing.


    I didn't bring up the number of years I had been riding.. you might want to read through the post again. No one likes a snobby barn brat AKA a know-it-all. So when someone brings up the number of years they've been riding, in an arguement that's the impression they portray.

    Once again, im not the one with an attitude, or an ego issue here..

    Im sorry but my class simply wont let me stoop down to your level.. have a blessed day.

    I would have to assume that by working cattle, most or if not all your years with that you have been riding or around horses in general. Didn't mean to assume such a broad thing though, sorry for that. Also, if the last bit of that was about Red I'm sure her and lots of us here can say she's much more than that.

    RED SAID, (different windows to find this, can't quote.)

    "If I'm being snarky I apologize it just irks me that people have one or two experiences and BAM know everything.

    I've been doing this for 17 years and I'm still learning. Everyone is a pro on the Internet LOL"

    I didn't really take that as being a know-it-all, she even said she's still learning. Maybe that is the impression you take when people bring up how many years they've been doing something or around horses. She was just backing up what she was saying with facts about her riding experience. I like to know that when someone's giving information. Facts to back up any information instantly make the information more credible as long as the facts are indeed true.

    YOU/TOTO SAID,

    "Let me guess-- you going to exclaim how many years youve been riding horses too? "

    "I do not think im better than anyone here-- I come here to learn, not argue with people who think theyre better than me-- I have news for ya.. you aint."

    That's not very polite now.. She never once said she was better than you, noone did. I'm not trying to rag either, it's an obviously nothing to really argue, so I'm not going to say anymore. Just trying to let you know others weren't the ones with attitude here. I've stooped to no level lower than some have already reached. I'm not harshing on you either, or trying to do anything just stating what's already been said and clarifying.

    Red was trying to get advice and got jumped all over, sorry OP for hi-jacking for a few posts.

    Your conjectures are irrelevant to me-- ill be honest.

    No one got 'jumped all over' exaggerate much?

    I very politely stated my opinion-- its rude to make up assumptions, and aspersions.

    Hate to burst your bubble but I never read anything written like "people who think theyre better than me-- I have news for ya.. you aint." And think, OH. That person is super polite. Just sayin....

    Thankyou Annanoel, that's exactly how I intended for that excerpt to be taken. Unfortunately, some choose to take it certain way to fuel a pointless fire.

    You see, I would never run or practice barrels on grass because **** good barrel racers on here, that I have seen competing through their videos & photos, posted it wasn't a good idea. They earned their cred with me for other posts I have read of theirs. I don't barrel race either, or chase cows or rope. I tend not to give much credit to anonymous posters who hide behind their screens. OP, you might want to do the same.

    Im hiding behind my screen, because you lack a false sense of friendship due to me not posting videos, that could actually be anyone? Kinda creepy..

    Op, youve been doing it for what.. 7 years with out problems.. hmmm.. yet im lying? I would never recomend someone to do something that could possibly get them, or their horse hurt.

    Anything that could possibly happen to you, or your horse in the grass can happen in an arena with good footing--with the best footing in the world--why? Because you simply can not prevent something unpredictable from happening.

    Anyone could practice in the grass one day, thenhave their horse break its leg on good footing, because they were having an off day.. its a pointless arguement.

    It's not a pointless argument unless you want to break down your horses hocks.

    Like I said a good barrel horse who uses their body correctly in good ground isn't going to on grass or hard ground. So even if it was safe, why would you? It just teaches bad habits and hurts the horse.

    I think this thread has gotten way blwon up personally.. She asked a question we have our opininons.. and now we are fighting about it... WE wouldnt run our horses on grass.. ( The barrel pattern at least) because we want our horses to be sound for years to come. NOW, It was our advice that she doesn't do the pattern on grass.

    She said it hadnt been bothering her horse doing so, BUT if you read her other thread.. Her horse did look like she was uncomfortable. We are just trying to help. IF she doesnt take it.. Then Its her fault. Not ours. We tried.. Now its up to her...

    I agree with all, this thread doesn't need the drama. OP asked, we answered and gave truthful responses. It's her choice whether to take it or not. Couldn't agree more with Wares, I'd trust the barrel racers who posted, but that's my choice. I know a lot of them, have seen them run. So, yeah I take their advice. I would NOT run my horses on grass, ever. Bad experiences, and a few falls to know it's not right. To each their own.
