    No not just at home I had one fall at home but she tripped then I had a fall at a rodeo the ground was awful. I think most barrel racers have there shares of falls

    I personally wouldn't run a hose ON grass (like tight turns ect.) because not only is it risky and dangerous, it also isn't super healthy on the horses joints either.

    It's not the running on grass that worries me, it's the turning that worries me. I have no problems riding on grass just as long as I'm not asking for barrel racing turns.

    I've yet to see ANYONE who is prepared for a horse slipping. Falls usually happen fast. Boom, and your horse's legs are out from under them. You can't possibly be prepared for a sudden fall. Hence why I do everything in my power to keep my horses running on SAFE ground conditions when I can. Rodeos are a different story, but I can at least control what ground I practice on at home, and you won't find me practicing on grass.

    So do you actually have good deep DIRT around your barrels for the turns, or do you simply have GRASS? Which is it?

    It's good deep dirt you don't have to believe me but I seriously do

    Yes I have dirt around my barrels where I turn but the rest is grass
