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?
