    K.:) well I'm done. This thread got way out of hand... we all have our opinions.. some want the best care for their horses some... don't. Ask questions and don't like the responses.. why ask in the first place?

    The only thing I'm wondering is where you got your holier-than-thou attitude and why exactly you think just because you have so much "experience" it makes you better or in your mind smarter than other members here.. Show respect and you'll get respect.. Sorry, I don't take people with bad attitudes seriously or have any respect for those people. Big bad "I got so much experience and you're stupid, because I got so much experience I'm better than you" people just make me laugh.

    I have to say I completely agree with 1RedHorse and the other who have posted in this thread saying basically the same thing.. I don't know you toto but I do know 1Red very well and know her experience, just because someone has different views or ideas on what's right doesn't make them wrong at all.. Bottom line about the grass thing is that it is USUALLY very unsafe for a rider to run or even lope the pattern on grass. You can argue all you want, it's a simple fact.. It's especially dangerous for someone who is new to barrels in the first place, then throw in the fact that their horse is also new and it's cruising for problems. I understand that people who work ranches and that sort of work have to do hard work frequently on grassy areas but those horses are used to their jobs and the rider and horse know how to handle themselves.. An inexperienced rider and horse shouldn't put themselves in that situation.. When it comes to the OP and the area she practices, if it's grass, she can put in a little effort with a shovel to turn up the ground in a 5 or 6 foot radius around the barrels and make the over-all situation safer for her and her horse.. You can ask a majority of barrel racers and you'll hear the same thing. I don't have an arena at my house but I do have an open place that we've harrowed with a tractor and keep it kept up because the exact reason of being safe.. The harder your horse is on it's legs the shorter it's barrel career will be.. Better safe than sorry.. An honestly I don't care what you think about my advice, it's not advice I'm giving you, I'd rather help someone new to the sport and urge them to be safe before anything.. I'm done here.

    Casting aspersions now, are we?

    I only mentioned it, because 'red' said they had 17 years experience.. like.. so? Lol.
    Im just sayin' if you're going to belittle someone makesure they don't have years more experience than you do is all..

    I do absolutely respect everyone-- I expect it in return-- my momma always told me 'trreat others the way you want to be treated' I stood up for the OP after people were saying it was a horrible thing to lope the pattern-- she said there is now dirt around the barrels and only lopes the patern and has been doin it for 7 years..

    If you're going to be rude with me-- I can be rude too.

    Seriously if your horse is too dainty for loping on grass, you might should find a new hobby-- horses are unpredictable -- my horse crushed my leg in correct footing.. I've never had a horse so unbalanced they slipped on gras, and I stated MY opinion..

    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.

    Doing something for year doesn't mean she's doing it correctly..

    My horse is far from dainty but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Horses can fall any time, so what if it happened to you in good ground? Is that supposed to make a point in anything, it happens every day it doesn't make you special. Sherry Cervi and Stingray fell in good dirt at the 2012 NFR. You sure are cool because you busted your ass in good dirt!

    Who cares? I don't have to be better than you and couldn't care less about your "experience" or who you THINK you're better than.. Everyone has an opinion.. And that's just that.. I promise, there are people out there better than you and seriously have a much better attitude about it. I'm not one to run around saying I'm better than others, I know I'm pretty darn good but I'd never go around sticking my nose in the air.. You seriously need a big ass slice of humble pie. No one can learn anything when they think they're better than everyone else.. Lol get over yourself, no one cares how cool you consider yourself.

    I know a lady named 'sea wolf' who used to breed mules there, and trailride them through the mountians.. She was in her 100's and had all her real teeth.. I can't remember the name of the mountians we did a group trailride on.. my family lived in CO Springs, but we drove way out to her horses.. real dry there. :(

    You ever been to the rodeo place where they got a trail goin up the mountian where the barrelracers race up it? Lol its got a little warm up arena in front of the actual riding arena.. I got pics.. I'll have to read the backs of them, lol.
