What does "Blown up" Mean?

Someone interested in my mare asked if she was blown up on barrels.

I think it could either mean too excited or sick of it.

Help! :)

I've heard it used as being too excited. Or as having gate issues.

I have never heard it before but I would likely take it the same way as someone asking if a horse was "burned out", aka....sour. You might want to double check with the person asking though since there are many options on what a certain phrase could mean and meaning may vary by region.

Gate issues. Fighting the bit. Making wide, out of control turns.

Ahh ok. Well she doesn't do that. I am going to do a video of her for him.

I've always heard it used in the context of being sour. That can include blowing off turns and/or gate issues.

To me it means ruined, as in their no longer of use for barrels. They blow up at the gate and are completely barrel sour.
