Whipping while Rating?

Can someone explain that to me? If you're whipping to encourage speed, what is the point of whipping your horse as they rate and/or turn their barrel?

I actually know next to nothing about barrel racing, but I would assume its to move the horse hind quarters or shoulders away from the barrel????? Haha I'm not sure!

A lot of people do it on really ratey horses to push them up in the pocket and get them PAST the barrel so they don't turn on top of the barrel.
beau159, DrumRunner and 27cfmd like this.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Haha ok! I was half right about staying AWAY from the barrel!

Exactly as Barrelracinglvr said.. I will be needing to do that with Ruger when he gets up there in speed because if I even THINK the word "sit" he slams his butt in the ground and will crater a barrel.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

hat's kind of how my mare is going to her second barrel but then she bends so much I have a REALLY hard time straightening her out going to her 3rd barrel. Any thoughts on that?

Do you have a video? Because there is a difference between rating and dropping their shoulders which is sometimes misunderstood.

Doesn't look like her body is attached to her nose to me. She's bending sure, but she's also bowing her shoulder and that's why there's a wide first barrel and hesitation leaving, etc. You need to get her shoulder to follow her nose.

Oh shoot I have to give up my computer. I leave you in Bailey's capable hands and if there's no reply I'll return and talk more in a little bit. :)
