How many barrel horses have you trained? And where are you located if you don't mind me asking.

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~

So, can you give advice on how to train barrel horses? Since your mom puts the foundation, and you finish them off? What do you think is more important, the pocket, or how you leave the barrel? As far as training goes.

Interesting, I used to think the same thing. But that's actually not true, when working with young horses I'm told. How you come out of a barrel determines a lot of how your next barrel goes. As soon as you leave that barrel, your already setting up for the next. Now, you can start out with a big pocket, and shrink it down as your horse becomes more and more seasoned. But it's extremely important that you come out clean, so you can enter the next barrel clean. Not sure if that makes any sense.

Question: How would running down the alley ruin your time, when the timer is set before the barrels and after the alley?
Army Wife: I agree with you the approach and coming out of the pocket is the most important to me anyways. If you go into close you will come out wide.
