Anyways, it doesn't seem like anyone got the wrong idea but just in case, that is not what I meant ^-^ I did not know SHARK is one of those groups, but I get the feeling their videos are voiced by the same person who voices PETA's......

    Very odd.....
    You state this, yet I see multiple things on your blog how you are a member of PETA and think rodeo is abuse... Hmmm... And it's abuse to collect your reins on your horse and kick when you barrel race.. Now this thread doesn't surprise me..

    I dislike the mass majority of barrel racing due to the fact the rider thinks they need to jab a horse repeatedly with spurs and whip it continuously to get done faster. A horse should be taught to break into a full gallop at specific times and not have to be kicked or whipped. We have a retiree now in the pasture now that all you had to was flick your reins and he gave you his everything.

    Some horses rely off that if the rider has a horse under control. You can't hurt a horse kicking him. It's almost like a cue for the horse to break out after the third barrel. An aggressive rider can really get a good run in on a horse, but a rider that isn't as aggressive, and odd as it sounds, will almost confuse a horse on what to do if they don't push him. But I'm not going to get into techincal barrel racing, I just thought, after reading the OPs ridiculous blog, that the whole reason this thread was even started made a little more sense.

    And maybe even bad to ride a horse more than 15 minutes. Great catch!

    Eh, I have my own beliefs on barrel horses. I've only ridden a handful that were actually trained for barrels (most of them were with me for re-training ). I'm of a mind that, while some horses do need more encouragement than others to give their all, there should never be a reason for the full out onslaught of kickkickkickkickkick with every single stride. A few well-timed bumps with your legs should be sufficient on a well trained horse. In my mind, the constant hard kicking would slow the horse down because they would be tensing their belly, expecting the kick, and that would shorten their stride.

    But, like I said, this is just an observation from a simple cowgirl who's ridden working horses all her life.

    Either way, that doesn't make me hate barrel racing, it just makes me hate bad horsemanship...and that's everywhere, in every discipline, and every country.

    Ahem, like I said, run by different people. I did post that, because I heard somewhere that sometimes it can hurt a horse's back if you are too heavy. Since my horse is a tiny four year old arab and I am fairly tall I decided to be paranoid since I don't ride that much anyways, I said nothing about it being cruel. If you look at other things, I have actually defended things like spurs, etc, on multiple occasions. Please do not take things out of context when I have so clearly made an effort to not offend anyone here.

    Don't know you, havn't read your blog BUT

    Your blog, your responsibility, your image


    It's like the owner of a business saying "well yes I run the business but I'm not the only manager so you can't sue me for that becuase there are others here too"


    Back to the general theme here
    As far as barrel horses: i'm going to refer back to the investment of time and money that the top end barrel racers put into their horses and their events i'm sure if they were slowing them down or hurting them they would change. They can't afford to travel the country every weekend with an injured horse or a horse that isn't in top notch condition

    I mean nobody has done anything except say their opinion, and I rarely use that blog anymore. It was kind of a hobby thing *shrug* all I am saying is that I do not share that opinion, and if I saw a problem with them sharing their's I would have kicked them off.

    From what I have seen, people who kick their horses throughout the entire time tend to get slower times. I think a lot of horses just know what to do, so they probably wouldn't need too many kicks, but then again there is always that lazy horse.
