    I agree, barrel racing is extremely misunderstood.

    Thank you
    The bad publicity it gets often makes me want to not do it anymore. When I say "I barrel race" People tend to think I'm some hick that yea haws my way through a pattern. When I say "I ride hunters" They have more respect for me as a rider. Its rediculous.

    Nice runs!!! I love watching barrel racing as it takes a lot of dedication and drive and you'll have to know what you're doing or you WILL ruin your horse.

    Kudos to you for having fun and lookin' good while you're doing it!!

    You both look good, except he kinda drags his butt a little around the barrel...he should probably be a bit more collected right before the turn.

    Thanks guys!

    Harlee-That's just how he turns. He's not built to get up and under and collected to the barrel. Its just easier on him and myself to let him have his own turning style.
    I used to try to constantly collect him and it came down to fighting his confo all the time and its just not fair to him.

    Now, on this oooober small pattern its tough to keep him foward around the barrel so he starts to wanna swing his butt when we lose forward momentum. Oh well.

    Anywho,Thanks again y'all!
