    I absolutely LOVE barrel racing but got out of it when I seen some of the idiots at some of our local rodeos. I have NEVER in my life seen six grown men having to force a horse in the arena ever. People down here don't do it right. They go about training so wrong and it ruins the horse. It really does. I went to a race a while back and one boy actually finished the race and then plowed his poor horse threw the arena wall, which was btw four boards and four foot tall. You all did look good and you looked like you were having which is the joy in it. Its not just a speed sport or to say how hard you can kick the horse to run it. Its fun and enthusiastic. It great if you do it right. So many people turn it into a harsh sport though. Anyway, Im done. LoL Yall looked great.

    New heart-Thank you! I'll look up some of her videos.

    Toosexy4myspotz- Your so incredibley right. I've seen some really really bad stuff that made me want to just stop barrel racing. But at the same time there are some really incredible things to witness at a barrel race besides the barrel run. So many of the riders have a truly deep connection with their horses and it shows through in every run. And I just love watching someone come out of the arena with a smile on their face. They could run the slowest time, hit a barrel, or break to a trot the whole time but they'll still come out with a smile sayin their having fun.
    In the end there was too much good in barrel racing to make me want to stop all together.

    Buckoff41570- It is awesome to see someone come out with a smile on their face and do the best they can't. Its a hard and demanding sport. Your right, the bonds between some of the horses and riders are unbelievable. We still set up barrels in our arena and just have fun. That's what its for. One of my good friends compete in North Carolina and has made an awesome outburst in her career but now she is sell the horse that got her to state finals because she wont go into the arena anymore. She raced her at every local show and all the open shows around the state. The horse spend most of the week in a trailer traveling and when she got out she had to race. The girl was good but she ruint her horse in the prossess of being the best and trying to get all the ribbons she could.

    I've known the same story. There are several kids around here that did the same to their horse. One of which competed so often and so hard that the horse is no longer ridable in her late teens.
