Smile Critique my barrel racing form please!

OK, so this was my first barrel race ever, aside from just playing around in the arena at home. I was wondering if you could tell me what to fix for next time. The first thing I see that bugs me about it is I was not looking around the barrel, I looked straight at it... it was kind of intimidating, lol :)

well you need to pick your horses head up and pick up his nose and make him "look" at the barrel and make him sit and you should be pushing him over with your in side heel at the beginning of the barrel and you should be looking at your next barrel and the switching to your out side heel so that it pushes your horse to the next barrel

It's weird, she puts her head that low with everyone that I can see...
But I never knew you pushed from the inside leg around the barrel (duh) thanks!
