I absolutely love all contesting! I only got to go to one show this summer and it was a contesting one. I like the people who go to these shows, they're much more bearable than many other show people! They're there to have fun usually more than win. I love doing speed patterns with my horse because he loves it! When he turns the last barrel home he gets so excited to run he lunges forward! I don't even need spurs or an overunder, I just stay on, steer him and stay out of his way around the turns!

I like the people who go to these shows, they're much more bearable than many other show people! That is so true I go to a contesting show every weekend and when I go to a pleasure show the people seem more stuck up. I m not saying that any of you.

I've been barrel racing for 10 years now. My horse is the 2008 Barrel Champ for WSH. =] I will never get bored of the adrenalin rush right before a run. It's COMPLETLY amazing. Go watch some NBHA or NJRA circuts for some REAL barrel races. Playdays or 4H are fun, but the real stuff is pretty amazing.

God forbid I go to any heaven in which there are no horses.
Proud owner of 2008 Barrel Racing Champion, 2008 Halter Champ, 2007 Res. Barrel Racing Champion.

What's WSH? BTW, I miss that very much : ) Hopefully I will be able to get back into full swing within the next year or so.

I barrel race my Purebred Morgan, Clippy. I just got him in the winter, so I have not shown him yet. But in the spring/summer I will. Every time I go out to the stable I practice barrels for like 20 min. He was ranked the 2nd horse in Michigan for the fastest in Gymkhana. I have ran him in 15.00 second flat!
