to barrel race or not to??
im not exactly sure where to put this so i guess it fits here. :]
This weekend my friend wants me to come with her to a rodeo and bring my horse.. she wants me to compete with her but i am not sure about it. I have owned Duke(the horse i will be riding) for three years. In those three years, we have maybe barrel raced 10 times(at home). Duke has been to a speed event show before but we did not compete.. He is 19 and a quarter horse, not sure if that matters..haha but to make a long story short.. I dont know if i should run him. If i do it will of course be for fun and it will only be one class.. But I have never been taught how to barrel race correctly. Im willing to try saturday but dont want to make a fool out of myself.. and be laughed at.. wow.. i sound like a young kid(no offence to anyone just saying).. i know Duke can do it.. he is willing to try anything i ask of him... do yall think it would be a good idea and learning experience?
we did do a mock barrel course today and he did great! not too sure about me but he was awesome! a little too close to the barrels tho..
i am also considering just letting my friend(who barrel races alot) ride him and compete on him.. but i wana do it! haha.. just scared of embarrassing myself i guess...
katies loves duke so very much!!
