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 don't 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 don't 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...
