A tip for training a retired barrel horse to be a show horse

- slow! Everything you do do it slowly! Barrel horses need to learn how to be a horse again and that is ok to go slow. Do lots of gate work your horse is going to want to run when you walk it through a gate and that is not very showy haha

You should be doing slow work anyways not just on a retired barrel horse.

Yes but that is something that should be done regardless not really a tip. Slow work is the basis for everything.

If your barrel horse tries to bolt through a gate, it needs to go back to slow work. Every discipline starts slow.

Yes I do lots of slow work with my barrel horses in the gate, I believe ur run depends on how ur horse enters the arena

I think you will have an easier time seeking out threads asking specific questions instead of posting general tips as it's easier to help individuals than just posting for the masses.

Barrel horses should be able to show in other events. I can take any of my horses into a hunt seat class and do decent, without then acting up.
