EDITl This was in respond to Bubba13 btw ^^
I'm afraid I don't have a video...
She's a barrel horse, 8 yrs old...I've been patterning her on Gymkhana. She's very far along in her training, in the effect that she has been run before and I would put her at least in the 2D at this point and with a really assertive rider she could very easily make the 1D.
I barrel race a lot, but a horse of this caliber is differant to me. The horses I was riding before were very, very good horses but this mare has more potential than any of them so I'm trying to look at every single option with her before picking a bit. Like I said in that other thread, the owner put her in that Wonder bit and she works okay in it, but taking it out is a nightmare...and its ONLY with that bit. I've had several snaffles and a Myler curb in her mouth and she was quiet with those, but doesn't work as well. In the sense that, he has a rebellious personality and although she has been getting better since I've been working on it, the snaffle doesn't bite enough on her mouth but the wonder bit almost seems to bite too much.
I've asked the owner about this shank myler bit I have, with a barrel mouthpiece which I used on my Anglo Arab gelding to run in that he LOVED, but she pretty much gave me a "Hell no" on it so I'm hoping to appease her by finding something else. XD
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
