Have you heard of Fallon Taylor the barrel racer???
My daughter just discovered this lady this evening... she looks awesome, but I know nothing about barrel racing or barrel racers.. however, my daughrer is hooked and I am all for it. Any ideas on Fallon? Is she someone we should learn from?
Here's her website. (From some one, I heard to stay away from her horses.) I don't know why and I see why your daughter has taken to her. You don't hear much of her, I don't at least. Me I was inspired by Jackie Jo Perrin. And she hasn't barrel raced since a long time. There the website. May e-mail her and see if she'll give you or your daughter a few pointers.
I've heard mixed reviews about her. I don't know how her lesson programs are, but I do know that they sell out some horses that are absolute nutjobs that they play off as "calm and easy for anyone to ride", and some of their horses you could trust a complete beginner on.
