Wink Barrel horse - ground work help!

I purchased my mare when she was 1 1/2 years old and have broke her and have been doing light trail riding and ring work since. She is now turning 4 years old. This summer (now that I am confident she is almost fully grown) I had plans to start her with some barrel racing training, as this is the direction I would like to take her. The only problem is now I am pregnant with my second child and can not ride until after the pregnancy. I would hate to put her training on hold for so long, and delay her barrel training. So, I need your help with advise on what barrel racing training I can do with her from the ground. Please remember, she is fully trained otherwise so I need training ideas specifically for the barrel horse!

Thank you for any advise you can provide!

Is there a stable near you--do you board? You didn't say...
There are ALWAYS girls you ride and train but don't own their own horse. You can shop around a find one that can continue your training until you can ride again. At 4yo, you really are finished breaking this horse, so the requirements are just to put in hours on him.

I agree. Just find someone to ride your horse, especially on trails.

I don't do a lot from the ground for barrels. I do stretches and suppling and such, but I do that with all my beasties.
