| || | Barrel horse, not switching leads
So I have a 7 year old horse who from what I've been told when I got her has had some miles on her when it comes to barrels. When I do them with her I can tell she really loves it and she is really fast and goes tight around the barrels. But the problem is, after the first barrel she doesnt switch her lead to go around the second barrel, she slows down and trots around them. I push her to keep going and switch but nope, trot but after that barrel she goes right for the third one no problem. When I do figure 8s with her she switches her lead fine but it seems once I put an object for her to go around she can't do it, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what I could do? Thanks.
