    "Collect her head when stopping" throws up a huge red flag for me.

    Please explain what you mean by that so I'm not taking it out of context and worrying for nothing.
    Army wife and NBEventer like this.

    Actually, teaching a beginner requires more skills then teaching someone who already knows how to ride. You are setting the foundations down for someone in a very dangerous sport. If you lay that foundation incorrectly it will crack and eventually give out and become very dangerous. Which is why someone has to go through hundreds of hours of training, working through their rider levels and then mentoring under a certified mentor, then going through hours of exams to get your IOB which is instruction of beginners through Equine Canada.

    It scares me that someone who thinks the most important part of training for barrels is having "the right bit" is teaching beginners. And that you think a horse "collects their head" when stopping. I have seen a lot of other incorrect and possibly dangerous advice here so far.

    You are a youth amateur. There is nothing wrong with that. You need to step back and start soaking in the wisdome and advice of the very talented riders, trainers and coaches here. I believe you will have your eyes opened and be shocked at how much you are missing. I know I am constantly learning new things here, things I never in a million years would have thought of.

    Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy your time here and learn lots from our members. This forum is a wonderful educational tool.
