barrel racing

I wasn't sure where to put this so i'm posting it here. I am working with my fiances horse, Atticus, on barrel racing, but I'm not 100% sure on how to go about it since I've never done it before ( I just always wanted to) He seems to like running the barrels and I think he has the potential to be good at it. I know there is ALOT of room for improvement for both of us. Here are a few videos from today. This was just his second time doing this.

Me riding atticus (my sturrups were too long in dave's saddle so my riding wasn' the best. Also, I know I need to not lean into the barrels to keep his shoulder up instead of dropping it as he turns, but other then that, I'm not sure.

Dave on atticus

We usually just walk him around the barrels to get him used to turning around them, but we added a little speed this time. Any advise would be great. Thanks!
