Barrel Racing

Hey guys.. I was hoping that someone could help me!

The story is I will start riding this horse for this women.. the horse is an EXTREMELY well trained horse.. the lady wants him to be trained in all disciplines.. both english and western.. I know how to teach a horse to jump and stuff(which is what he daughter really wants him to be trained in) I trained my horse from the ground up to jump..but I have absolutely no idea how to train a horse to barrel race or pole bend.. I have been taught to barrel race myself but I have not been taught to train a horse how to barrel race correctly.. I have started my horse out by teaching him the pattern at a walk and trot...but the lady wants me to train him and I want to make sure I can do it right..and yes, she knows I have no idea how to train him to do this..well actually, I have an idea how to but im not exactly sure on some specific stuff like where to rate at what exactly is rating and anything else I may need to know... so if you are a barrel racer or know about barrel racing please help me out! Thanks in advance!!

Well youve already started out on the right foot! Once they have the pattern down it'll be pretty easy. Get the lead changes down too.
