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!!
