Yes I would definitely still take him out on the trails once a week. But are there any exercises that I can practice that have to do with barrels but are not actually running the barrels? Yeah see when my horse is galloping behind or with another horse, let me tell you he's got some speed. So I know he has the potential. If not barrels what other sports would you reccommend? Im not really into cows.
Also I would like to add that you need to find your place in the saddle that best helps your horse get around the barrels. It is different for every horse.
