how to handle an ex-barrel/pole bending horse
My horse used to barrel race and pole bend and everytime we go in the pasture or if she's with another horse mostly, she just explodes and tries to race anything in sight! I know this is common with barrel racing horses, so I was wondering what is should do.
She did this 3 days ago and she was still going nuts when we came back into the ring from the pasture, so I let her gallop around and around the ring till she was dead, beat tired, and she still acted like she had lots more energy, but she was soooo sweaty and my legs hurt too bad to keep going anymore. Any suggestions? Thank you so much!
