Okay, I can't edit my post, so, I would like to also add, when I practice rollbacks, I turn away from the fence, not at it.

And no, I didn't train my first horse at 16, and I don't want any lip about how you trained your first horse at the age of 7, lol.

I would also like to say that a hot horse is MADE to be hot.. She might not like the way her horse is, but someone taught her to be the way she is.

Since I know you watched the nfr.. Idk if you know anything about Roping, or not, or if you even watched that part, but When they would walk their horse forward a few steps, then would back them up in the box, and pullin on their face, That was them making the horse hot, so it would take off after that cow, when it come out of the chute. One them even said "the more this horse runs the better he gets" aka, the more people ran him down the arena, the hotter he got, and the quicker he would be, and more alert, and he'd watch for the cow to come running out, and take off..

Also, for the "Borrowed Horses" comment.. I didn't see anyone else riding Scamper, or stingray.. My point is, they might have borrowed a horse, but they aren't on anyone's horse who has won world, anyway. .

Could you please stop with the negativity?

And for the record I actually didnt ask for help getting her to slow down... I asked whether a trainer would be able to do for her what I can't.

Though I did enjoy hearing everyones ideas and I am using SlideStop's suggesting and making her calm down at a walk and trot right now until I can get her sent to the trainer.

To answer the OP's question, yes, I believe sending the horse to a good trainer (be sure to check references and watch the trainer at work before bringing your horse there) would fix the problem.

I've noticed a trend of a certain poster turning perfectly innocent posts into arguments. Yes, this poster seems to have different ideas than most on this forum, but there's really no need to go into a post planning on getting offended. I think dropping the "I'm right no matter what" mentality at the door would be a good first step. I've been riding for over 20 years and have learned more on this forum in a few months than all those years.

Isn't a roll back the act of rolling over the hocks. I did refer to the turns as turn backs. It's the tight turn toward the fence that causes the horse to compress it's body and get over it's hocks. When riders run a calf along the fence and the calf ducks back the way it came, that horse does a roll back toward the fence to keep his eyes on the calf.

At this point anything I say would be a repeat. I've got nothing more to say that would be helpful to the OP at all. I've dealt with a lot of horses in training and have a lot of experience so I don't feel that any of this is helpful to either of these beings. OP, I'm glad you got a suggestion that helped you! Keep us updated as to how the training goes, and if you end up reining with this horse I'd love to see pictures and videos...Reining is such a wonderful sport for barrel horses to be involved in. ^^

Right now the problem is convincing my father to take a full day off to haul her down there... especially after the last time we went there and she didnt end up staying.

Today I got on her and spent an HOUR walking her before she decided to calm down and go easy on a loose rein. Looks like LOTS of easy calm walk/trot days are in our future while I convince my dad.

That's a great plan. Also if you an counter arc at all...That really helps my horses get a little focus back (Bent one way, but circling the other way, so I.e. You will have your horse on a right circle but the nose tipped to the left) and will also get you some shoulder control while you're at it.

That definitely sounds like something we can work on.. because BELIEVE ME when I say weve got a lot of slow work ahead of us!
