These horses are not abused. Everyone at my barn barrel races and they are not happy unless they are running barrels. As for the headgear, Yeah, maybe people should wear it but its really a personal choice. If they get injured that was their choice

Not an hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle of a Paint Horse

Man that was painful to watch. At my barn you have to wear a helmet no matter what since the instructor knows some people who died because they weren't wearing headgear. She has also been saved because she had a helmet on.

I'm a barrel racer and I have no idea why more don't wear helmets. I know I do.
And I love barrel racing. And I have never abused a horse in my life, thank you.

All I have to say, is that the last lady that flipped over was very fortunate to have a horse who didn't take off she was hanging off his bum. I can only imagine the damage caused had he taken off.

I love barrel racing and I love watching it, even though right now, I'm only doing walk trot it's a lot of fun. I only know one girl who barrel races with a helmet on at the shows that I used to go to. No one at the ranch that I ride at wears a helmet anymore unless they are working on a horse that could hurt them or something....I think? My mom use to be so annoying about me wearing a helmet but now she is like whatever. Thank God, I hate helmets.
