    Crazy Barrels Run On My Friend's Horse

    This was my crazy barrels run on my friends Paint/Arabian, Tobi, (from october I have gotten alot better with this horse since then)I absolutely love riding this horse because she is a challenge and she has a crazy mind of her own lol but she's a good girl. Keep in mind this was only my second time in the arena with this horse she is totally different outside the arena

    You need to get out of her face. Being in her face needs to mean something, and you're consistently pulling her reins back.

    What the heck are you yelling at her for, that seems like nothing but distracting and unnecessary? Get out of her mouth and on your butt and off those stirrups and you wont lose your balance.

    Yup, she looks like your run of the mill over run barrel horse to me, hot at the beginning, head up and hollow, no rate or pocket, just running around a barrel...

    Not being rude, just observing.

    All I am going to say is please, please stop gameing and get some lessons to solidify your position, and ditch whoever it is that lets their horses get that hot and fizzed up before a race, and encourages you to yell at them around the barrel, and pushes you to game at this point in your riding.

    Don't stop gaming, just get some more lessons with a good trainer and you will be great.

    Sorry, put that wrong. I don't mean stop gameing forever - I mean stop gameing for now, while you work on solidifying your position. From what I see, you are nowhere near ready to be riding at these speeds - And it takes a lot of experience to be comfortable going slow and steady at a gameing comp (Trust me, I know!).

    Barrel horses aren't born with crazy minds. They develop crazy minds after years and years of successive pattern racing with riders who don't seem to think they need to bother doing any training, or anything really at all aside from slam into their backs and yank on their faces.

    This is indeed a crazy run. Stop riding untrained animals. The grey you were riding in the critiques is a MUCH nicer barrel horse. But he WILL turn into this mare if you continue on this path. It's only a matter of time before the lack of training and common sense burns a horses mind and teaches him one thing - run for your life.

    I never understand people who let their horses get like that. Wouldn't it make for a nicer, more comfortable ride if they aren't hopping all over the shop?

    It happens in MG too - I can stand my horses toes on the line while waiting for the flag and always get a better start than those whose horses are spinning, rearing and hopping around!
