Im not going to comment on the first video (I think it's the same on you have another thread on?) but I think it's the best out of them all.
Please don't take anything I say as offensive. The barrels video just shows that you need a lot more work to be running speed events. These are old though you said, so maybe there has been improvement since (If I remember right you placed high in barrels at a gymkhana recently?). From that video though, your turns are sloppy and you didn't finish the pattern. Your upper body is very unstable and if it's going to cause you to yank on his face, stick to slower work. The poles I'm just not going to critique at all because that was a disaster (Every pole run of mine looks like that so don't be upset lol). You definitly have a quick horse, but you need to harness that energy and make sure he listens instead of just runs. My horse is the exact same way. He would run until he keeled over and I need to make sure his focus is on me.

Your horse is cute and has potential, just like I said you need to harness that and give him the tools he needs to improve.

How long until you think your knee is healed up? If that is the reason you are unstable like you say, that is going to make a big difference.

Good job! Just remember that speed is not the most important thing with gaming. It's the final component.

I couldn't help but laugh in the last vid when your friend said "This is going to be Marrah and Clippy "gilloping.""

I know^^i laughed too when i saw the video after we galloped. No one ever knows what goes on in her head, i dint think she even knows!

Thanks SD. I didnt really worry about the speed, it was about control.

I don't have sounds so I missed that!
That's what I'm saying is that in the videos of your speed events, you have no control. Go back down to a trot or easy lope to perfect things and get him listening.

You should post some new vidoes if you want an accurate critique! I'd like to see the new, controlled Rowdy

very nice horse...with the barrels and the poles he didnt seem to be responding very well to the bit have you thought about trying him with something else? I have a barrel horse that i used a tom thumb on and she would knock down a pole or two and I switched to a different bit and you would be surprised with the difference. Its worth a shot huh? I understand he was a little "fiesty" but you were pulling real hard on his mouth. Also I have had a lot of luck with the IMUS Comfort Gait Bit. As far as the amount of pressure needed to make the horse want to respond
