    I would just work on dry work and no barrels until you can get him retrained. The more that you run barrels on him, the harder he is going to be to retrain.......
    I can not stress enough how important it is for you to get him off barrels. He is getting sour and getting into some very bad habits. In order to be a good barrel horse, you need to take him back to basic training. Right now I see both you and your horse being in danger. I don't mean to sound over dramatic, it just worries me. If there is anyway I can help, always feel free to PM me

    Look, you're getting some good advice. Please listen. You do not handle your horse well. YOU need more training. You both need training from an adult, not a 16 year old.

    I see a hospital visit in your future and I'm scared that your horse will become unmanageable and dangerous. I'm scared for the safety of you both!

    I don't think it's fair to critique her, guys. You all are giving good advice, but if she wanted critique, she would have put the video in the critique section. I mean, I post my own videos in the videos section because I just want to share the video, and I don't want people critiquing me. So, while your advice is all good, please remember that she's not asking for a critique. She's simply sharing the video with you all.

    But Equuestriaan - if someone posts something on the forum, even if they didn't ask for a critique - and we see something that needs voice of opinion - we feel obligated to say something because we want to help.

    Remember, we are here for the horse - and I look at the horse shaking my head because the poor thing has no idea what his rider is asking. He is trying so hard for her, but is confused beyond belief - and that breaks my heart.

    So by friends giving advice on here, whether asked for or not - is not meant to hurt or insult or bash, but to help, aid and give assistance to.

    Mhmm. I just didn't see she asked for critique, lol. *oblivious* xD

    You see something going on that you want to help with, you have every right to say something. We're not doing it to be mean - we are doing it to help.

    I cannot stand by not saying something, when I see something wrong going on. Regardless if asked or not.

    Yeah. I get it. I don't think she's treating that horse well at all... the half-rearing is a clear sign that the horse wants that rider to stop what she's doing.
