My Barrel Run on 3-17


This run was 17.4 seconds- our fastest so far in that arena. We got a little past the first barrel because my foot was slipping out of the stirrup but thankfully I was able to get it back in and still come out in second place

If you ever get the notion you're somebody of influence, try ordering someone else's dog around

Rather i should state this was our fastest run in COMPETITION in that arena. I'm sure we've run faster than that in practice since i have had some runs that were just flawless unlike this one, lol. Also, this is my little Pixie mare i am riding. 14h of all heart and fire

Fairly nice run.
Around the first barrel you took it a little wide. At home try practicing circles around the first barrel and your horse will just get better and better. Also work on rating a little bit more and I think you two will do fabulous! Beautiful horse by the way :)

Thank ya . We practice every week and usually have fairly nice runs, but you can hear me telling her "whoa whoa whoa" from waaaaay back- that's when my foot was coming out of the stirrup and therefore my brains fell out of my head and we went wide, lol. I am just gratefull i was able to shove my foot back in because last time that happened i went flying off (BUT to my credit, I landed on my feet), lol!

Err usually it helps to have people who know the pattern running the show. i love running barrels because of the adrenaline rush, but the only person i consider myself to be in competition with is myself. i could place dead last and be just thrilled if it was a good run . Although it's funny you mention that because at the practice playday I DID go around the third barrel the wrong way. I don't know why- i just had a complete brain fart and cued her the wrong way. i realized it immediately, but it was too late. Now we HAD been running to the left first the day before so maybe that was it, I dunno but i sure felt like an idiot, lol.
