Are you starting her on barrels in this vid? She looks like she's doing well!

She's been on barrel for a few weeks

You mean when I picked up my rein? She thought I was going to point her at a barrel, but then I fooled her and made her settle into a nice trot inside the pattern.

Mmmhm. When training for barrels, you gotta set yourself into unpredictability mode. Or else the horse will get sour and grumpy and do all kinds of bad stuff.

That's good to know :) Kind of the same concept when riding greenies.. can't do same ol same ol or they start acting up.

That was really fun to watch, she's got a cute canter

Yeah I could tell! I think it's how she is built that makes it cute. Looking forward to your updates though :)

I just bought a Jr. Cowhorse bit with a copper roller for her, and the crazy chomping has almost vanished!!! Although, some sucky news: While brushing, I found a very sore spot on her back. I'm hoping I can get it looked at and fixed this week by a friend of ours who does chiro :)
