Please help!
I have a barrel horse and we're currently doing youth rodeo. She has a great pattern for barrels and poles but she just isn't going fast enough to win. I have had a few tips of some things to add to her feed and I was just wondering if anyone knew of some natural things I could give her to help her run faster. If you could let me know that would be so wonderful of you. Please help and thank you so much!

Uh, you usually train your horse to help her run faster...

barnrat 01-14-2007 10:52 PM

Reason: Moving this to the Horse Training forum for ya since this pertains more to training then it does to Health.

She is a cross between Quarter Horse & Paint. Also, she is very strong because I do train her, believe me. Weather permitting, she has a workout at least once a day. I was just wondering if anyone knew of some things I could add to her feed or give her before I run. But please only let me know about all natural things! I don't believe in the whole horse drug deal a lot of 1D horses are getting.

Maybe she just isn't fast. It's maybe the limit speed she can produce. There are horses that cannot jump higher than 1,10 meter but they are big and beautiful. Some horses just cannot run so fast. Maybe you use wrong techniques for training.

Maybe she can run, but doesn't have the right temperament. At the risk of totally ruining her calm nature, try Red Cell.

What is Red Cell?

a qh X paint would just be a paint.....

A paint is a horse with qh blood in it.....a pinto is a cross bred with no qh....but still has the color markings.
