I wanted to share with everyone my videos of my green mare, Precious, that I trained! Please no rude comments. This was her second barrel run EVER, I'm holding back her speed in all of her events to get clean turns before focusing on speed. First barrel is our weakness. And the keyhole video's sound is distorted, this was her first run ever on keyhole, and she spooked at the poles haha. I'm SO proud of her, her second race ever and she got a 21. The poles was her first race as well, with only one at home practice, she got a 30 second time, the video cut off half way though.
I also have a video of me barrel racing my retired-ish mare for the first time she had ran in 5 years, it was just practice but I think she did good, second was a bit wide though.

Let me know what you think!!! Please don't be rude, she's my pride and joy because I trained her myself and she's come so far from when we started. These videos were over the summer in June! Sadly, after this race, she went lame and we won't be able to train again until February, that's going to be a total of 8ish months :( but I won't give up on her!
We have other horses lead us into the gate to prevent problems that we had at that show, because if you don't walk in the gate you get disqualified, and the first race I trotted in and they almost disqualified me, so we get lead in now to keep her walking because this horse wants to run (except I don't let her!)
