    Let's see if this works... here's the 21 second barrels with precious.

    I love gymkhanas on young horses, and even seasoned horses who need refreshed. It makes them think a little more than just the standard barrel and pole pattern.

    This last year I found myself without a finished barrel horse and two prospects.

    Ruger, just turned four. First gymkhana for seasoning. No videos yet.



    My mare, Selena, was a finished reiner and started as a cowhorse before she went to gaming so she took fast. Still a little goofy at times, but took some money easy. Internet is too slow to get me a video to post right now though. Darn foot of snow.

    You guys don't look bad at all. You should post around here a little more we don't bite.

    Thank you so much! When I can start training her again in February when she's all healed, I expect to get much better! That's a really sweet picture by the way! (:

    Thanks ^^ It's nothing super impressive, that was taken at a gentle cruise and I really made him rate back to me because he's a pretty freed up horse.

    Okay now I can show you my mare. She's still more into the cow events than she is gaming and in the goofy fling-myself-every-which-direction stage...But when she really focuses, day-um, she can haul and she can turn. We're working on getting her constantly in focus right now though.

    Thanks ^^ You guys do too. I've always had at least one finished horse on the string but since my gelding went lame I'm left with a lot of time to mold these two into barrel horses.

    Oh and we require more pictures. That's pretty non-negotiable here. XD

    I know what you mean, except my current barrel mare is lame.. My finished horse is Dixie, that was just a practice in the video I posted, she usually gets 16s and 17s, except she's getting old so I can't do too much with her and she's technically my sisters. So I wanted to start Precious on barrels and I'm glad I did because she's quite the horse!

    I know you aren't asking for critique, but from a barrel racer to another, I've found that the horse generally goes a little slower when you "pump the reins" as it moves the bit in their mouth. I use to do it all the time because the person I learned from it did, and when we both found that out and tried it, we both got better times (on his 1D-2D pony and the 3D mare I was leasing.(:
    But..didn't get a chance to get to the computer yet, should have time today to post my runs on Lucky and my trot stakes on ST.(:

    Thanks for letting me know that. But we arent at all trying for speed yet, she gets too hot and totally blows all of her turns, so I was holding her back so she could focus. When I am going for speed though I will definitely keep that in mind, thanks.
