My barrels and poles from Sunday

I apologize for the terrible quality. The video was taken on an iPhone. I just found my camcorder though so we'll have a lot better videos this weekend!


I got 10th in the barrels and 5th in the poles.

On the side note, my mom actually put this together. It still has me confused because she used a rock song by Egypt Central... Huh.

Was that in Bowman? Looks like their arena. Just curious!


Not bad! Hard to tell with the small video, but I would push just a tad bit deeper and faster on the 1st and 3rd barrel. Just to keep your speed up and just to hopefully shave another tenth off.

I can't see exactly what's going on in the poles, but he's kind of "bouncy" after he comes off a pole. What are you doing with your hands? Are you able to keep them quieter and move him off your leg more? To speed him up, he's got to run through a little smoother. But not bad either!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Trust me this girl does not need your critique nor did she ask for it; This thread is old anyway. There is however an actual section where you are allowed to critique...

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I understand that but this is not the place for it, unless the person asks for a critique. ;) I'm not even sure how you can see her hands in the poles. She is light with that horse in her other videos.

Ok I'll give you some back story to this.

The horse I am riding on barrels, this is my first time EVER riding him at a barrel race. Of course it's not going to be perfect. I was just getting used to him. The next time I rode him in a barrel race, we WON the barrels.
Also about me and my pole horse getting in rhythm, I want to show you this video. I got second at state in this.

I LOVE watching that video lol! VERY smooth poll run...I always like watching a nice smooth and snappy run through!

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Thank you! I was so tickled with the run because it was amazing and there was still lots of room for improvement! I can't wait for next spring on my Ruester~
