What have you done so far to get your horse started on poles?
What is their strengths and weaknesses?
What kind of times are you running now?

My horse is a finished pole horse, I just want to become a better pole bender my self, he is really strong runing through the poles but stalls on the turns, and he is a 20, 21 sec horse but I havnt ran and clocked him yet

This is a very, very vague question...

What problems, specifically, do you feel you have as a rider that make you want to improve?

Seeing a video of you run would be best here. That way we can see your style of riding and see what you need to work on.

Again. We cannot help without seeing what is going wrong. Get a video and post it.

We need to see a video.

We can't possibly pull guesses out of thin air about what may be going wrong.

My biggest advice would be to keep your knees, feet and arms IN!
I've seen many new riders get hurt/knock poles because they had limbs sticking out that hit.
