Well i've recently got a little 13.2hh brumby. As you may have seen in one of my threads 'what do you think of my new horse?' & to pass for state barreling you must do the course in under 21 seconds. Well i've only done two barreling courses on him. This was yesterday, Sunday. The first time we did it. We did it in 26.2 seconds. I was pretty proud of my lil boy :) hehe. But then I desided to go again as I was haveing a GREAT time & so was buddy! That second time we did it in 24 seconds! I was so so so happy hehe. We flew lol. I've desided that im going to really try to be a good rider doing barrels & for buddy to be a good horse, well pony doing barrels. All of my turns were really really wide lol so if I cut down my turns to be tight, As tight can be then surely we'll cut at least 2 seconds off my over all time. Just wondering if you have any tips on tighting turns, speeding lol & anything else you need to do barreling. I love it & I think I may have found my future thing I want to persue. :)
