Hey there, I have a question that I'd like your opinions on.
I have an appaloosa pony that was rescued, and her left eye is scratched from an accident. I wanted to train her western this summer with the help of my coach, and then I remembered how fun barrel racing was when I was a kid (I've been riding english for 6 years now). I was thinking it would be fun to do barrels with this pony, but I remembered that she had barely any vision in that eye and might not be able to see the barrel. I was thinking that it should be ok because she has me to steer her, and I would be walking her around the pattern for a while so she would know that there is in fact a barrel there. I just wanted to know what you guys thought of it? I haven't ever really barrel raced, so I didn't know if perfect vision or anything was a major factor.
