I have always loved watching barrel racing at
horse shows and events and I always wanted to
give it a go myself. Yesterday was that day...
I decided I would sit up some barrels in Ace's pasture.
Then,I saddled him up and led with a lead rope around
the course, stopping for a brief few seconds at each barrel
before rounding them.
After a few times of repeating the course pattern, I
mounted him and tried it at a walk. He had a little difficulty
...his only problem is that he didn't cut close to the barrels
as he supposed to.On the last barrel, however he was
wonderful, he cut close to it and I got him to actually run a
little bit after rounding it!
For his and I first time practicing, I think we did a
great job, I was so proud of Ace, I really had doubted
him and I could even do it! <3
Any barrel racing tips would be greatly appreciated! :)
