She is a beautiful rider and a talented trainer. And Kassie Mowry? Same... Started off her riding career in dressage. Very knowledgable and talented.
    I didn't say she was the only one. I said she was one of the few.

    Oh I don't expect you to type up the whole thing! I think like other said that if you stated who wrote it and where it came from it would be fine, but please don't feel like you need to take that much time to bring up the whole article! I would love to read it, but maybe can track down a copy myself?

    Don't worry about it...I'm bored anyways. It will be no problem for me. I'm a speedy typer and I love writing/typing stuff.

    I'll probably have it finished tomorrow cause I'm going to have some supper and watch the Grammy's now. But don't worry it will be finished between tomorrow and Tuesday. I can assure you. =)

    I find a lot of the people who compete in my region are ignorant stuck-up witches who don't have a bloody clue about horsemanship and drill the poor horses until they know nothing but "run like hell and turn." But if you were to throw one of those horses at a speed barrel course they would be so confused that they would end up knocking every barrel down. And their spurring, shouting, flapping burdens don't help.

    You wanna be a good barrel racer? Learn from an expert. Find a nice calm horse who has all the leg training and start by trotting, loping, then running the pattern. Although I often scatter the barrels in random places to keep the horse guessing. Most of the time I work in the reining arena however, because I think that teaches more than the actual barrel training does.
