Call me silly but I love having my a$$ IN the saddle, not above it.
I couldn't do like in the pictures on a bet.

I've never barrel raced and probably never will. However I've always made strides to make everything I do on a horse look as effortless as possible. I know every horse is different but that looks way more counter productive than just a good balanced seat and proper leg use. I think some of that extreme leg stuff may be just for the "show". Just like flashy chaps for bronc and bull riders. JMHO

There are definitely people that kick and whip for show.

It's easy to get caught up in the game too, get over excited, and make big moves you didn't mean to make. I, personally, try to only use the whip for the run home or if my horse shuts down on me...But some girls will whip til the cows come home in hopes of getting an intense looking picture or attention.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
