Okay. Well when I start a horse intended for barrels, I start them almost the same way I would if I was just going to trail ride them. However, I stress things like flexing, shoulder control, rollbacks, flexibility/bending in general, and correct leads. Then I pretty much just pattern them after I feel like they've mastered all that. I start with practicing turns and bending correctly around barrels. I find that I hardly have problems with them losing their foot placement if I start them like that :)
If you want more detail just say so :)
I got summer hating on me cause I'm hotter than the sun. Win-ter hating on me cause I'm colder than ya'll. I'm being hated by the seasons so forget ya'll who hating for no reason!
