    Counter arc and make sure she knows how to rate so she does not anticipate the turn too much and drop her shoulder. Counter arcing along with a good rate should fix her right up. I have never taught my horses nose to the barrel, that IMO usually makes them drop the shoulder... going around the barrel should be more of a hind end pivot that swinging the hind out and pivoting on the front... You want them on their hinds when they go around and light in the front, it allows them to turn much smoother and set up better for the next barrel.

Direct your horse to a point approximately 3-4 feet away from the barrel, and always push your horse past the barrel before you start the turn. I would also teach your horse to disengage her hind end using your legs and seat, so that when you apply your inside leg she moves slightly away from the barrel and around it.
    couldnt have said it any better myself ! Totally agree :)
