Wide turns help

I got a horse about a year ago and I have been trying to train her on contesting patterns but she has trouble turning does anyone have any suggestions to help fix her wide turns to help shorten our times (I would attach videos but I can’t figure out how to)

Are you talking about barrel racing? Remember, this horse forum has all kinds of disciplines here, some some of us don't know about barrel racing, or 'contesting patterns'.

As to attaching videos, the easiest way is to upload your video to Youtube, then copy and paste the URL directly into your post.

Does she find turning tightly difficult? If so, it could well be a physical problem. Or is it just lack of training? If lack of training, I'd get her good at it at a walk & then trot before trying to run her.
