I know you're young, so I'll try to be as kind as possible in my remarks to you. At this point in your life, you should not be considering ownership of any horse. You have neither the required experience to care for and train a horse, nor the finances to maintain a horse.
Your first horse, just a few months or less back, your mom insisted you get rid of because you could not afford to treat it for navicular. I believe you priced it at $50. On Craigslist. God knows what happened to him, as that was kill buyer price.
Then you get a green mustang that you can't handle/train and your parents are forcing you to get rid of it.
Now you say you're getting a barrel horse, yet you post for help on here as you know nothing about barrel racing. What will happen when this horse doesn't work out??
You are dealing with a live animal with considerable care required... they are not disposable, you don't dump one because it doesn't fit your minimal experience level, and jump right into your next dream horse.
For now, I strongly suggest that instead of owning a horse, you get a job or volunteer at some barns to learn about basic care for horses, get some lessons in handling and riding, and maybe after a few years of learning, THEN you might be ready to own a horse. Join 4 H, they're a great organization for teaching teens about horse care.
