I am trying to get into roping&rodeo, possibly barrels.
I had my first Western lesson yesterday, very exciting! Definitely not first time on a horse:) I used to take English lessons, being honest and not trying to make English/jumpers upset, I hated it...Did that for a total of 5yrs...
Hi guys just wondering is it absolutely necessary to have a horned saddle to barrel race, or is it acceptable to use a stock saddle, and just no one does it. Is there any specific rules in barrel racing in regards to saddle I should know about.
Does anyone know where to buy a barrel horse in mid east CA?
Travel possible within a 150 mile radius.

Going to buy in JUNE or JULY
It is probably a good idea to go to a high school rodeo and ask everyone there if any seniors are done rodeoing and if they want to sell a...
hello, I recently purchased my horse and wanted to get back into western riding, either to improve his balance or start showing. when i've ridden western it was mainly trailing but have had a go at barrel racing and a tiny bit of pole bending, now with my horse I want to find what is best for...
Ok so recently I started working for someone who needed me to ride a horse she doesnt have time to ride and only has because she likes her personality. But doesnt quite know what to do with her. Shes a cute grullo dun barrel horse. From what I know she was ran on barrels for speed and only speed...
I'm the show announcer for Midland Barrels up in Fonda, New York. So far this season we have done a Glow in the Dark Race, A Wine Run, and a Pick up 'n Hustle. We are looking for other fun run ideas to do at our next show. The Wine Run was done at our July Show and it was pretty...
I have just purchased an ottb. I would like to give his legs the best support possible. He would be a pole and a barrel racing horse. I was wondering what brands are the best and what will give him the most support. Tia.
I'm going to be gaming along with ranch rodeos and i'm wondering which saddle type I should purchase for doing this?
I don't like how far up a barrel saddle puts me but I also don't want to die going around a barrel (not that I really need the seat assistance, just a mental security thing I...
I havea 12 yr old Mare barrel horse that has had a terrible cribbing habit since she competed as a reining horse in her younger years. The Vet came and said that she needs to put on more weight. She is getting 2 qts of SafeChoice Senior, 1 scoop of Soy, 2 scoops of equipride, 1 large scoop of...
I have a question for any barrel racer that has been or is in Fallon taylor's barrel racing collage? What did you think of it? Did it help you? How does it work? I am considering using it, but I want to make sure it is worth it before I pay.
Thank in advance!
I'm working on my horse Tess with a milder bit for responsiveness and training purposes. It's not that necessary, she rides pretty well in a Tom Thumb snaffle except for the fact that she doesn't turn as well in it. As I am interested in doing barrels, whether just at local FFA/school stuff for...
Hello! It's been quite a while since I've been here and my other threads are so old I figured it better to start a new one. Let me start by introducing myself, my horses, and this new journal.
My name is Kate, I'm 17 and live in NE Kansas. I've been riding for 7 years now and barrel racing for...

Hay yall! So yesterday I was out riding with two other girls (which CJ and I do very often) on a short little trail. We were going past the barn and going to go to a trail the other way when one of the girls says she wants to change her saddle. No problem! I said the third girl and I would jump...
Okay, so I doubt this is going to work...but here we go. In April I plan on taking Rowdy to Area E in Florida, for the 4-H show, and I have a few questions that my group leader hasn't been able to answer.
1. I ride with a tom-thumb dog bone snaffle bit, but I don't know if dog bone bits are...
I hust got a new mare a month ago and i have no idea what bit to try her in. She was riddin in a sweet iron d-ring snaffle. I was wondering what is the next step up from that bit. I will be training her for barrel sand I want somthing with a little leverage.
I've been looking for an affordable barrel saddle pad, since the one I'm using is pretty old. I know that 5 stars, best ever, and impact gel pads are really nice, but I was looking for one that was a little more affordable.
My price range was around $100- $200 ish. I've seen saddle pads from...
Hello all! :D
I've recently bought a 3yo Paint who I will be training for mainly barrels and poles, and the occasional hunter under saddle.
He's ridden in a Dring snaffle or a Little S Hackamore at the moment (Snaffle type is pictured below).
Once he gets of age, and has the proper training...
