  4. Barrel Racing
    For years I have had one goal in mind. Barrel race morgan horses. Be completely honest with me, I am a barrel racer in a barn of jumpers, I have heard it all haha. Be mean if you want to.

  6. Barrel Racing
    Hi everyone, I was wondering which states are the best to live in when it comes to having an abundance of barrel races to go to. The state I currently reside in just doesn't seem to have as much as I've seen in other states such as Texas and Oklahoma. I'm considering moving to those areas but...
  7. Roping
    Hey y'all! 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...
  8. Barrel Racing
    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.

  14. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    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...

  16. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
