    Hello, I am going to be looking at this retired race horse that has already been restarted and working on the barrel pattern. It is 16.2 hands. I was wondering what everybody's thoughts are on using a thoroughbred to barrel race. I showed my trainer some of the videos of it doing barrels and...

    I've been running my gelding in the martha Josey million dollar bit, but its not enough control. He's very heavy on the hands, and I need a competition bit. The million dollar bit will be fine for practice, but when we haul, we tend to get really excited, and I need a stronger bit. I've tried a...

    So, I'm not from Russia but I really love it. I wish to move there one day :loveshower: Anyways! I was wondering, just randomly, if it would be cool to have a horse (Most likely a black quarter horse) named "Russian Roulette" and have its barn name be "Moscow". I imagine this horse to be...

    I barrel race but I was wondering what I could use as a barrel. I have barrels I just get tired of lugging them around. I know there are some pop up barrels but I don't have the money for that right now. I tried simple pop up laundry hampers but those are too short. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hello everyone!!! I love pole bending and a few weeks ago I got down to 21 seconds, my riding instructor told me that was a pretty fast time. I'm trying to get to 19 seconds. I'm not the best at barrels but I think it's because I'm just not as into them as I am in poles. What was your fastest...

    I have a 7 year old Quarter horse mare. I've had her since she was 6 months old. She loves to run. Loves. I've been wanting to do barrel racing since I could remember. She is literally the perfect horse for that. The only problem is that I'm still training her. She is already trained, the only...

    I just got my hands on a 15-year-old Curcle Y barrel saddle.. I've ridden in it once and it fits my horse darn near perfect.. But it's priced at $450 and me being young and broke, I wanna make sure I love it before I splurge :shock: this'll be my first saddle that I've actually owned (if you...

    I've been riding English horses for about a year now, and i still love English, but i have turned to Barrels when my sisters friend offered for me to let me use her horse for our city's 4-h. Her name is Savannah, but her barn name soon turned to Spaz after being trained so much in Barrels and...

    Hi everyone! I have a 20 year old quarterhorse mare, who is in good physical condition :) I want to start doing more barrel races with her next year as that is what she really likes to do. Do you have any round pen/arena exercises to build her stamina over the winter so she will be fit enough to...

    Hello, again! My horse has a problem -- We're training him to barrel race, but when he gets close, he'll shy away, squeal, anything to get away from the barrels! How can I help him get over this?

    Okay, so I want to start running barrels with my mare. I have already started patterning her, and she will trot and canter pretty nicely around the barrels. I ride English and western, but I've never really known much about running barrels. I have a couple friends who do it, and of course I've...

    I lease a 17 yr old arabian, and i recently noticed that her stifle seems to 'pop' when she moves and it makes a popping sound. I've heard that she's had stifle issues in the past, but this seems a little strange. She is older, and it is winter, im wondering if its possible that the cold weather...
