  1. Horse Shows
    Yesterday was Pluto's first time doing a gymkhana event. I wasn't expecting him to place, I only wanted the experience for him and to have a little fun. We entered FC so I planned on trotting him around the patterns and canter home. I've only had him for 4 months so I'm still learning things...
  2. Horse Breeds
    Okay, I'm looking at this Quarter Horse cross and he has these big Draft/Mustang hooves. He's only about 14.3-15hh, but I'm pretty sure he might be a Draft x Quarter Horse. He seems to have some speed, but I'm just worried that it might be a bit more difficult for him to do speed events with...

  4. Horse Training
    Hello! My 21 year old Quarter Horse has been living at my grandmas house for the past few years, so he does not get ridden very often. We may be boarding him closer to my house in a year or two. He has never gamed before and can be very lazy at times. But has never had any mayor health problems...

    This was a little club gymkhana Duke, Kayo and I went to.(: Duke hadnt seen a single pole pattern in 5 months and he ran a 21.811.. Im so excited to see what hes got for me this year! It felt so good to be running him again. <3 Kayo got my first 7 second 75 up&back run, and it was her first time...

    All I'm wondering is if you think it is possible to be a self-taught barrel racer :-)

  8. Horse Talk
    I've got a little playday on sunday, and I haven't heard of a few of the events. Is anyone familiar with the Flying W and Tomahawk patterns? Idaho Figure 8 is also kinda throwing me off, but it looks like it might just be the figure 8 pattern? Thanks! :wink:
  9. Horse Conformation Critique
    I don'r have the best pics of him but what do you guys think of this 6 year old APHA gelding as a barrel prospect?
  10. Barrel Racing
    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...

  12. Rodeo
    I wanted to share with everyone my videos of my green mare, Precious, that I trained! Please no rude comments. This was her second barrel run EVER, I'm holding back her speed in all of her events to get clean turns before focusing on speed. First barrel is our weakness. And the keyhole video's...
