  1. 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...
  2. Western Riding
    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...

    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...

  6. Barrel Racing
    Finals went excellent for me this year! My mare Kayo had two quick clean runs! I was super proud of her. Clean was all I was hoping for! But my little Duke really surprised me! In the first round, we had a 20.7-- our first 20 second run EVER. Anddd got 2nd in our performance. I was 4th overall...
  7. Barrel Racing
    Well I've been working with my two horses on barrels and poles. My mare has been working well on barrels and poles for a couple of years. Anyways, last night I just tried letting her do her own thing on poles. I pushed her, she turned the end pole without blowing it, and I pushed her through the...
  8. Horse Conformation Critique
    I have a six-year-old AQHA mare and I think she has a lot of foundation in her. I kind of want to get her tested to see if she would qualify for foundation quarter horse registration, but I don't want to waste the money if she wouldn't make the cut. What are your opinions on her pedigree? Is she...

    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...

  12. Barrel Racing
    Here a few few of my runs from some past weekends (: We've been trying out new techniques for my barrels, and poles he usually does realllyyyyyyyy well, but only on a track. These poles we're in a bigger section of the arena and thats why he went wide (: Still clocked in great though...

    He's a 6yo APHA gelding. first, what do you think of his build/conformation for barrel racing? How do start your horses on barrels (excersises/drills/bits/etc)? And what would you recommend for him?

    What do you guys think of this mares conformation for barrel racing? 7 years old, quarter horse.
  17. Horse Conformation Critique
    I've had experienced horsemen come up to me and tell me that his confirmation is impeccable as well as his blood bay coloring and that I should show in halter with him (which will NOT happen because he is a barrel horse,) but I was just curious if you could please point out any confirmation...
  18. Barrel Racing
    Well i have a rodeo this weekend and I was just thinking about my 'warm up routine' that i do right before my run...And i was wondering what all you other barrels do? Like for me its when im warming Duke up, i listen to my good ol' country music playlist and get him ready. Then we go wait for...

  20. 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...
