  1. Barrel Racing
    My horse over the last 4 years has developed a horrible gate problem with Poles and Barrels and now it is carrying into the judged events as well. She won't walk towards the gate and just spins to face the other way and whenever someone tries to lead her in, or I ask too insistently she rears...

    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...
  3. Rodeo
    So i just have to brag here for a little.. At the last NLBRA rodeo Duke and I went to, our pole run went EXCELLENT! :D He was on fire! We ran our fastest time yet: 21.473!! I am so proud of my little man!! We are getting faster and faster! I'll hopefully be able to get the video from my aunt...
  4. Rider Wellness
    As of now, im in a gymkhana series for 8 weeks. We run barrels, poles, and a 'mystery' event. Last week, I went into the arena to run poles and distinctly remember taking a deep breath, as i always do. My aunt stood nearest the end pole (1st) and as soon as i was finished loosening Duke (We ran...
  5. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello everyone! First off, I'd like to say that I am a novice adult rider. I began riding September 2011 and it was on a very automatic school horse. I went once a week for a half hour a week up until late Nov when I stopped riding due to the holiday madness and planning for a wedding. I...
  6. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Story time.. At a show last weekend, he behaved exceptionally well for the pleasure classes. He listened, never offered to do anything bad, and was just a great pony during those classes. We actually won 4 out of 7 of them! Then it came time for the 'Fun & Games' at the end of the day. We went...

  9. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So just under a month ago I was jumping my horse fine, and he was refusing a bit but as he's new to jumping I accepted it was normal and carried on jumping and we left it on a good note. 2 days later he down right refused to jump at all (and my horse is incredibly stubborn), I didn't have enough...
  10. Barrel Racing
    Hi, I', Caitlin and I'm 19. I've been riding over 10 years and never done anything but trail riding. I have wanted to get into an actual event for awhile now...I don't have my own horse though. I think I want to do barrel racing but I don't know if it's the right event for me. Am I to old for...
  11. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    Solid 19 year old barrel gelding...He runs 2D at big shows and 1D at smaller shows. He looks and acts 12 and knocked .1-.2 times off of last year runs. He is a solid 22-23 second pole horse as well. He is 15 hands and 1100#. He runs hard, sets and rates well. He has won 3 saddles in 5 years...
  12. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    I used to compete quite a lot, but life got in the way and I got into boys. Now that all that is over, I am ready to start competing again. I am interested in barrels, poles, flags, keyhole and things of the sort. My main horse I trained for this sadly died of a heart murmur. I am including...
  13. Barrel Racing
    So I have started gaming with my horse. I first used a snaffle, but he was not very responsive, so I switched to a kimberwick ( I have no other bits).He is fine unless he is grumpy, which happens quite a bit, then he puts his head down and bucks. I try to pull his head up but it doesn't work. I...
