About Barrel Racing~
Today I am going to be talking about barrel racing. Here are some videos on barrel racing and after them I will talk about it.
Barrel racing is a very dangerous sport on horseback..
You see? It can be quiet harmful.
It can also be fun but like I said before. It is very harmful and hard, even for the horse.
Barrel racing is a great sport and I am an English rider but I am starting barrels. It’s really fun and I love it! I ride at a ranch near me and I ride a 19 year old quarter horse named Reilly. He is a great horse because when he was younger he did competitive barrels and poles.
In barrels there is a pattern, it’s not just go around 3 barrels as fast as you can. First you have to learn the pattern.
Or do a left, right, right turn. Depending on which hand is your dominant.
Then work on your turns and speed..
And don’t hit the barrels, if you do judges will add 5 secs to your time.
That’s all I got for today! Later.
