Do you ask yourself the following questions when working with your horse:
Here are some common reasons for a horse to get gate sour. Here are also some ideas on how to correct them.
Are you and your horse capable of winning? If you have already won, then you know you are capable. If not, then you can always go to some time only’s or exhibition your horse for a nominal fee before the actual barrel race. This way you can see how you stack up against the competition. If you think you are ready, but not sure, you can go to a race that has a lower entry fee and see how you do. Remember, with so many organizations and so many running in the 4 division format there are lots of places to go barrel race to get yourself ready to climb to the top.
It seems that no sooner does one season end, another begins. I am talking about the barrel racing season here. As soon as the excitement of all the association finals winds down, one starts looking forward to next year and to the dream of owning that special horse that will take them to the winner’s circle the following year. And this is never more true than when December rolls around and we can all start running our futurity horses.
