Barrel Training: Teaching Your Horse to Maneuver

Hey guys! I hope this video helped on teaching your horse to learn to maneuver around the barrel. Your horse will need to know this if you want him to make good turns. Just practice going up in gaits and back down until you and your horse are confident that you know he can get around that barrel without getting confused, disengaged, or knock down the barrel. I hope this helped, thanks for watching, remember to comment, rate, and SUB!!

    IMO, your inside leg should be directly behind the cinch to bend the ribcage and your outside leg should be further back, asking for their ass to move in.

    I have not been barrel racing before. My best friend has been in the rodeo a long time! And she's trying to get me to do it, but I don't know how. I'm actually pretty interested in it. I want to try. But am I too late to start rodeo at my age? I'm 13.

    I disagree with the outside leg all the outside leg is gunna do it push their ribcage inwards and makes their body turn out . The inside leg makes their body bend around the barrel

    I'm sad 😿😿 my horse won't even come up to me I call her name she comes to me but when I try pet her she pulls away and has her ears backπŸ˜” I know her baby is still with her and he is almost 4 I think her foal is the problem. I wanted to ride my horse this summer. but the other horses I think are trying to avoid her from bonding with me. if we try separate her or the Colt, all of the horses will freak out and escape. I love horses I tried to bond with her but what's the use 😞

    Awesome video. I think it's great that you can do it in a halter and use a hackamore for your runs. That's all I use my horse in so great job πŸ™‚

    Tips for everyone: tip their nose toward the barrel slightly, use your inside foot to put pressure to moe there ribcage to bend around it also called arching, sit down as well

    if you are putting pressure from the outside leg that will bring them in putting pressure on the inside leg with push them out…..

    Great video. Do you use a verbal cue while approaching the barrel along with the weight in saddle – in competition .. If so, what cue do you use

    I disagree with the leg pressure though…everyone I know uses inside leg for the horse to bend in an arc around the barrel.Β  It doesn't have the effect that you describe.

    You should make a video showing how to grab and maneuver the reins in the right way, it would help me a lot :'(((
