How to Train a Barrel Horse

I am basing these pages on how I am training my barrel prospect Scooter. Everything that I am stating that you should do is what I am doing. I gained my techniques from former instructors and barrel racing DVD's on how to train barrel horses as well as my own knowledge of barrel racing. I am hoping to keep supplying you with more information about training your own barrel horse as I train Scooter. If you have any questions about any of the tips I am giving or have any drills that you do with your horse that you would like to share with horseswithamie.com then contact me with the email below. If you would like your own horse on horseswithamie.com, that you either trained yourself or bought trained, than email me at the email listed below. If you are sending in a picture of your horse be sure to include a brief description on his progress and/or his achievements!
