Hoping to see you come to the southeast this year! :)   a couple of weeks ago was my first rodeo in 5 yrs and only the 6th time I 've ever ran my new horse.. .. At the barrel shows he does great and we can nail the 1st every time but the rodeo he is very chargey to the first  and we run by it....I think i need to ask him to rate a different way at the rodeos than the horse shows...is it ok to bump and give back right before a barrel or do  I need to ask for the turn and not give back..

I feel like a am grabbing him and trying to muscle around the first and am locking my arm in place..I think i need to bump and giveback and then pick up again when its time to turn...but i have been told not to ever give it back once i had it...

I do also try to keep his nose tipped to the inside...

allaboutme - 2011-10-27 11:01 AM Do you have any plans for upcoming clinics in Colorado? 



Not yet, but working on it for next year. Mary Cecelia Tharp and I are trying to find a good time to do one.

kwanatha - 2011-10-26 7:39 PM  Dena,

I will be working in the morning so here goes! thanks for coming on. Your videos are awesome. i have a gelding that can't make up his mind. one day he is a free runner and the next he is super ratey. geeze never had that problem before. he is young and this is his first serious year barrel racing. He is very well broke with a reiner handle. One problem is he will overturn and stare down the barrel...ooops... he then has to wiggle his rear not to knock it over so he is not in that great of a position for second.Thanks I appreciate any insight.



You are welcome and thanks. :) My friend Ian Francis says, "They go how you ride them." I know this sounds harsh, but I know from my own experience that I sometimes am doing things I'm not aware of. In fact, at one of the clinics Ian and I were doing together, I asked him how to get my mare's head up...he answered, "Don't ask her to put it down, then you won't have to try to get it up!" I have never had trouble with her getting her head too low since. Also, young horses are inconsistent, so we just have to be more consistent and have patience and be really AWARE of what cues we are giving. :

realitycheck - 2011-10-27 10:20 AM Hi Dena,

Thank you for visiting with us today.  I love your DVD's 

I am having some trouble with 1st.  I can see what I don't like but am not sure how to fix it.  Maybe I am not letting him get past the barrel far enough?

  Would you mind taking a look at this video if you have time?  Sorry about the quality, but its all I have that is recent.

Thanks,

Jeri.



edited to add: That this is a young horse that I have only been running for a year.
