I am trying really hard to sit deep and lock my elbow, but he still seems to pop me out. Any suggestions or ideas that could help me ride smoother t...

Re: Special Guest - Molly Powell - ends Dec 22nd

Going further with the cow breeding post. I also have a true blue cutting horse, turned team roping horse, and now I decided he should be a barrel racing horse as well. This horse is/has been always super easy to train to do anything. I was recently readin Sue Smith's article in the Spin to Win abo...

Re: Special Guest - Molly Powell - ends Dec 22nd

Hi Molly Thanks for doing this. I have a 12 year old gelding running bred on top - cutting/reining bred on the bottom. He has been a huge challenge to just get broke and a good handle on him, in order for me to gain control on him I basically took all the run out of him and put alot of collection i...

Re: Special Guest - Molly Powell - ends Dec 22nd

Hi Molly, I have a six year old that really locks onto the barrels but sometimes anticipates the turn too much and shuts down too quickly. It really shows up on his first barrel the most. You can feel him pushing on the inside rein about three strides in. I'm able to get him by most times but know ...

Re: Special Guest - Molly Powell - ends Dec 22nd

Hi Molly, I was just wondering if you have had any barrel horses that have bled after you have made a run? This is a new thing for me and I am just looking for the best way to take care of it and wanting to hear other stories about this. Thank you for your time! :Sun: and keep making the great vide...
