I know this is kind of old but it's near the top so I'll try to give advice too. When training for barrels, RARELY RUN THEM. You don't want your horse to become barrel sour. Work a lot on laterals and flexing, etch etc. Also, using the gorgeous map that person drew;), when you start training, start at a walk or trot. Walk/trot to the pink line, stop your horse, back her up a couple steps, and WALK her around the barrels. You can pick up a trot again at the green line. After a while, she will begin slowing herself to go around the barrels, and you will have yourself a horse that can rate! I cannot emphasize enough to TAKE IT SLOW. Only move up when you are 100% sure your horse is ready. That's all I have to say, haha. Good luck!
