Barrel racing... help!

by Brenda
(Oklahoma City)

I really want to start doing barrel racing and I have been training with a horse that's one of my mare's foals and I won't have him for long that's the bad thing, and I really wanted to start early.

I'm trying to look for a barrel horse a young horse any where around Oklahoma. I'm really good at barrel but I also have a problem - my dad he pretty much doesn't want me to race what should I do?

Try just looking up in your browser barrel racing horses for sale in oklahoma.Horse clicks and equine, now is very helpful but there might be a few other good websites. Maybe craigslist but probably not.

talk

Ok so my best fiend asked me the same thing but about jumping this worked for her I hope. it will work for you so once your dad convinced your safe and will really do it he will probably be more willing to get your barrel horse, so if you have an adult that knows you and a lot about horse for me riding instructor talk to them about it, they might make it clear to you and your dad that you are ready and once he and you are ready to start and take your time to look around and be careful on what you buy, not all horse pepole are truthful, sadly.

Let him watch

Well, has he seen you race? If he has, and he doesn't approve, have somebody try to convince him. If he hasn't seen you race, let him watch. :)
