Quirt: The joys of having a barrel racer..
Howdy again. I just got back from the barn and had fun except when i rode my 18 yr old ball of fire. I rode timmy around the track bareback in his new hackamore an all the sudden he takes off full speed. I tried to stop him but could not! Most people know that to stop a horse in emergency u turn them in a tight circle but being the barrel racer he is he scooted in a tight circle at top speed. I finally stopped him by turning him into a fence but when i looked up there were a bunch of english riders staring at me like i was insane well what can i say, i am!
