I always hear people say oh barrel racing it’s so easy all you do is go out there and run around metal barrels. Being a barrel racer is more than getting on a horse and going out into the arena and running around some metal barrels. To be a barrel racer it takes guts, determination, strength, agility, trust and a lot of patience.

Recently, I broke my very first colt that was given to me by a mom. It was a huge learning experience and extremely rewarding, but required a lot of patience, time, and responsibility. After I got this colt riding really nicely, I decided to sell him. He was only a two year old, so it would be awhile before I could really start him on the barrels hard because his joints hadn’t fully developed yet. I wanted to buy a mare that was ready to start on barrels and that I could breed to our stallion.
By saying that, “Sometimes when you fall off your horse, you just don’t want to get right back on.” (Smiley 1), the author sets up a scenario where because the girl is scared of getting hurled off of her horse again, she finds comfort in a special horse that she holds near to her heart.

Some people believe that rodeo is not a sport, but I believe that it is more intense than baseball, football, basketball, and anything else that tie into that matter. There is rodeo all over the world. From Brazil to Arizona, there are athletes that compete all around to win money and buckles. When people think about rodeo, the three main events that they think of are bull riding, barrel racing, and roping. Each event in competed in all over the world.
What some people do not understand that these horses are loved so much. It doesn’t matter whether it is a barrel horse of rope horse. After they work, we pet them, give them treats, let them relax, and sometimes they get a massage or ice on their legs. Source A, “The Sport - the Life- of Rodeo” says, “Just like in basketball, there is a team. My team consists of my horses, my parents and everyone who helps me keep my horses working, including my vet ad my farrier, who shoes the horses,” (Pallesen).
Ironically, the horse escapes. At first, the boy was upset and began to cry. The story says “pero mi tristeza era gusto. Lloraba de alegría. Estaba celebrando, por mucho que me dolía, la fuga y la libertad del Mago la trascendencia de ese espíritu indomable” (Ulibarrí, 5).
SCJHD Rodeo Princess You stand there taking deep breaths and trying to remember every move you’re about to make. You watch your competition and fix their mistakes in your head, you smile and tell them they did wonderful. You stand there taking deep breaths, and go over the same words you’ve said a hundred times. You wait for your name which will come soon and when it does you take one last deep breath, smile, and take that step on to the stage never moving your eyes from the judges.
Young horses will often have “training issues” under saddle which is normally caused by being stressed and not being mature enough to be under saddle (Geor 2). At the age of two, a horse cannot physically perform to its fullest potential, unlike a horse that is skeletally mature (“Conditioning Young Horses” 4). Even though a horse should not perform before the age of three there are many things a trainer can work on with a horse preparing him or her for being trained under
This was also the first time I felt my heart had it’s own mind. My heart was saying ”Jump out of Mikayla and go back home… She’s crazy!” Back to reality…there was no turning back once all of the girls from each team lined up on the starting line.
