HORSE HEALTH PAPERS: The State of Texas requires that out-of-state horses have a 45 -day health certificate. All horses, either out-of-state or in-state, must have a 12-month negative Coggins certificate. You should consult your vet early, as it takes about ten days to recieve Coggins test results. Please present these papers when you check in at the Ranch. It is advisable to have your horse in good physical condition prior to the clinic or school. For the protection of your horse, we also suggest that all vaccinations be current.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

When I started barrel racing, I had no arena, no cowboy boots, no barrel racing saddle and no entry fee money. But I hunted up three old trash cans and put them on a little spot of ground in my grandmother's meadow. Grandma's hay crop was not too good that year, but my barrel racing sure improved!

Being a goal setter is a must for every barrel racer. You've got to WANT the win! You have to set the goal, want it and then go for it.

Keep These Simple Principles In Mind So You Will Enjoy Your Barrel Racing

  1. Be prepared. Do your homework and then let your training work for you.

  1. Back off when things are not going as you have planned. This will allow you to gain the proper perspective needed to find the solution to your problems.

  1. Convert mistakes into learning opportunities.

  1. Haul with people who enjoy the sport and make it enjoyable for you.
