Hi, I’m Holly Heidemann on behalf of Expert
Village and now I’m going to show you the proper way to complete a barrel pattern. The
first time I’m going to go around, I’m going to start the way the majority of the people
do and that’s with a right turn at the right barrel first and then two left turns. It’s
a clover leaf pattern either way.
The other way that you can run it, if you have a horse that runs better to the left
first, is to go to the left barrel first and then go across, make a right turn around the
other two barrels. So I’ll do each for you so you can get a look at it. We’re going to
do it at a trot, so you can see each portion really well.
