We had a barrel race scheduled for today, but due to some rain that left the arena’s footing unsafe, it was canceled. So what should I do when the rain is coming down and Mother Nature is not allowing me to ride? I do some studying. I have been an email subscriber to “Heather Smith’s Barrel Racing Tips” at www.barrelracingtips.com for almost two years now. I have purchased all 3 of her books and I often read her articles over and over because I always learn something new.
Anyway, about a week ago I became a member of her pro-content membership program. I have been reading her books and the articles and working on the “worksheets” learning more about myself as a person, horsewoman and barrel racer. While I am doing this (busted out the highlighters and pen/paper), I am setting my goals for 2015.
One the articles I have been reading and reviewing is “Peel Back the Layers and Get Real“, which asks several deep questions to get you thinking about who you are as a barrel racer and person. Along with that I am reading Heather’s most recent book titled, “The Confident Barrel Racer.”
