What is a good way to start a young horse on the barrels?

Do not just work them on barrels all the time give them other jobs or you will have a barrel sour and or alley sour horse.
Work on one barrel first, once they get the idea oh how you want them to turn, walk them threw the pattern then start at the trot. trot around the barrels but lope to the next slowly they will understand their leads and hind end and you can start adding speed :)
