My name is Kate and I'm a barrel racer. I own two horses: Roman is a 20yo Arabian and Star is a 7yo Quarter Horse. Follow my YouTube channel: Kansas Barrel Racer. Instagram: @ksbarrelracer
Any advice for catching a horse that's hard to catch?
I would actually not chase or drive them away. They turn it into a game and you're telling them to do what you don't want them to do. My mare likes to be a brat sometimes. Walk in nonchalantly, halter on your shoulder, and approach him where he can see you. Also talk calmly. If he takes off, just walk after him. Don't hurl the halter at him or stomp your feet, just calmly walk and repeat the process. Now if you run, you'll tire out quicker. So just walk after her and repeat.
