I’m Heather Smith, and my goal for BarrelRacingTips.com is to deliver more valuable resources than you ever dreamed possible by delivering education, inspiration and implementation you can use immediately to get results.
Essentially, I’m here to help you WIN.
Before we go further, I’ll say that in my book, a winner takes personal responsibility to reveal the greatest potential within themselves, and is committed to developing their ability to reveal it in each individual horse they throw a leg over.
Winning is more than a destination, for me it encompasses a way of developing barrel horses that creates positive results in the arena, while also keeping the horse’s long term mental, emotional and physical well-being in mind.
This belief is driven by a genuine and foundational love of horses. I certainly resonate with this quote from six-time NRHA World Champion, Bob Loomis…
“Some people love what horses do for them. I just love horses.”
To sum it up – I believe in principles and methods that allow BOTH human and horse to WIN.
This passion leads everything I do, and is at the forefront of all the educational opportunities and resources I offer. That’s not where it ends, however; because I do also love the challenges of competition.
Competing is about striving to be the best at a given time, on a given day, under a certain set of circumstances that we don’t have control over. Add SPEED to the mix and it’s safe to say that barrel racing is not only a thrill, but is the ultimate test of connection between horse and rider.
It’s an opportunity to take something great, and make it even better.
Many of my own lessons were hard-earned. When I realized what did work and why, it ignited a passion for sharing these “secrets” with the barrel racing world, and thus BarrelRacingTips.com, and my book series, was born.
I’m committed to bringing you not only the support, tools, knowledge, skills and more, that the barrel racing world didn’t have access to many years ago, but resources that even in today’s age, aren’t available anywhere else.
The resources I provide are intended to help barrel racers of all levels learn to solve problems at their source, rather than just mask symptoms.
I go deep to reveal the truth, the real “Secrets to Barrel Racing Success.”
It’s my goal to offer quality, easy to understand, and hard to find information necessary not just to train and maintain a barrel horse, but help you reveal the greatest potential within yourself and your horses.
The resources I share are not based on one person’s opinion of what works, but are based upon ways of communicating with horses that they instinctively understand.
I have found time and again, that when we take the time it takes to develop our horses and our own foundations, we get a lot further, a lot faster.
In the process, limitations are replaced with endless possibilities.
What sets BarrelRacingTips.com apart even further is not just the fresh, original, eye-opening, results-generating content I share, but the way in which it’s delivered – which is positive, inspirational, and FUN!
