RON RALLS CROSSES MILLION-DOLLAR MARK
“I love the horses. I love to see the progress. I am a very slow trainer,” he said. “Foundation is the most important thing to me. I probably go slower on them than I need to but I think long term. There is life after the Futurity and life after the Derby years for a horse, if you do things right. That is more important to me than winning the Futurity.”

Find the Right Barrel Racing Approach
When your barrel horse has problems, it usually means you, as a rider, have problems. When your barrel horse goes too far past a barrel, be it the first barrel or the second, it shows me that one of two things can be going wrong—a rider error or a problem with the horse’s body position. Luckily, it’s fairly easy to correct both of these problems.
THE PERFECT CIRCLE WITH RON RALLS
Teaching horses to walk in perfect circles with little assistance from my hands is a big part of my whole program—and not just for barrel racers. Many riders I work with, when I ask them to direct their horse into a circle, run into problems. The rider may have trouble asking correctly, or the horse doesn’t know how to walk a circle on its own.
Western Horseman & Ron Ralls
If there was only one drill that Ron Ralls could use on his cow horses, or even on some of the barrel racing horses he has worked with, it would be walking a perfect circle. The exercise, when executed properly, builds strength, creates suppleness, and helps the horse become more precise with its footwork.
