  1. How far away from the barrel are each cone set away from the barrel? I realize you have to adjust for each horse but what is a good starting distance?

    1. Hey Kari – We got in touch with Michele and this is what she said:

      It depends on how small of a circle your horse can lope. A younger or greener horse the cones can be 20 -30 feet away from barrel and moved closer as the horse becomes more gathered up and comfortable In that circle. For a more finished horse can be 8-10 feet from the barrel.
