Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and its rider.

Thank you! And we all haul and run together so I ride whatever horse needs a tune-up, refresher course or just exercised! The more horses I run on, since they all have different styles, it helps in all my riding. And also because my horse was/is still in training, but he's a million times better then he was 2 years ago but he's still got alot to learn!

This is my pretty little TB mare, ST, that I've been working with barrels/games on. We're still only at the canter/trot stage because she doesnt have the coordination to spin around a barrel at a run (or even a canter) yet. The one "trainer" always laughs at me because she isn't running yet (been working towards it since beginning of last year, but I'm not intending to have a winner right away..She's 12 or 14 and never cantered before last year, so I have no issue taking her even slower than I did the other horses. I know that if I get a good foundation on her and take it slow adding speed she'll be placing maybe in the next two years. A year isn't going to hurt a 4h horse, which is my ultimate goal for her. AfterI finally buy her (hopefully before fair this year) I plan to lease her out to a 4h kid (free lease, just pay for board) and get a project for myself to add. There's a few kids who need horses (dont have one and want to start riding projects) and I wanna help out with that in the next few years. I'm hoping to be able to get into something at the business end of it so I can still get the 4h experience I never had. :p

This was my old guy I just had to put down last fall. He was only 14 and he'd recently found a 1D gear he didn't know he had. Boo. He wasn't necessarily bred for barrels (Mr World / Sonny Dee Bar stallion crossed with a Three Bars / Coys Bonanza mare) and was actually a paint, but he was a big boy at 16.1 hands and he loved running!
Ravishing Beau Paint

This is my current horse, Red, that I bought last May. He's a 2006 AQHA gelding, just under 15.2 hands, but very stoudt! (Texas High Dasher / Jet Deck stallion crossed with a Paprika Pine / Boston Mac mare) We're recovering from a back leg injury at the moment since he decided to tear his left hock down to the tendon and joint capsule ...... but it looks like it will heal up with time. He was just barely starting to lope the pattern. He's pretty hot-natured and needed a lot of miles this past summer, but he's coming along.
Saltys Red Rock Quarter Horse

And my up-and-coming prospect is Shotgun, a 2011 AQHA gelding. He is going to be BIG when he grows up. He's not even 2 yrs old yet, and he's close to 14.3 hands. I have high hopes for this man, as his siblings are doing VERY well on the professional rodeo circuit in barrels. (Mr Illuminator stallion crossed with a Country John Red / Laughing Boy mare) And he is SO laid back! He's got a wonderful easy-going personality, which is a nice change up from "the energizer bunny" Red.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I've got one that knows her job and one I'm working on. Moon is my experienced barrel mare. Rascal is my greenie. I'm no expert and just play at local stuff, but hey, we chase cans so that makes these guys MY barrel horses. And you know, at almost 40 years old, I'm not anywhere close to slowing down yet.

Moon cut her foot on barb wire this summer so here she is styling her tiger stripes. She made a miraculous recovery and we're back at it.

Rascal was given to me at 8 years old after being rescued. Numerous "experienced" people had tried to start him late under saddle and he bucked like a pro rodeo bronc. He was dubbed "psycho". Well...here's my "psycho" now. It's been a long 3 years but he's now loping barrels and we're playing with poles as well.
