She's cute :) How old is she?
The first thing I noticed are her pasterns, and how long they are- my sister's mare has pasterns like hers, and we had to get supports for them, but other than that, she was a good gymkana horse for local, non-competitive shows. I bet she'll have some smooth gates, which would make her a nice relaxing trail horse.
She has a nice hind end, and downhill build- I think that over all, she's going to have a good turn and good acceleration/ sprinting, which is what you need for doing gymkhana events like barrels. The problem is how weak her pasterns are... kind of scary.
She does have a weak build, but I think she'll be a good barrel horse, or gymkhana horse, at lower levels/ local competitions, non- competitive, with supports and good shoeing. I don't think she'd be the horse you need if you're looking to get really into barrels and such, though.
Can you post a video of her? :)
Oh. And as for her sister, that horse will make a nice barrel horse. She doesn't have a weak build at all- She's compact, too, so she'll probably have speed, and a nice hind-end, which is what matters. I actually would never have realized that the two horses were related. I can see the second horse doing roping, too.
