New Barrel Prospect!

Just wanted to introduce everyone to my new girl! She is a 4 year old Paint/QH. She is registered as a solid paint. Her Registered name is ImpressMeGorgeousGirl, AKA- Diva. She is 14.3 hands high right now and still growing! She is dark bay and almost black in the winter. A friend of mine bred her and was hoping to use her as a pleasure horse but she turned out to be the complete opposite of what she wanted. I had just bought a QH to train on barrels that turned out to be an awesome pleasure horse. Sooo...we did and even trade! She was trained by my trainer 3 months ago. She is an awesome horse! We are hoping to start her on barrels next spring!

Does anyone have any ideas for what color tack I should put her in?







These two are of her as a two year old.

Very cute little mare, good looking to. For colors I say anything bright is going to make her coat pop.

^^ Yup, that's what I would say. Pink, lime green, orange, turquoise, etc and bright colors will really stand out against her dark color.

Nice, quiet-looking mare.

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

I think lime green, neon blue, or even turquoise would look good on her!

Thanks! She is the quietest and most responsive 4 year old I've ever ridden! She is at the trainer for another week but I can't wait to get her home and really ride her more! I am thinking I want to do her in bright pink or turquoise! Maybe even a bright purple if I can find a good one!

She is super cute! Congrats! as for colors, i agree with 1RedHorse, white would be very classy! Especially all white splint boots and bells. Although for colors she would look very pretty in a bright royal blue, reds, bright pinks, or turquoise!

Have fun with her!

If you aren't scared, you aren't running fast enough!

She cute! Love her little face marking (think its a snip?)!
For colors....I actually love the white idea, but of you wanted a color I'd go for purple or turquoise!

Gorgeous! Lucky girl. I'd say anything jewel toned would look super amazing.
