So I got my mare Abby in mid-September. Keep in mind, I did not buy her with competitive barrel racing in mind. I figured I would teach her the pattern and that would be it.
However, a couple of my friends might start racing next summer and I am thinking of joining them, but I'm concerned about Abby's pasterns.
I'm pretty sure the pictures I have aren't the best for judging them, but they're all I have for right now.
Basically, I am wondering about the angle of her front pasterns for barrel racing.
Don't mind her expression in the second picture either, she was nervous about the sound of the shutter on my Nikon.
