Sometimes mean/aggressive horses make the best barrel horses ;)

Lol I hope so, I read an article in barrel horse world saying it was normally the horses with some problem that was the best horse. The ones that had some fight in them.

I'd say that she has the blood lines but for $2500.00 you can find and started barrel horse with a better build trust me. The horse market has taken a serious dive at least where I live in Oklahoma people are giving horses away. If I were in the market fot a barrel horse I would say No to this one based on her pictures.But if you looking for that dash for cash line its not a bad choice to be sure. I would keep my eye out for a stouter built horse they seem to handle the wear and tear of barrel racing better and I find they have a better center of gravity for taking sharp turns. Remember if your going to train a horse with a high strung nature take it nice and slow and don't rush. Here an example of a build I prefer this mare is named cowgirl I started to buy her for a potential barrel horse but my mare ended up being pregnant so Im hoping to make lil jet my next barrel horse now.

Look at cowgirls picture. This mare is a 4 year old aswell. Notice cowgirls slightly higher hips, stout build, strong legs, and nice muscle tone. Cowgirl may still be for sale if your looking for a horse and you live near oklahoma if your interested I could find out if you liked her.

I have a two year old that's short and stocky, she's also level though. Its not the Dash For Cash lines, its Bedunio, Coup De Kas, Streakin Six, Easy Jet, all of it being in her lines. I think she's cheap considering she has all that in her. Barrel horses are still a good price here. I've been looking at a 4 year old bay colt, already started. He's bred nice too, but not that nice. He's only a 1,000 more. Im sure she would fill out some, since she's only 4. And I've trained them on barrels before, I always go slow. These would just be mine to keep, my filly and whatever else I get.

Really no one is going to agree on a horse, I like the bay, I like the looks of this girl. Both built very different, he's a tank she's racing built. I honestly see both builds winning at shows. Im not sure what id prefer, probably whichever I get along with more. Idk I want to ride the bay again and take him through a set and then see this mare.

Just looks for somethng solid that you just fall in love with. Your stocky easy jet mare could possibly have potential those are nice sport horse bloodlines. But bloodlines don't necessarily make the horse better. One of the best barrel horses I ever rode was an unregisted ugly red quarter horse with one eye. I used to do junior rodeos with her when I was in my teens and when then man who taught me to barrel race told me to ride her in competion I thought he was crazy. I think I won or placed evey single time with her. Let me tell you I hand to hold on to my seat with that mare she was amazing. She's old and retired now but she was a top notch barrel horse.

MY filly is Doc Bar and Top Moon bred, not Easy Jet lol you must have read that wrong. The grey mare has all these bloodlines. Breeding doesn't mean everything, but those are proven lines and if I have the money im going to buy a horse with proven lines. She might be a complete dud but if so least she would be easy to resale if needed, which I would hope everything will work out with whatever I buy. Really I have 4 picks I like, I don't think one is built the same or bred the same. Might post the other two just for opinions.

I don't like Cowgirls build at all. Straight shoulder...back at the knee...weird back pasterns...upright pasterns on the front.

The Beduino mare isn't built perfect either, but I'd take her over the mare you posted in a heartbeat.

SS horses are slow to fill out and mature this girl will bulk up.

There's no way in he'll you can get a QUALITY started horse for 2500.

Thank you! Also looks downhill, which bothers me in a horse if its really noticeably.
Im quite taken with the little mare, she's a mare (me and mares tend to be better matches), I love her pedigree, and to top it off she's a pretty color ;) I just want to go see her... sol long of a drive to her though XD bleh
