If its just small local events and you are not expecting too much then I see no problem. Used to know a 24 year old horse that barrel race and was easily winning still.

If she's in good condidtion I think she'll be fine. It take about 3-4 years to get REALLY good at it but it mainly depends on the horse. I say go for it

I agree. Just make a right decision on when to retire her.

If she has no major health issues that are going to put in her pain from the gaming, as long as she enjoys it I see no problem starting your 15 year old on barrels for the fun and local shoes.

Have a good time with it! Just take care of her and make sure she is always good condition, because she is starting to get up in age. Take plenty of time to warm her up and cool her down, and of course, keep her in shape.
