This is cricket, 6yr old 16.1-16.2 hand registered breeding stock paint mare, sire was a paint dam is a race bred qh. She is going to be my barrel horse. She is pretty much a finished barrel horse, she just needs to be ran more. Im hoping to start taking lessons sometime this summer, so I don't have any pics or vids of me running on her yet. The last picture was taken in early may so she was still sheeding as you can see lol. But her colors are going to be turquoise.
My barrel horse is actually a pony, but she is 14.1 1/2 hh..Her name is Buttercup and she is 11. I think she's great because she doesn't get witchy before we run which is a big plus and she loves doing what she does. She also pole bends, does keyhole, flag races, and anything else you can think of that involves speed. She has also gotten 1sts in halter and pleasure classes.

Some pictures of my boy doing drill :)
I've been really lazy and he's not in shape at all for barrels (I've been trying to figure out this english thing...) but when he is, he's my little 1D horse who keeps me on my toes.
Ignore my funky riding in these...I was in massive amounts of pain.
He's out of commission on right now but is, without a doubt, my super star in the making. He's dripping with talent and has the mind of a good ole ranch horse. His future is going to be an exciting adventure.
He's my father's horse that I've started on barrels as my backup. So far he's been very consistant. (when I don't make mistakes) He's had two barrel races and won the 3D at one and the other... I over rode him. So considering, he's been a nice project.
