"Too Small to Barrel Race" <--- Show Me Your Teensies!

Everyone has been telling me that my teensie tiny barrel horses couldn't possibly be competitive....And of course I resent that! I've never had a bigger barrel horse. My three year old is 16hh and growing though. I should just shun him Little brat doesn't give any consideration to his owner who's only 5'2'' . Pssh.

Anyway, I wanna see those teensie barrel horses!

Here's mine. Baileys With A Twist if the first mare in green. She is 14.2hh on a good day with shoes on.

And then here is Selena aka Leana Little who is in her first week of barrel training after being a reiner/cowhorse all her life. It's not going to be hard to get her going. She already lopes a nice pattern just with her previous training as a reiner. She stands at a whopping 13.3hh

Whoever says short horses can't compete is crazy, I run and place on my short horses... Both of my mares are right around 15.2, 15.3...Hickory is a whole 14.1 hands and he's as fat as he is tall..

Hickory on the right, Nikki on the left



My whole little crew.



And just for laughs! This was me playing on Hickory yesterday..He's such a nerd.

I can't attach a pic at the moment because I am on my phone but I have a pic of my guy in my avatar if you wanna take a look. He is 14.3 and solid. He runs just as fast if not faster than those big ol brutes. He just has to move his feet a bit faster. Also small is good when running in a small arena. The big guys can't stretch their legs and get going like the little ones can. Little horses always seem to have more heart too, like they have something to prove.

They are full of crap. I've know two ponies in my life that could compete with the big horses, and beat them! I wish I had pics of them, but since neither of them were mine, I don't. One of them would run poles in 20 seconds, nearly every time he ran. Both of them were capable of a sub 13 second pattern in a small arena, and sub 15 in a big arena. Small horses can't run, my butt!

One of my friends who I go to shows with has a little pony who is only 12h tall. She may not be the fastest in the world but she holds up against the big horses! On a large pattern she runs 19 seconds! It may sound crazy but the little girl can move her feet! I'll try to find a picture of her. She is very cute too!

The POA was 13.3, a was unbeatable when I had him. He ran against 16+hh horses and could kill them. He ran a 17.6 large cloverleaf pattern, just missed the arena record by 2 tenths of a second. He actually had some arena records when I got him. Pretty cool pony!

The liver chestnut is only 14.1 hands. She is a 1D barrel and pole horse.

I'm only 5'2".

Buddy, my former welsh QH cross. I kinda trained him to do anything. He's sold to a young girl who uses him in 4H.

He's under 14 hands.
