My new Mountain Pleasure horse mare seems to have a lot of go, whether out on a trail or in pasture. She truly loves to work. So i'v been considering showing her at some local shows. Honestly Mountain horses are NOT very popular in my area at all, if there even heard of.
So I was considering showing her in a few speed events, like barrels or key hole or something along those lines. I wanted to ask how well gaited horses do in speed events? I'm not going out to rack up the points or anything, just for fun and see what she thinks of it. I have noticed she does good around cattle, we'll see where it goes. She has a lot of potential, i'm just not sure what to do with it all LOL.
