cross breeding a tb mare to a qh stallion

Just looking to get some opinions, I own a OTTB mare that had a pretty good career running sprint races. My gf has gotten into barrel racing and we were thinking of breeding my mare to get a barrel racer. Any thoughts of some good stallions to cross her with?
Thanks for ur time

I would suggest a reiner for a barrel baby. The best crosses for barrels are working blood x running blood.

I agree. A good reining horse or a cow horse crossed with a fast racing mare is just a wonderful cross. It's kind of all the rage right now too.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Haha she is fast we clocked her at just under 50mph at top which was reached in a short distance, some one told me a good cutting stallion would be good, tho I don't know many cutting breeders around here that would let their studs get crossed

Well I really adore Pale Face Dunnit, Spooks Gotta Gun, and Matt Dillion Dunnit...Not sure what your price range is though. lol

Yes that always comes into play. Right now we are looking at a local stud who's a son of a AQHA world champion, but in western pleasure and halter, do u think this would be a good cross

That is a totally differant field....Halter bred/pleasure horses often don't have the confo for barrels, or the speed or athleticism.

id suggest looking at one of the tons of available grade cross horses already available and old enough to start training. That are either being neglected or headed to slaughter.
Palomine, MsBHavin and MelissaAnn like this.

A quarter horse thoroughbred mix is great, My last mare was a qh/Tb cross and she was fast and agile. Used her for 3 day eventing.
