Looking for a good barrel prospect

Hi, so I have been barrel racing since I was like 5 years old, and would like to get another horse seeings how I only have yearlings now and want to run my own horse, I can't afford to buy a seasoned barrel horse which is no problem because I have trained

Barrel horses before. But I was wondering what you guys thought of the different breeds do you think that other horses besides Quarter horses and throughbreds could make wining times?

I run appaloosas, so I would say YES! But a lot of the appy barrel horses have a lot of QH and TB in them. Paints are another good option to look at. I guess a lot of it has to do with how competitive you want to be, and on what kind of circuit. I just got my 5 year old appy mare to the point where I can send her off to the trainer for her barrel/pole foundation, and I picked her up for under $1500. I have a friend who is a "breed snob" and he tells me all the time how great a horse she will turn into. He wouldn't mind owning her, so I know she's good, LOL.

I agree apps, paints, appendix quarters and quarters all are great options just depends where you want to go. Also depends on your budget, I found quite a few well bred, barrel started quarter horses for under 4000 unluckily for me they are all way out of my traveling range.
