You wouldn't barrel race a Clydesdale
Someone did.

LOL... That was awesome!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Geez! That's great and I think it definitely proves that training is key. Thanks for all the advice!

? It's not hard to canter a horse around 3 barrels and then back home Any horse that's broke to ride can run barrels like the Clydesdale did...don't think it's "training" 8)

You can train any horse to do any discipline. Do you have to be so negative about everything? Really.

I don't think its fair to assume the rider didn't work with the clydesdale, I mean really it takes time to teach a horse anything...if you put a clydesdale or quarterhorse infront of three barrels and said run do you think they'd do it? Furthermore if you were on their back and they'd never run the clover pattern do you think they'd run it well?

You're absolutely right. You don't put a QH in front of 3 barrels and except it to know what to do.
I have a welsh pony that could give a qh a run for its $$ if I put a little bit more time into teaching him, but I'm leaning more toward making him a "children's pony" as that's what everyone wants in a smaller pony. Though I'd much rather barrel race him and do games and jumper shows. =]

I had an Arabian mare that I used to barrels for a few years, and she absolutely loved it.
Totally kicked butt, until we retired her.

Along with right training, conformation does play a bit of a role in determining how good (not that it can't do) it will excell in some events.

I really do like the Quarab crosses, as well as Morab (Morgan/Arabian) crosses. With each, the other breed compliments the other very well.

It all depends, I think... Any horse can do anything if it's trained right, just perhaps not as well as other's. :)

Good luck in your search, and I do hope you find what you're looking for!
