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!
