actually, I do.. mine. With her english background, her poles are awesome, with her long legs and stride, we can get to the barrels in just a few strides. They are great! There is another ottb that goes to the play dates as well!

A lot of OTTBs go into barrels after being adopted.

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

mine does and he loves it. This boy thinks he is a quarter horse traped in a thoroughbreds body. He can pivot on his back, cow pen/sort you name it he can do it.
