I had one I had to do a lot of trot and hill work cause he would constantly be stifled so we had to do a lot of strength training. Anyways I'm not sure if those joints would hold up well in barrel racing. And usually you want to ride something with a lil longer neck and big powerful hind quarters cause that's where your horses engine is and you want fast movements and quick propulsion. But anyways he is super cute I wish there more Morgan's like him instead of the Arab crossed one I like the big stocky ones better personally. And I love his coloring and dapples.

He's alright at barrels, but he spooks at everything! Lol. But, yeah barrels was ruining his stifle(his stifle is his one weak joint). And yes he's gaited(he paces). But I have a chiropractor for him and now he's good. And thanks!! I might be able to upload a video of a run of ours soon.
