    Would he be ok for some light barrel racing? He's a long yearling. Im not riding him yet but I would like to in the future.

    Hard to judge at this age, but from what I can see from his bone structure, he has a decent shoulder on him
    Holds his head low and it needs muscle but that should come with time
    Front legs look OK, but again, hard to really tell until he is a bit older
    Possibly slightly cowhocked and his one front hoof appears to toe out in that first photo.
    As far as ability goes, nothing terribe is standing out to me but it comes down to more than physical build as to whether the horse will excel at a particular sport or not.

    He looks a bit pigeon-toed, but that could be both the ground and his age. They are impossible to get good confo shots at that age! Haha
    His neck is small, but he should fill out more as he gets weight and muscle with age.

    Thanks but I thought a horse has pigeon toes when the toes point inward?
    (I googled this pic- its not mine.)
