    I'm honestly not following as well as I should be. I've been horses with way worse conformation compete, and to great in speed competitions.

    Barrel racing is a gamble....a horse built like that is more of a gamble. Sure she could be successful but why risk it? I'd keep looking.

    If you're spending money, why spend it on okay confo, when you can spend it on good confo? Horses are cheap nowadays, and the prices are only going to go up. I bought two fillies this year for really cheap because I know that when prices go up, I wouldn't be able to afford them.

    Keep looking.

    The filly I bought looks similar to the bay you posted! Except she's coming 1.5, not 4... so there's a little less mass to her.

    They don't have similar breeding either... jeesh.

    I got her for $750, and she has great confo. I also got another well bred filly for $750. She also has nice confo.

    Just examples of quality horses you can get for the price of not so nice ones.

    It's hard finding any good barrel prospects with the price range I'm in right now.

    Understandable...perhaps save a little and keep looking?

    With all the money time and effort youll be putting into the horse don't settle for anything less than what you want. Been there done that...almost quit riding.

    You wouldnt believe what I paid for my 2 year old...Ive been offered 4x what I paid since I bought him. Those horses are out there. If you were close to LA I could sell you a nice FWF palomino gelding for $1500

    When you're looking for horses, they don't have to have "BARREL PROSPECT" all over their ads. Look at the horse first, look at it's confo. I see a lot of horses advertised at barrel prospects just to get more people looking and to make the horse seem to be worth more money.

    Up here, I saw really nice, well bred 2 year olds going for $1000 and under. I don't see what more you can ask for! The fillies I bought for $750 were the high sellers of their age group! Some long yearlings went for $250.

    Where are you located? We could help you look for something near you...
