Would Breeze make a good small show/rodeo barrel horse? She will be my first prospect and is 2 years old. Don't worry, I am not planning on breaking her until she is 3. If she is not good for Barrel Racing and reining (I will be doing that with her first) then what do you guys think she would be good in.
Breeze has tight turns, fast stops and is fast running around the pen. She is athletic and agile and has the looks.
I will be training Breeze myself. We have been coming along great. The only problem that we have... which I am working on, is lunging. Some days she is great, and the perfect horse, but some days she can buck and kick and jump, pinning her ears and squilling. She is not in pain, I know that, and we are working on it, other then that she:
-stays out of my space unless invited in
-has had a bareback pad on her back with sturrips hitting her side
-yeilds hind and fore quarters
-leads behind and by my side
-great leading in the open
-picks up feet
- we are working on ground driving (just waiting for some stuff to get here that I ordered
If she is suite to be a barrel horse, is their any training I can do right now, and in the spring, on the ground, like lunging around barrels, or anything else?
Here are pictures
These pics are not the greatest, but what do you think about conformation, looks, a prospect for anything?
If she is not suite to be a barrel prospect, I am okay with her being anything else in the western riding. I will not do english.
I will be entering her in halter and showmanship this summer in at least 4 shows. I will be brining her to rodeo, but not entering her in it.
