When looking for a barrel prospect, I look for confirmation (age-dependant of course) and for bloodlines. However, I do still consider their training and their personality, as this is a horse I need to get along with. I also consider height. I personally like a long-strided larger horse as I can ride those best in a pattern. That preferance will vary from person to person.
What are her bloodlines?
How tall is she?
Conformation-wise, she doesn't look too bad. Her shoulder is a tad steeper than I like, and her back appears to be just a tad long in comparison to her neck and "back end". And I'd like to see her hindquarter just a bit more rounded. But she has nice straight hocks, low to the ground. And built hindquarters for power needed.
Overall, she looks like she would make a barrel prospect, based on conformation. Not the absolute best conformation I've ever seen, but not bad.
