    Your stallion sems very upright in his front pasterns. I am not a barrel racer, but they would concern me for any sort of impact sport.

    Stallions are pretty much accepted any where as long as you are 18 or over. Thank you everyone for your comments I am going to start him slowly he has a decent reining foundation already. We are in no hurry. I also have a cute little mare I might start too see which one turns out to be more competitive.
    This is her.

    I personally like her better :) She looks more agile.

    I really like her too, she does fit the "barrel racing" look more so than the stallion..Honestly I like both a lot, I'm not sure which I'd go with in the end, I don't know them personally so I'm not sure of either of their temperments, training ability, physical ability, or mind set..

    I actually like thicker horses so I'm a little partial to them. How tall is he? Age?

    My gelding is a QH, and my mares are appendix registered. Nikki is built more like a TB with some narrow features where as Lark (Black mare) is built really wide, and then Hickory is a little brick house, very short and thick.




    You can see how Nikki (Left) is built narrower then my other two.

    Here you can see just how wide Lark is.

    These aren't the best pictures but they're the best I have with me right now.
    Thanks for posting the photos! Love your horses and boy are they hefty. Was giggling a bit at you referring to Nikki as narrow......but you are right, she is built narrower if you don't count her girth :P Your horses look very happy!!

    But we all know Hickory is the widest of them all....

    At least she didnt say Hickory was narrow. Lmao! We'd all be scratching our heads in confusion...

    I think he should do fine! The horse I ride in lessons is a gooood barrel horse and trust me he can turn and he's huge. Just do a lot of flexibility exercises :)
