grade quarter horse mare

Alright so my moms friends have offered me this mare for 700. She is Grade 16 yrs old. Used for hunting,mountain trail rides and general riding I believe. She is atleast 15.2-15.3 I believe however I haven't measured her to find out. Chocolate palomino in the winter golden in the summer. She is very cute but now my question is , I know this picture isn't great, do you think she would do good in gymkhana/barrel racing? I would also use her for general riding if I decided to go with her but what do you guys think?

I don't see why not. Her neck looks funky to me but could just be the angle. Love her color!

I have to check around I had another couple of photos of her hah. She is quite out of shape right now due to them not having time to work her. I'll try and find those other pictures.

I figured she's out of shape. I'm sure her neck has probably little muscle so if you decide to get her I'm sure with more muscle it won't look so wonky :)

Yup I don't see why she couldn't do them. She could just gain some muscle and loose that hay belly and shed be golden

Ya she will definitely be put into a weekly routine and on a diet haha she is thick in general though. I'm only looking because I found out my back injury is actually a fracture and my boy now has lately been a little much for it to handle. So if she turns out to be level headed enough and the right fit I might go for her :]

I like her but would prefer to see another photo. Appears very goose-rumped with a neck that ties in very low (and is prone to being ewed). Not flattering, but shouldn't prevent her from being a decent barrel horse. Nice legs on her.

She looks like a decent skookum horse. Not perfect but far from flawed. I would ride her in gymkhanas.
