I have an eight year old quarter horse mare and I'm Getting ready to barrel race her but her left front leg curves or bends inward a little and I don't know if I should worry about it or Not...? Otherwise her confirmation is good

I would suggest watching some slow motion barrel runs on youtube and assessing for yourself whether the mobility needed to do that sport is within your horses ability or not. Good luck!

Could you show us pictures of the mare and especially the leg in question?

And just a note. It is confOrmation and not confirmation.
