    Pretty sure tire pressue has an effect on the perfornace of all vehicles, regardless of make or model.

    Anyway, posters can only give very limited advice if limited information is given. If you're unwilling to post a photo, perhaps your horse should be seen by a vet and evaluated.

    But I'm not showing you a pic because I think you're snotty.
    Just guess and be bloody helpful.
    Just put a little air only in the bottom of your tire as the rest is probably round enough.

    Is anyone else wondering if both these new people are the same person? I just... get that impression. Completely baseless, you could call it a gut feeling.

    Onto the actual question, just in case I'm wrong or someone else runs across it and cares about the answer. If the leg is not correct, the animal should not be doing high impact sports. Cutting, reining, barrels and gaming are all high impact Western disciplines. Showjumping, eventing, Prince Phillip mounted games [English gaming - tons of fun on a speedy pony, but really hard on a horse!], eq over fences and hunter over fences are all high impact English disciplines. Anything that puts a lot of stress on the leg. Dressage can be "high impact" too, in its own way, though is usually harder on the hind legs and back than the front legs. Campdrafting, polo, polocrosse... others I'm sure.

    A leg with a flaw such as being "curved inwards" [implies knock-kneed] is weaker and far more prone to injury. I will accept a leg that is a little forward at the knee, but never back. Never knock-kneed or bow-legged, and never bench-kneed [that's offset knees, to anyone who doesn't know]. I ride English but I know well the stresses put on the leg in barrel racing with those quick tight turns at high speed.

    Say it with me, people! Legs are vital. Without a good leg, it doesn't matter how good the rest of the horse is. You're going to break it down if you push it to excel in a high impact sport.

    One of them has been banned, so your gut feeling may have been correct.

    I agree that pictures would help. It's really difficult to assess anything based on just a description, but I'm kind of with the others here. High impact sports are hard on joints, even more so if that joint isn't formed quite right, so you're taking your chances for injury. On the other hand though, if you only plan on participating occasionally in these types of events, you might be just fine.

    Lololol wow. All I have to say is if the OP doesnt want to post a picture, than most likely the horse is in danger. He leg is probably far worse than what they make it out to be and the OP might be afraid to hear the harsh sides of her barrel horse.
    I barrel race, and if our horses leg has to much flexibility, take it off the pattern. That's asking for tragedy.
