    Currently trial, but most likely a buy.

    I have looked him up and he's ran over backs 10-15 races that my phone lets me see. I'm not sure, ill definitely get everything looked at.

    OP, can I ask why you didn't look into Cutting Horse bloodlines? And see what a trainer in that area had for sale? They are bred to sit and turn hard, they have the ideal bone, musculature and mind set to make an exteemly good barell horse. The only downside I can see is they might be a bit spendy, but the horse should last you 30+ years and be in the ribbons.

    Around here, they ask 5k for a horse that's just green, horrid conformation. And personally there aren't many breeders out here. Most horses out here are grades or bought at an auction. I don't have the finance to buy a horse to far from me that aren't allowed to trial. Racing bred can be a barrel racing horse, I know a few out here that are very successful in the arena.

    The ads you are looking at are from the Houston and Katy area. I'm from the Katy area also.
    Have you looked at the Facebook groups "Texas Horses for sale"? Or "horses in texas for sale"?
    Some are real hit or miss but I have seen a couple on there that are worth a look.
    A LOT of barrel horses on there also. Some have questionable conformation, but some look pretty nice...just gotta look. Only thing I don't like about the groups is there is a lot of repeat people selling horses...?? :)
    Cheap prices on a lot of decent looking horses also. Most of the people are down for haggling or trades, especially when their horse doesn't sell like they think it will. Have also seen a few of them open to payments or trades. Might be worth a browse if you have a Facebook account.
    Not all of the horses are in houston area, but some are in the surrounding areas.

    Sounds like there are more HF people in our area than I thought! Interesting!

    OP, how is your trial gelding going for you? Is he a winner?

    I absolutely love that he is a challenge. Since he is off the track and hasn't been taught anything he needs for outside disciplines, he needs to be taught basically everything. Foot commands, flexing, crossing over, sitting on his rear end, and so forth.
    On the ground he's a charm and does it all you ask, but i'm guessing his mouth is very sensitive and he doesn't like his bit. SO when I ask on saddle, he gets very frustrated and confused.
    Time will help.
    If he doesn't have a breathing problem we may get him, He's got a lovely attitude and is extremely willing to learn. He despised backing up two days ago, and today he backs up beautifully.
    Not sure if he's a winner yet, I'm watching his movement tonight on camera to see how he moves. Earlier out in pasture he had a bit of funky movement.

    Good. When you're experienced, the cleaner the slate the better. Less kinks to iron out from faulty training.

    Agreed, he's something i've never worked with before and i'm in love with the way he rides. I just got back from working him in a nice arena with lovely ground, I believe Saturday this horse will officially be mine.
    He tries so hard to do what I ask, he's a pleaser.
