Think my Horse has Barrel Horse Conformation?

This is my 4 year old QH-Paint mare, Impressive N/N, and King bred and an average running speed of about 40 if not faster. She is athletic and and loves to run barrels and she cuts them TIGHT. She IS narrow chested however so she is able to cross over really well. She has long back legs and she pop up on her back legs real nice, and she reaches out with her front legs.
Jewels is 15 hands. Also very quick and catty.

Do you thing she could be a barrel horse prospect? Please say what you do and don't like about her conformation! Thanks everyone!

Sorry for her feet, she is WAY past overdue and my farriers are booked until this Tuesday. I have been trying to get her feet back up, and my Mom isn't helping.

She's very pretty. I am in no mind to be giving out confo critiques this late, but from a barrel racer's pov, I think the heart has so much more to do with anything than the conformation. If she has the heart to run and loves the barrels, you have your answer.Her pasterns look good, so I think she'd hold up well to a speed event with no problems. Again...no sleep = bad time giving a confor critque. Lol

Thank you so much! She really does have the heart, as soon as she sees the barrels even if she sees only one she wants to run around it, her ears perk and she gets really excited! I appreciate that, thank you once again.

She looks a little finely built in the lower half of her legs, but I don't think it will hold her back too much. I'm not super good on confo critiques but being a barrel racer I feel obligated xD

I think that since she has the heart I would pattern her and see what she can do. There is nothing blaringly wrong with her. I think she's pretty cute myself. Any horse can run levels, but it's the heart and training that decides what caliber they can run at.
