My barrel gelding was 14.2 and nothing like the huge horses everyone else rode at the playdays. He was so awkward compared. But he had an amazing heart and would run the others into the dirt.Note: This barbwire pasture is not my pasture, it was a temporary enclosure after they moved him on a river barge from a flood after the hurricanes.

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.
Thank you for the compliment on my horse! She is really fine in her legs, I use splint boots etc. all the protection to keep her safe! Hopefully, she worries me at times! I appreciate your critique.

Wow he is stunning, I love him...I can't tell too much on his size but his muscles give him away! :) That gives me some encouragement, everyone always runs my horse into the dirt, calling her a "bag of bones", I showed at a small race against some friends, and as it turns out she beat everyone by a few extra seconds. I want to go jackpot, and I have a barrel trainer, I just have to work up the courage to take my little mare there, for fear they're just going to make fun of her.

On size, don't let anyone tell you a small horse can't do it. My main mare, Selena, is a whopping 13.3hh and she has been on the barrel pattern for three months and is running 3D times. XD She was a finished reiner before that though so she caught on pretty fast.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
