What do you think of this mare?

Seriously considering selling my horse & buying another.
I was looking around a little & this one caught my eye.

What do you think of her
could she be a pontential barrel racer?

Lovely Buckskin & White Paint Mare *video*

She doesn't have the powerful hindquarters that I would look for, but her front end looks cute. The only thing that is turning me off is the price. $900 for a cute horse with no problems riding? Something sounds suspiciously too good to be true to me, but maybe I'm just cynical.

Oh, I watched the video attached to the ad. Now I understand why she's $900. You'll have to undo most of what her rider has taught her. She looks like a barely broke horse that has a good disposition not to toss her rider.

I would pass. You can find something better. A lot of horses on the market these days are cheaper than they should be. You can find something with a better hind end. Barrel racers need that rear of theirs to dig into the ground.

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