    Last I heard you were selling Diamond to take riding lessons? Otherwise if you're looking for a horse for beginners to ride out at your house on trails and etc... probably the first one or the Tennessee Walker (I've had them and they are generally very nice horses).

    OK... I'm going to pretend I am your trainer with this response so please don't get offended. It's not an attack.

    I feel like you should keep Diamond. He's calm and willing and really a great mount to learn the basics on. You know how to climb on a horse and make it go, but you haven't learned alot of the hows and whys, which means you'll never become great at anything (YET). So my thoughts are, you sell ROWDY. And I'll tell you why. He's a gaited horse and you want to do barrels and speed. You need something that is short and compact and built for quick turns and stops. Rowdy is not the horse to do the things YOU want to do. He's a great horse, don't get me wrong, but if you really want to do the speed events, then he's the one that needs to go for now.

    My other comment is No to all of the horses you picked. The Walker because he's a gaited horse built for hours on trail but not for the barrels scene. The first QH I love but it's a quiet mount for a pleasure ride, you are looking for an eventer. Now believe it or not, an eventer (speed) does NOT have to be high strung or spirited. I've seen barrel horses that are the quietest in the barn, but they knew and loved their jobs. And they were GOOD at it!

    So, this is not an attack. It's me pretending to be a trainer and trying to help you move towards a goal.....

    I agree keep Diamond, sell Rowdy and take lessons,then if you still feel the need start looking but look for something older and very calm.

    So have you found an instructor yet?

    Now I'm goofing off. I'm not crazy about this one, but it's closer to what you need as far as build and ability:

    This one is probably way out of your price range but I like it:

    Faygo Red is pretty, but did you read his description?

    "Faygo is a very cute, 14.3 stocky pinto gelding. He has a baby face and is looking for a new home. His owner originally bought him to train on her own. But, he ended up being too much for a thirteen yr old owner to do on her own. He has had one other person besides her ride him and did very well. They walked, trotted and cantered. Faygo is 3 going on 4 and loves to give kisses. The last time we had feet done was January 5th with no problems. He is sensitive to his ears and he we believe has been abused at one point in his life. He loads and trailers with no problems. He grooms and bathes no problems. Basically Faygo has trust issues; he gets nervous/scared with quick movements especially when mounted. But does very well on the ground, and lunges nicely. Faygo is the lowest on the totem pole in the pasture. We have come a long way since we have had him, but just needs sacking out."


    Are you going to send him to a trainers if you do decide to get him? And I don't think he would make a good barrel horse if he gets very nervous. lol:
