Smile citique my barrel racing horse

she is 8 years old and is registered paint

Foxys High N Dry Paint


Her name is foxys high n dry tell me what you think {respectfully please}
She was out from september 2010 to march 2011 so she is out of shape and down on muscle so that's why she looks reallly out of shape. Before she got hurt she was running 16s on barrels and 20s on poles, now that she getting back in to back into it she is running 17.3 on barres [witch is still a good time in arizona where I live} and a 21 on poles. I do gymkana but I am starting high school rodeo this year, they are still good times but I want her running like how she use to and please give me tips on how to get her running like how she use to because there are some fast times in high school rodeo but anyways tell me what you think!

She has a long back, an upright shoulder, her neck doesn't tie in well. That's what I notice right off. Im sure better conformation critiques can be made from others. Still runs a decent pattern given her faults.

I'm no barrel racer but from what I see she is really long back and a weak loin. I don't really like the way her neck ties in and I also see a very upright shoulder. It could be the way she standing but there is something about her front legs i'm not crazy about. I do how ever love her sweet face. I'm sure there are other people on here that could give a better critique.

the good thing about the long back is that she streches far when she runs!! But she she does good patterns for being built so awkwardly don't ya think

Yeah I would say she runs good for the way she is built but I don't know much about barrels.
