my new tn walker mare!

This is my new 2 yr old tn walker mare that I just got about a month ago.her name is motowns majorette and im really wanting her to try barrel racing and trail riding, im going to try and show her some too.what id really like to know is if she would be good for the job im asking.i think that she looks like a quarter horse but she has a very smooth gait.shes got 1 world grand champion on her list including I might get to take better pics sometime tomorow if it doesnt snow.oh and I traded her for the quarter horse on my avatar on my members page because I wanted somethin broke.

She does not look like a tn walker but she is only 2yo. She's cute, no critique

She is two and broke??
If so, give her a break and don't start her on barrels for quite a while, she's not ready for it.

As far as a critique, can you take some actual squared up critique shots? There is a sticky posted. From this, her back pasterns look really scary but I can't tell if that is just the photo or not since it's not as bad in the first shot. Her hind end looks kind of her butt just doesn't look like it fits right. But she's two and they all look bizzare..

Wow if you met her in person you'd never think she was a quarter the pics make her look like one but she's got some legs!shes around 16 hh and most of its all legs!these are just sloppy pasture pics tommorow if it don't snow ill get some more.

I know that most gaited horses are pretty sturdy and it said somewhere that they could be started around 2. But she's already broke at two??? Don't work her too hard because she's not ready for that.

You traded another horse for a broke TWO year old????

You traded another horse for a broke TWO year old????

Yeah because my other horse that I traded her for was a bronc and I got tired of messing with him.he was broke at one time but turned wild.he was around 6 years old so he was a little bit hopeless of trying to train him. Her birthday was may,23,2006 so she'll be turning 3 soon.

What makes you think that at 6 the other horse was unable to be trained?
I've know lots of people who turned totally unbroke horses into really nice ones at much older than that... just saying. I would not be riding her anytime soon if I were you. Two's just SO young to be already broke. Like others have said I'd give her a break for a while and just do groundwork or something.

Hopefully you can get proper photo's for critiquing soon too because we can't really do anything with these ones.

Totally agree with gillian ;]

I hope you make a wise choice and give the poor horse a break .

She's very cute, and it's not that bad for her to be broke/trained at two, as long as she gets a break in between ridings. My own two year old TWH colt (who will be three on March 23rd) is trained and gets ridden about once a month... I call him 'broke'... 'broke' is just a word, it could bean just walking and trotting... or more.

To me, it means walking,trotting, and cantering undersaddle, or at least knowing how to do those things... backing up, and stuff like that.

At any rate, she's a very cute TWH!
