Nice horse. But downhill, straight through the hocks.

Speed is not going to be her strong point. Turns will be difficult with a horse her size. She'll have a huge stride, though.

16 hh is BIG for a competitive barrel horse. For low level stuff, with proper training and conditioning, she may do alright. Being downhill will make it more difficult for digging in around a barrel and driving from behind though.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Goose rump is all that really stands out to me. I agree that she may have a hard time moving off her hind end. But I love barrels so I say give someone a run for their money. Good luck!

Oh, I was gonna say size shouldn't be a huge deal. I know a barrel horse almost 17hh that runs CONSISTENT 18s.

Size shouldn't matter; my 15.3hh girl runs them just fine, and she's a TB!

I love his coloring and dapples, his neck is also stunning. Nice shoulder and legs. Faults have already been pointed out. I like him a lot!
