    That mare is very well worth $4,500 especially if she is young. Barrel horses are really expensive, and that mare is really well trained if she is young. It takes a lot of work to get a young horse to side pass like that horse did. She has great conformation. I just bought a barrel mare also. Are you going to do barrels with her?

    I'm thinking of doing barrels, but I don't know yet. I actually want to do cutting, but isn't that a "man" sport? Like, women aren't allowed to be in cutting competitions? I really like some of those horses spastic_dove, but they are too small for me. I need a 15hh+ horse, I'd look silly on anything shorter than that(I'm 5'8",180lbs). I do like the grey gelding a lot, but is a little more seasoned than I planned xD. I REALLY like the appy though, do you think she would be too small for me?

    So its a no for the 4 y/o? I really like her, and with the proper care, I think she might make a good horse... but I do agree with you guys on the price, I could probably get a more experienced barrel horse for a lot less(not a finished one of course, just with a little more barrel work).

    Some of the best cutters are women. ;) I am sure that you would look fine on any stocky horse over 15 hh, it is more a matter of preferance. Good luck in your search.

    Cutting is not limited to men at all. There are many women who compete in it. Unfortunately cutting is a very expensive dicipline and requires an expensive horse. (if you want to do well nowadays)

    Barrel racing is more user friendly since the 4D format was introduced. Entry fees arent too bad.

    I was selling (Until I realized I didnt want him going to a teenager/wannabe cowboy) my 1D barrel horse. When he is in shape he runs consistantly in 1D times and I always get a check. He also does trail and I have been doing western pleasure and other show stuff with him. I was selling him for 3500 to an approved home in Montana.
    Finished or at least patterned barrel horses are out there.

    Cutting is very expensive but I wouldn't let being a girl hold you back. I've ridden a few cutting horses and they're a completely differant experience IMO. Lots of fun so if you could, go for it.

    When I get the chance, I will look some taller horses =P
