    You'll probably be fine. I doubt it'll be a major major problem to where it effects her performance so much that it makes her lose a class. Like I said, my friends horse is built just like that and does great!

    Long backs are also a sprinting trait, so what you lose in one area you may gain in another. The back is only a touch longer so not a concern at any rate.

    Traits include longer limbs, slight upright blade and pasterns, shallower girth, importantly a resonably strong functional hind, higher head carriage and shorter cannons.

    Lowered wither no problem for barrels.

    Has above average barrels potential.

    Ok I am sorry but could you explain what you meant by those traits? Are you saying that's what she has or that's what comes with a long back? Or what are you saying?? Haha sorry :/

    The first paragraph relates to the effect of a longer back on a horse's stride as I believe you enquired in an earlier post.

    All information under that relates to traits that it appears your horse possesses by the photo (which is not ideal so use as a guide only).

    Has her front end caught up to her back end as a four year old? I know nothing about barrel horses, but I do know that riding a horse that is built downhill isn't terribly comfortable. Other than that she looks good!

    I would want to watch her move rather than see just a picture. She's very cute and nothing about her screams "I will never run barrels!". She looks like a nice girl. But with seeing movement, you can judge how well she can get her back legs under herself, which would be important with a barrel horse.
