So my 2 year old paint filly (will be 3 in the end of January) is quite spunky and likes to move. She's done light to moderate trail riding and arena work this year. She really likes to "go" - She trailers well, rides great in group or alone with me along a highway, had tons of desensitizing done since last winter, extensive ground work, is very smart and willing horse, she really likes to work and ride.. she is acting more mature then many horses way older than her that I know of.. Since she is going to be 3 years old soon I want to see what discipline I should take her starting next spring.. I would like to compete with her at some level, really for fun and make her an all around horse. She did work cattle once this summer a little bit and it seemed natural to her (she comes from cutting QH / APHA lines). However to go to the nearest "cow practice I do have to drive her about 1 1/2 hours . I was thinking maybe she would like to barrel race??, because she likes to run.. but really would like to see if you folks think there is something her conformation suggests? I am learning about conformation, but am by far no expert in judging that..
Is there anything you guys can tell that would suggest her being more suitable for one discipline over other?
I snapped a video of her after we got back from trail ride yesterday:

Please point out cons and pros. - her back looks a little long to me, but I have notices many cutting bred horses do have back like that.. she is a comfortable ride even though she is only 14.1HH at this point
