What do you think my new horse would be good at?

Ok, so, I just broke my morgan mare and I can't decide what event to do with her. She is great under saddle, I ride western but have been heading out on the trails in an australian stock saddle but I have had a big roping saddle on her and she could have cared less. She is stubborn, smart, and only seems to like me. She listens well and really has a love and respect for me (which is a mutual feeling between the two of us) I'm just not sure what western event to start her in. Right now she is in a pasture with two cows and she likes to harass them and make them run around. I've never had her at a full gallop but i've seen her at a canter around in the pasture and she is pretty fast. I'm attaching some pictures so you can see her build. Please let me know what you think.

Here is a link to 5 pictures of her, they are mostly side views so you can see her build: http://tinypic.com/useralbum.php?ua=eR6GjEo%2BSXD8RNdxRscYqQ%3D%3D

The pics don't work. Can you try another posting method of them?

Well I think its completely up to you. If you want to pen cows then it seems that she might enjoy that. Because since you say that ur horse has a deep respect and love for you and does well in any saddle id say that you could do anything you wanted.. Morgans are a great breed and I've seen them jump do barrels and anything else you can think of. I couldnt see the pics but if she has a short stocky look then she would probably be good at team penning or roping. If she has a short kind of slender and even body such as her neck isnt too long and neither is her back or rump then she would probably be great at the barrels although there is a certain body type that you want for the barrels.. If you would like to know more for starting her on the barrels id be more than happy to help :)

Ok, so in order for the link to work you have to copy and paste it. Sorry for the hassle.

She would probably do well in any cattle work, ie: team penning, roping, etc. I have a morgan x that has a very similar build that I do western performance classes with. If she is anything like him then she would do great in trail, horsemanship, pleasure, etc.

Looking at her build, I think she would do well in cattlework events. She seems a little long backed for barrels and a little long legged but you never know! If she likes the cows it kinda sounds like a 'born to be' situation!

I'm not sure. It doesn't show up as a website. I'll try something else, since it looks like someone has already viewed it. Must be me lol...that's not a suprise though.

Ok, I saw them. She's so cute!!!! I'd also like to second that she would be good at any cattle work, especially if that's what she likes to do, and so do you.

I really don't think there's any specific way to determine what a horse would be good at. The only way to work it out is to just get out there and do it. My little QH, is extremely halter/WP bred but he is by far the hackiest pony I've ever seen.

A good relationship with your horse should help you suceed in whatever you try.
