Critique Her Conformation for Barrel Racing, Please?
 
2 Attachment(s)
She's a 13 year old (dark) bay Thoroughbred. Doesn't have the height of a Thoroughbred though. More the size and build of a Quarter Horse. She's not registered. She's a professionaly trained barrel horse. I won't be doing big-time barrel racing with her, just local shows and stuff and although I would like to win sometimes, :D, I'm not going to be super-competitive. Could you just critique her confirmation as a barrel horse? These are all the pics I have. It kind of looks like her body slopes downward in the second pic but I think she's standing on unlevel ground? I'm not good at confirmation AT ALL! So any help or input is greatly appreciated :)

Do you own her or are you thinking of buying?

Thinking of buying her :)

I guess if she's a trained barrel horse & likes it then she'd be good for that.
I do see an enlargement on her left rear pastern area that could be a concern for soundness. Have a vet check her before you buy as no matter how well she is trained she needs to be sound.

We need actual conformation photos which are side shots, front shot and back shot without tack.

That enlargement actually looks like the hoof on her right hind :lol:
