For the OP, you plan on marketing him as a barrel sire? Ask the 1D winners who are also bringing along their own prospects, not just the people riding started or made horses. Ask other breeders who have horses doing well and that you like.
Its ok to some extent to breed for what you like, but if you want to market a stallion, you need to go for what can produce winners and that can be a hard market to crack.

Very hard market, If his conformation is nice and his manners stay well, I will see what he gives me under saddle prospect wise. If I feel he doesn't have the speed, patience, or desire to finish a barrel pattern he'll definitely be cut.

In my area there are probably...two decent stallions to breed a barrel horse from. Over used stallions really, ones absolutely stunning, a nice black quarter horse stallion. Great handle on the barrels. Another is a crazy bay stallion. When I rode my paint stallion at local races, the bay one lunged at him.
Definitely not a stallion i'd consider competition....or much of an example to how stallions should act.

Most horses out here used in barrels are either grades that have what it takes to win money around these shows, or some registered horses farm trained by their owners and still have what it makes. The industry out here isn't to large.

As for asking what people wish for in a barrel stallion, people out here aren't much of help. Most people need a nice large rear end, speed, and thick shoulders and would let it mount their mare without looking at anything else.

All 3 of my stallions impressed me in different ways.
Star was a proven sire with foals and mares at the place I got him.
What he passed on to them caught my attention. I was not looking for a stallion. Then I saw his pedigree but the deal clincher was watching her walk him through a herd of mares some of whom were in foal with no problem.
Sam was a winning proven race horse from the leading sire of arabian race horses. He won his first race by 13 lengths. Plus he was free.
Cassius was out of a mare I would hock my teeth to own and by a stallion that I intended to use as an outcross for my mares and foals. He resembles both in ways that I like. Shalom

I have been fortunate enough to have met and become friends with some top trainers who currently show and judge, one recently came back from judging Arabs in Brazil. These were the handlers of Padron, El Shaklan, Versace, worked at Rohara and Rojo as trainers/handlers, who have judged Salon du Cheval, South Africa, Uruguay, etc., and so on and they visit our farm regularly.

I don't settle for yahoo opinions..LOL

I think you give excellent advice to the OP Reining. It can be a challenge to find one's niche.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

Not that complicated. I just copied and pasted the links to the pedigrees.
