Any Thoroughbred barrel racers?

Hello all!

I knew a gal that barrel raced a OTTB... The horse would get pretty hot though. She took about 2 years of retraining before she really started to compete with the horse. That horse sure had a stride on her!!!

Yes they make WONDERFUL barrel horses, because of their stamina and agility.

I like part TBs better for barrels. I've seen full TBs do it before though.

Well the TB that I'm reffering to is a shorter, stockier verson than your classic OTTB. He looks more like an appendix. I've seen him go and turn on a dime in the field. I think that he could do pretty well. Any info on how to get started in training?
Thanks for all the replies already!!

NBHA is a big one. But there are usually local groups too.
PM me and I can give you a pretty detailed training schedule, I just don't feel like typing it all out right now.
What is his training? Age? Current riding schedule?
