Cowgirl101, could you maybe support your opinion? Just so I can get a feel foryour logic? Because I disagree. I think that she hasa very unique and stylish movement that should be judged. I think she could do anything, but those are her shining characteristics and she should be judged on it and her best side should be seen!

Nice horse, she is attractive and has good bone, she could probably be very versatile.

You know, the funny thing with asking others for opinions on what a horse is suited to will usually result in opinions that are coloured by their own experiences, which is fine by the way. I am exactly the same. I looked at this horse and immediately thought she would look great sailing over some jumps as she has a nice boxy frame, strong legs and natural balance.

Correct me if I am wrong here Cowgirl but those attributes would also be beneficial in a barrel/roping horse?

Really with a horse like this that is put together nicely, has a solid frame and good looks to boot, you are not limited to trying her in a single dicipline. A lot of it will depend on what you want to do and how she responds to the particular training required for it.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Well I have an English set-up, just no bridle yet. She is most comfortable in English that is for sure. I do like to jump, only have done it a couple of times, but hey I can learn right? :) I would love to do flat work, that would be soo much fun!! Oh now I'm all excited :)

So I've never shown English, I have some work to do. lol

I think she has the build to do anything; hunters, barrels, roping, pleasure. She's a big stocky horse with good movement. People have said my barrel horse would do good in dressage because she moves so pretty, i still do barrels with her. It all really depends on what you want to do with her, and what she enjoys. Any horse can be trained to do any dicipline, but only if they put their heart into it will they actually do any good. Build also comes into matter, the more built for that dicipline the horse is the better they will be.

I think that she could make a really nice barrel racer or gamer. But the key is to go slow and take her time and do a variety of things. I Love barrel racing and gaming but I also do Hunter jumper with my horses to help keep there mind Freash, and always changing their foucus :) Good Luck with you desicion.

What is wrong with that type of built horse for barrels?
My Jodyis stocky and short and before I got her, she was a state champ.

I bet she would make a good gamer and barrel racer.
