id say go with the buckskin mare, they both have the potintial(spelled wrong lol) but the buckskin looks to have a shorter back which is better for various gaming events(barrels, poles, ect.) my 4h leader does all reining and cow(sorting, cutting, penning, boxing, ect.) and says that shorter horses are better for that sort of thing, they are quicker to jump side-to-side and can turn on their heels faster than a longer horse can, he prefers shorter backed horses. I agree with ropinbiker, id use the neck reined horse. However there is a question, does either horse leg que?? Are they prefectly sound, not just for riding, I mean will their legs be able to take the preasure from jumping around?(i say this because I had a mare once who was perfectly sound for rideing and all but had week hocks witch made her unusable for gaming but I could do anything else with her). Over all the buckskin is the one I would choose.
It may not be easy getting there, but once your there you relise it was worth it.
