Ok, I just moved my green mare Charm, who I want to train for barrel racing and/or polebending to a new stable and I met a few new people there.
Well one girl (sorta a know it all) came up to me and asked what I wanted to use Charm for. I told her for barrels or poles. Well she got huffing and puffing about how a little 14.3 hh horse (charm) wouldn't be able to do barrels good because of her height! That her legs are to little and she wouldn't be able to run fast. Believe me Charm is fast I know from working with her. For goodness sakes the girl I just learned is a hunter jumper and knows nothing about barrel racing! Grrr.... sometimes people make me so mad.
I have always learned when it comes to barrel racing a horse's height doesn't matter. That height is just as important as a horses color when it comes to barrels.
Do any of you prefer a certain height or for your barrel horse?
Sorry for venting on you all. Just got a little mad
