Very very true buck off. That's what my barrel trainer has always told me, its not the horses breeding or the way the horse is built its the horses heart and desire and the will to want to win.

I'm such a conformation freak so this is hard for me to say - barrels horses come in every shape, size, and conformational fault there is. Here is what to look for: soundness and HEART. That seems to be the only thing that matters. I know a super pole horse that is so toed in that it is hard to believe she can even walk. Good training, good riding and good planning is what makes a good barrel horse.

TimeChaser, good information, your right, it doesn't seem to matter the confirmation much, the more I read, and your quote is very funny and helpful! :)
