Are these to be barrel horses? It is really hard to tell from these pictures. The first looks quite downhill moving, and not good pictures. A video would be much better.

The second, has a lovely trot, but the standing picture I'm not impressed. May just be an awkward age for both of them.

Need conformation photos, video of all three gaits in both directions (free moving preferred), and your proposed use of these fillies.

Both are gorgeous,
but keep in mind what you want them to be if you want a jumper more or a jumper conformation and if you want a barrel horse you need a barrel conformation.

lol I would take them both!! have fun!

As another poster said. Ideal conformation for a hunter jumper and a barrel horse are different. If you are just looking for an all around horse that can do a little bit of everything but is not needed to go to high levels I think any of these horses may fit that bill. Remember that a Pre Purchase Exam is a must to determine soundness

the first two pic's the one being ridden and the pic before it. The horses head looks like there would be some Arabian in her/him.

The last two pic's the head looks like a TB or saddlebred.
