Comet98 posted a topic in Barrel RacingMy horse is a Quarter Horse/Standardbred cross. I'm planning on showing her in not only western pleasure but gymkhana as the main event at fairs and fun shows. I especially wanna do barrels and i know Quarter Horse's are the best for that so i wanted to know people's opinions on whether or not she would be a good barrel horse for it or not. I'm not gonna travel to the NFR or anything, but i'd like to know what y'all think about her breed and stuff. If anyone has any other ideas for me with how to help her become a better horse for barrels i'm definately open to it! She was trained by Chris Cox, which he specializes in western riding and showing. So, she was bred to compete for something. I'll pose some pictures below too! I've gotta build muscle on her as well, but she's a long back horse which i was wondering would either help or not help with turning?
I've heard so many things from different people and im just getting confused! I'm planning on showing and competing my horse in fairs and fun shows this summer. I want to know whether or not i NEED bell boots for my horse. She doesn't have shoes or anythiing like that so i know thats one of the main reasons people have them! and what type of leg boots would be good for a hardcore going gymkhana horse?
