Barrel Horse Mare

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to do barrels with my mare and then one day use her as a broodmare. Would love to get critiques on her conformation for barrels or ranch events... Not sure these pics are the best after looking at them they are not the best of her at all lol but we will see.

Top line is weak - how much work has she done? She could use more muscling on her spine and the top of her neck.

Very nice head. I'd personally like to see more bone below the knee on a speed horse, but the pastern angles are good and the pasterns are not too long. I'd like to see slightly larger feet on her.

Good heart girth. Feminine build (important if you want to breed her).

Shoulder is a tad upright.

I'm not a barrels specialist, but I'd call her nice but not great.

Out of shape is an understatement. She has had about 60-70 rides on her, I bought her back in March/April and she was at the trainer until I just got her home. My goal is to get her muscled up and in shape and get her going on barrels. Eventually wanting to use her as a broodmare though.

I really appreciate your input :)
