I live in South/western Ontario, and I am going to breed my grandaughter's quarter horse this coming winter.. she is training to barrell race, and my objective is to get her a good horse she will be able to raise from birth, bond totally with, and train on when it is old enough. Her quarter horse she has now is definately a great horse to train on, but she wont have the agility or speed to do barrels when Julianna is also old enough and trained enough to go full out..

Anyone know of a good stallion in my general area that barrel races successfully??

Thanks

Sally

I don't know of any stallions up there but if you coem across a few look at pedigree for barrel stats, look at their disposition, build, and feet!! I'm a barrel racer and although I breed Arabians for it now I used to be more into Quarter horses.

If you don't have a good hoof you don't have a horse for anything. People often ignore looking at a prospects hooves and if he has problems he can pass it to the foal.

I say pedigree because although plenty of grade horses run very well in barrels if your looking a lot of top barrel horses have it in their pedigree. You could also look for racing lines (agility and speed) and now days people are looking for Reining horses to cross breed (agility, speed, and mind) barrel + barrel dosn't always = barrel. I have a great barrel horse now that is out of a Halter Champion sire and a Racing dam- she has the build of the halter with a great mind, but she has her dams speed.

Hope this helps and look up www.barrelhorsenews.com they might have a stallion advertisment.

Thanks so much for the info.. we are breeding her in early winter 2009.. do you think standard bred or thoroughbred as a race horse.. I certainly could get a good standardbred stallion.. but not sure if that would be best or a good barrel stallion??

I really love this site.. its amazing!

You never know, but I was thinking thoroughbred when I said racing.

I've seen some odd crosses that made wonderful barrel horses. A good friend of mine had a 13.2hh Paso/ Quater cross that was a 2D horse. Then again my arab/morgan mare has take me to Youth World once, and has qualified me for it once more and twice for Open World. So you never know, but the majority is Quarter Horses or Quarter/Thoroughbred.

how old is your daughter? how big is the mare? my sister is 14yearsold 170lbs rides a 900 to 1000 lb morgan quater. you would be serprised how fast they can run when they feel confortable with the rider. do you run barrels to?

ya know the best crosses ive found come from the thoughbreed stock crossed to cow horses. you need the speed but the brain of a cow horse.

our fastes is a sir quincy dan mare (this is my stud out of the same line http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/ima+litttle+rusty)

if you look hes got a few racers up there and a few show horses and lots of cow. i love the cow crosses becuase you get a thought process they put into it. she will even count her steps and turn if there is no barrel cuz she knows what shes supose to do...... this line is very layed back and anyone can ride. My studs first ride was bareback with a halter at 3 after he'd bread all summer at 2. you get him going and hes so fast but so leavel headed. you need that most of all for a kid.

Most people wont take there stallions to do this cuz they get to wound up and cant show or cut with them, they want to run to much. so if you find a horse that you like, ask the owner for its name then find a stallion thats close. but baraaks right some times crosses are they way to go. We got a mustang thats almost as fast as this mare. so we bred her to my stud and i hope that this will be my ultamate cross. i love to see the arabs run, and they are fast and intelegent as well, ive seen them put to much thought in to it!!! hehehe


im up here in nothern idaho so cant help to much but do you go to any kind of 4h shows or anything. find a local saddle club, there is allways at least one person thats got a stud they use to make barrel horses.

Thanks guys, I dont barrel race, in fact dont ride at all anymore due to injuries ( car not horse) my grandaughter is only 11 but is 5'4" tall and bout 108 lbs.. she has a great quarter horse now, but wont be any good for th barrels as she starts to pick up speed.. I think a thoroughbred is a good idea, gonna start looking there..

Keep you posted..

Sally

leggs are not allways the awnser, you can have a horse whos awsome on a strait race with long legs but cant get up to full stride (speed) fast enuff inbetween obsticals. I love crosses for it but not full thoughbreds, to much leg! you want high hocks and about 14 to 16 hands a real sloping sholder and big rearend!

good luck show us pics on your prospects!

im 5'8" about 150 ride a 1000lb 14h mustang cross, and a 15h 900lb paint. both carry my weight and size just fine

Sally:

Check the website for the Ontario Paint Horse Association and their president, email to see if he knows of any good barrel racing stallions, or you can check the stallion link on the OPHC and EOPHC as well as the APHQ sites, all not too far from your location.

I have a stallion, but hes a reining bred. We havent tried him on cows yet or barrels as he is only 3.

Im not sure if you are looking for a paint stallion, or have anything in particular in mind, but you can start there and see where that gets you.
