Have you wondered what makes a horse a Barrel Horse?

Our Analysis will go through your horses from head to toe and help you to understand what parts of your horses build are great for the barrel pen, and what parts are going to need some help.
In our Custom Reports, we highlight the strengths and challenges of their build and how that applies to the pattern and ground conditions.
You send us pictures and a run and we will send you back a report & a video showing:
  • Top 3 Time Stealers
  • Posture Analysis
  • Saddle & Rein Analysis
  • Job Analysis
  • What Pattern Strengths your horse will have
  • What Pattern Challenges your horse will have
Your horses skeleton accounts for a minimum of 80% of their athletic capacity.  Therefor, you really need to know how your horse is built to work.



You will learn HOW to measure you AND your horse to see what will work – how to check if the pad is the saint or the sinner – how to measure your body for best fit.

  • Did you know that it is MORE important that the saddle fits the rider than the horse?
  • Did you know your pad might be creating a false topline and pulling your saddle forward – pinching your horses scapula?
