Nice pedigree!! I really like that he has a really strong line of performing mares on the bottom of his pedigree. I haven't personally dealt with a Peptoboonsmal, but I love the Smart Little Lena/Peppy San Badger cross. We have several in my trainer's barn (including the mare I show) that have Smart Chic Olena/Peppy San Badger breeding.
Not a QH person [ a very good friend of mine has done "reiners" for years and has a bronze from her own breeding program.] but ,I do know he ought to be able to cut/ rein stop and spin on a dime. He looks great on paper. It looks like you will enjoy him
Yes, I also agree that he looks completely useless and helpless on paper. If you'd like to ship him to NY I'll take him to save him from a horrible fate. Maybe I can even, with hours of patience and diligence, teach him to cut cows. d;
Now that's my kind of QH- I rode a Doc bar son years ago in Colorado, he was a wonderful horse, super smart, awesome mellow tempermant, and by far the softest fur I have ever felt...and his coat was amazingly shiny- he looked very similar to this lovely horse.
Went back further in his pedigree and what bugs me is that the pedigree writers put down the pre-1942 horses breed as Quarter Horse.
How can they do that if the breed didn't exist before then?
I would like to know if they were actually morgan, thoroughbred, draft, arabian or just ranch horses with build and talent.
Very 'pretty' horse, watched the video, but not moving out, moves too slow, can't run, for the fast circles, a bit better on the run downs. Not solid as a real reiner. Built and carries himself more in a pleasure frame. Would be better as Western Riding class horse IMHO. Not built for cutting either. We had one bred for cutting that was built this way, he did okay for the DDs in 4-H at state level, in reining and horsemanship pattern riding, but was not cut out for futurity stuff. But he could 'run' also and collect up in a frame like this horse. He had the bunched up burst of speed, this horse doesn't have any of that.
The truth is what you can get other people to believe.
