AQHA Breeders

I'm thinking of getting another foal and I'd like it to be a registrable quarter horse.

Yes I know you can't ride papers, but I already have my forever horse that I'm financially prepared for and I figured I might as well give it the best shot possible for resale. My mare is permanently scared in a way that would make anyone apprehensive as she gets older.

Plus, dealing with a breeder and seeing specific horses I can get an idea of how the foal will turn out.
I know what kind of horse I'm looking for. It's going to be used for cattle work, reining, trail and the occasional English class like hunter under saddle. Good mind a must because it's going to be my bf's horse (well, he'll call it is but we both know I'll be the one riding it) and he only cares about the color, but that's minor.

I don't have an AQHA membership anymore so I'm having difficulties looking up horses on the website and the one person I know who knows the most breeders around here would kill me if he knew I was looking for a papered horse and not wanting to breed my long backed, cow hocked, accomplished nothing mare to his long back, breeding unknown, accomplished nothing stallion.

Anyone have any breeders to recommend?
I'm in Southern Alberta so in Alberta, BC, Sask, Montana, northern Idaho...

Certain bloodlines to look at?
I would like to try to stay away from Hancock or Blue Valentine lines. I love how the ones I've seen work and look, but find them way to stubborn to get another one.
My old mare, I loved her, pure heart of gold and never a lame step. She was bred somewhere in Alberta, but I don't have her papers here. I wish I knew what her breeding was....

Sorry for the length, but if anyone has anything to suggest, I'd be really thankful.

I love the lines that Still Meadows Ranch has just outside of Edmonton. Im a huge fan of the Dual Pep horses right now and my trainer has a couple.

I looked up Still Meadows Ranch and they seem to be able to cover the "brown" horse criteria my bf wants. The only confo shot I saw though was of Sonitas Junior Jag, he's really handsome but looks kind of long in the back... But that could just be me.

Nicole, why exactly are you a fan of Duel Pep horses?
I typed his name into Google images and some of the horses are absolutely gorgeous.

The two that im riding right now are not of the gorgeous type but the best working horses I've ever rode. Both of them are rather plain actually but super slinky and can stop on a dime if that’s what your looking for. The one is a bit of a handful. Well not really. But he isnt for a beginner rider but he is my favorite out of the two. He is a little crazy…just like me haha.
