    Thank you.
    The gaited horses are really starting to catch on here in the last couple of years, ranch, cow horses I think will always sell here because of all the cattle ranches, quads can't go every where here we have mountains and deep sandy soil. This is still Quarter horse and Paint county for now anyway.

The bloodline is one of the best there is. Of course ignorant is ignorant - not much you can do about that. That still doesn't explain why they would be "shocked" though...why would someone be shocked at someone else's bloodline - especially if it was a good bloodline?

    I a WP person and I don't want to see Impressive in the pedigree, but that's just my opinion. I owned an Impressive/ZPB cross WP mare, and it was a cross that did not work. While she had the movement of a WP horse and confo of a ZPB, and she had the mind set of an Impressive. Don't care whether I get flamed or not, but pretty much ALL of the Impressive's I've had experience with....and it's quite a few, NOT just a handful...have a mind quirk. Anyway, sold that mare within a year. Impressive's just don't fit into my program or my discipline. Sure there are a couple nice top AQHA WP with Impressive in their, like the Vital Sign horses, but boy.....they are so far and few between.

    Once again, just a bloodline I do not care for that has nothing to do with HYPP.

    Why would you get flamed everyone has a right to an opinion and your experience with the line wasn't good. I didn't know her blood lines until after I rescued her. She can be a bit flighty but she's young and has had a rough life so far with injuries, and illness. Doubt if she ever be saddled she may never be bred either just have to wait and see how she progresses. I don't really care for those great big bodies on those spindly little legs on the line, her bodies not really big but her legs are thin in comparison so maybe that contributed to her leg issues. She probably should have been put down when she broke her shoulder but the lady I got her from couldn't do and did the best she could for the horse. She is progressing but it's slow there was alot of muscle loss because of being in such a small stall for so long. She's not in any pain right now and a happy little horse.

    Well, because it seems the Impressive line is very controversial amongst us AQHA folks, LOL. And you are right about the spindly legs and big bodies and THAT is what changed when Impressive came along. The whole world of AQHA halter changed, and IMHO...not for the better. Halter class is about "form to function", however you can't ride these halter horses because of the way they are built. The "look" has been tweaked over the year since Impressive came along. Bodies got bigger and more muscle bound, and straight angles everywhere. Heads and feet got smaller BECAUSE a horse that size should normally have a bigger head and bigger feet. But that wasn't pretty enough, so the tweaking began to make some things smaller.

    Then after far too many years of this, AQHA came up with Performance Halter, so the correctly conformed horses that could ACTUALLY perform under saddle could be judged on "form to function", which is WHAT the halter class was originally intended to be.
