Ew, gross gross gross. It's like those body building people you see on TV. Why anyone thinks that amount of muscle is attractive on ANYTHING is beyond me. Just creeps me out.

I know right. And I HIGHLY doubt that mare is even fit to have a foal so why even breed horses like that. Its NUTS! I mean I have an Impressive line horse but she doesnt look like any of them at all. (Didnt know she was Impressive bred at the time)

Horses like that don't move properly, that's why they are halter horses and not performance horses LOL. Even though many of them are not nearly so bulky when they are not fitted for shows, their conformation still leaves so much to be desired; tiny feet, chicken bones, upright pasterns, straight hocks, straight shoulders, etc, etc. Even if they do stay sound for riding, their riders usually don't because it's about like riding a jackhammer during an earthquake.

I don't want anyone to get me wrong, I've got nothing at all against the Impressive line itself (I have a grandson of his), but I don't like the way that the line is being used. It gives it such a horrible name and all of the Impressive horses I have ever dealt with have the sweetest personalities. It's a shame, really.


BTW: I do like muscle like that on my beef cattle . More bang for your buck LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

In theory, a good halter horse is capable of competing in any athletic event!?

Which is why halter horse people are throwing a fit about the "Performance Halter Class"

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

What I like to watch is the halter classes at the Ranch Horse Competitions. Not only do the horses have to prove their proficiency at cutting, roping, and some other events; they are taken into the halter ring with old nylon or rope halters, sweat stains on their coat and all. AND, they are judged on their suitability for ranch work, which is the ultimate performance event .

Well to get back on topic, you're right it doesn't make sense to breed to that stallion with the chances. Any responsible breeder should breed only to better the species.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

That's so awesome. We really need more types of "equine triathlons" and that sort of thing! It is MIND boggling to me that the horses winning in breed associated halter are completely unsuited for any sort of real performance work. There was a time when almost every National Champion Halter Arab also competed in a performance event and it's SO rare these days. Much the same as the QH and Paint's I imagine!

That grey mare is very scary looking.

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...

People are lazier now-a-days. God forbid they actually have to DO something to win a class. Just stand there and look pretty, that's all they have the energy to do. I'd say it's like the horse equilavent of a beauty pagent, but even they have to have some sort of talent.
