Can someone give me advice about what stud to use in future?

I've got a mare that I do ride all around with and show in. She has ARHA halter points, and is a open show winner. I've used her in 4H for 9 years. She's a great kids mare. She is 14H and is sorrel. She's being bred in the spring to a Buckskin Tobiano. I was wondering what AQHA or APHA stallions would suite her?
Here are her good traites:
*Excellent conformation
*Great mover
*Fast learner
*Very athletic
*Very attractive mare
*Has a nice head
*Good muscling
*Has good bloodlines
*Good show horse
*Has a show record
*Gentle

And here are her faults that I can see:
*She can be spooky
*Can occaisionally be pushy

Here are a few pictures. Please look beyond the feet not being done. Her feet don't look like that. They are actually nice and square.

These are the best Conformation pictures I have right now.

I'd like to have a stallion with a good mind and personality. A show record perfered. I would like to have a versitile baby sense she has competed in many events. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Pictures don't work...

On facebook, right click the image. Click "Properties", and copy the direct link and that would work better.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Her Name is I May Get Lucky. She is registered AQHA and is eligable for APHA due to Dam being double registered.

Here is her pedigree
I May Get Lucky Quarter Horse

I want a foal that will preform in western pleasure, HMS, Trail, maybe halter if she takes her dam's build, western riding, or even HUS. Really a show prospect.

I assume you have tested her for LWO before you start thinking about stallions? And you know her HYPP status (I know some lines don't carry HYPP at all, but I would suggest that it is better to be safe rather than sorry...)

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

No, I haven't tested her yet. She doesn't carry HYPP either. It might be a good idea to test her for LWO though.

If she's already being bred to a buckskin tobiano why would you need another stallion? Or is that just what you'd prefer to breed to? Since she's a sorrel and a buckskin is only a single dilute you're not going to get a dilute offspring from that cross, fyi.
