Question Halter bred?

Ok so I'm just getting into learning about how horses have been bred, I am not interested in breeding my mare or anything (she actually was already bred before I rescued her and I know the owners of her Pally filly and now they're both well spoiled!) :)

Anyway, back on topic! So, here is my mare's pedigree:

Coosas Playgirl Paint

I've been told she was "halter bred", now I'm assuming because of the "Coosa" in her background? (his info from all breed pedigree below)

Coosa Quarter Horse
Color: sor
Height: 16.0h N/N

AQHA# 1868917

HYPP N/N
H-53
Superior Halter
1982 AQHA World Weanling Halter Champion
2 Times AQHA Reserve World Champion Halter
AQHA Champion Sire
74% Foundation
Sire of: 375 performers winning 4,832 Halter points and 1,643 Performance points
9 World Champions, 7 Reserve World Champions, 20 Superior Halter Horses, 5 Superior Performance Horses, 162 ROM Earners

www.rosewoodhorseranch.com/coosa.html

Soooo anyway I know nothing about Halter classes/shows, but I think it would be interesting to learn about! So where are all of my Halter show-ers? ;) And since I have NO clue about halter classes and have never done one with her (we do Eventing instead haha) I haven't the slightest if I could ever even TAKE her to a halter class or how she would place if I did, since I know nothing about them. So any info would be really interesting to learn about! :)

Here are some photos of her:

It's not just the Coosa, either. Look at her Paint side, at Eternal Norfleet. And Eternal Mount.

She's actually better built, in terms of actually being useable and moving well, than a lot of halter horses. Which means she'll do fine as a rider, but probably wouldn't be all that competitive in halter classes (in my opinion, that's a good thing...). She has correct legs, lots of bulk, and a pretty head, so she could certainly show halter at a local level. If you're serious about it, you'd want to fit her a little for it first, and put a little training on her for the class.

I was surprised when I saw the pix because, yes Coosa is big halter. She's a good looking horse!

The fact that Painted Eternal and Eternal Mount are Eternal Sun who was also a very very nice performance sire adds to the mix. Get some nice bulk but they are great riding horses. My Stallion is a grand son of Eternal Sun Bars by Eternal Sun and his dam also has Eternal Sun in her pedigree. Makes for some nice looking and working horses.

Awesome, thanks all!! It's so cool to learn about why she was bred the way she was! Doesn't help me all that much for DRESSAGE ;) LOL but man can this little girl launch herself over fences!! She stands at just 14.1, but we just cleared 3'3" (new personal record for either of us!) a few weeks ago and she acted like it was no biggie!!

So what could I expect from a halter class and how would I fit her for one? Just curious since I've never even seen one :)

Biscuit looks much like his sire who is a champion halter horse. He is pretty darn muscular and with the exception of a slightly roach back he looks pretty darn good! Your little mare is quiet a looker!!! Love her backside!!

Thanks! And yes, I had her tested for HYPP because of the Impressive in her blood and happy to say she is N/N!
