Besides, in every registration horses having Impressive explicitely state the HYPP status.
Not all, unfortunately.

You´re right. Mine does but I believe it became a requirement after 2007.

ApHC and APHA do not require that the HYPP status of an Impressive bred horse be stamped on their papers.

Well, sort of...don't forget you are working with ApHC here...

If you want a laugh, read this from the ApHC handbook...I'll let you try and figure out their "logic". In short, if your stallion and mare are Appys, testing is only recommended, and no results are put on the papers. But if your stallion or mare is an NH or HH Quarterhorse, they (and their descendents if NH or HH) MUST be tested and the results will be on the papers.

a. The ApHC recommends testing of any horse known to have an ancestor carrying the HYPP gene, designated under ApHC rules as a genetic defect, to confirm the presence or absence of this gene.
b. ApHC-eligible foals resulting from AQHA-registered stallions and mares born on or after January 1, 2007 and having HYPP status of NH or HH will be required to be HYPP tested at the same time they are parentage verified and to have their HYPP status designated on their ApHC Certificates of Registration. Further descendents of NH or HH ApHC-registered horses will also be required to be HYPP tested/Parentage Verified and have that status designated on their ApHC Certificates of Registration.

Why need a halter horse that is so beefy like that in the first place? I don't know. At the cost of the extreme suffering of tons of horses, just to force them to bulk up. =\
This is exactly why they breed for N/H horses. The N/N Impressive horses don't have the genetic "advantage" (using that term with full sarcasm and disdain dripping) that the N/H and H/H horses do - the muscles are very defined and often big - gives them a boost in preparing for classes where muscles are everything. H/H horses don't live long, so they hope for N/H horses.

I myself had a N/H gelding - years ago and didn't know when I got him. He was actually pleasure bred, except for one Impressive grand-dam. They pass it down 50/50 though, so even though his name was Zippos To Ride, and went to Zippo Pine Bar four times, he ended up with it. Moved like a pleasure horse, looked like a Zippo, but had very defined muscles. Sold him with full disclosure after learning of the risks - he had won me enough that a trainer took a chance with him. Seemed like a time bomb waiting to go off... and I sold him for THOUSANDS less than I could have had he not had it. Everyone was very, very interested until they learned his HYPP status.

N/N is not necessary to attain a very good halter horse. I'm not going to post a link because he is a friends horse, not mine, but many of you likely know about Phenominal Creation. Look him up and look at his get's production...
