    All the parents are riding horses with good feet etc. It will be a halter horse in its youth but never built up to the extent of some of today's horses. It will be a rider as well.

    While I'm not a particular fan of AQHA/APHA/APHC halter horses I have known a few who have been used for riding...Actually, I know of a AQHA world champion halter mare who also does roping and has gone to the Worlds to do so.

    Like what others have said, Halter horses like the one you want to be bred to your mare have very small feet and have straight hocks. A lot of halter horses just do halter. However your mare doesn't seem to be very, very halter bred to me.

    If you do end up using the babies to ride, I would just suggest letting their feet grow large as much as possible to support their massive body.

    Never-the-less, I really like the looks of that stallion. He seems very pretty, do you have more pics of him?

    I would be interested to know how many of these incredibly, heavily muscled QHs with small bone and tiny feet, do actually compete over long periods and stay sound. I've been attending cutting horse championships for many years and never seen one horse, built like the stallion pictured.

    Re the avatar. Thanks TheAQHAGirl. That is Playboy, my daughter's former Gypsy Horse stallion. He has just been sold back to England, where he originally came from.
    My daughter first spied him there as a youngster. Luckily, he has left some mighty good offspring here in the US. He is certainly a well travelled boy.

    I've known quite a few ropers that like ex halter horses and halter horse flunkies and use them for heading/heeling. They like the mass and stopping power. I also personally know a Mr. Yella Fella son that was a halter horse until he was 5 and then broke to ride, he currently is giving lessons and being trail ridden over tough terrain almost daily.

    While the stallion isn't my cup of tea, that is really just a personal preference. It's not what I like, but we all have our likes and dislikes.

    The thing that bothers me is not the stud. Looking at the mares on the website, almost all of them are HYPP N/H and many are listed as in foal to Elvis. Yes, he's N/N, but I personally do not agree with breeding knowing the potential posed to the resulting foals. Again, this is just my personal opinion, but I would not want to support that type of breeder. If I have misread or am misinformed, please correct me.

    Their up and coming junior stallion is NH too :(. I am happy for the OP that she will get her dream foal, but also do not agree with breeding NH horses. This horrible disease could be eradicated in just one generation if they would stop breeding NH horses.

    That's true - Wasn't trying to put a damper on the OP.

    HipHopHorseWoman, I'm happy you're finally getting the foal you want. That is always exciting, especially if you have been waiting a while. When are you planning on breeding?

    Haha omg! Sorry about that!

    I understand trying to breed for the cream of the crop, but wouldn't it just make more sense to breed outstanding n/n mares? If I understand correctly, I think you only need one copy of the HYPP gene for the horse to be affected by it, unlike other genetic disorders like OLWS where you need two. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought I had read that somewhere.

    However, that's neither here nor there as it's beyond your control. I hope everything goes well for you and that your mare catches easily. Has she had any foals before?
