It isn't that she's breeding for halter. She asked advice about complimenting her mare with a stallion. I recommended a more exotic headed stallion to put a little more exotic on the foal. I agree that a horse must be able to perform in a discipline, her horse is definitely bred to do that. Now, when breeding, why not go for the whole package? Go for main ring halter pretty but with the athleticism her mare probably has in spades. It's all about breeding for improving the stock you have, right? Her mare is pretty, let's add more pretty and athleticism and thus, stop breeding JUST for Main Ring or JUST for Sport Horse. Let's breed the best to the best and get even better.
