Quarter Ponies?

Are Quarter Ponies a rare breed? I hardly find one that can't be bred with a qh and be registered AQHA too. I've heard of NQPA, InternationalQPA, and AQPA being the registrations. Do you know of any Quarter ponies that can also qualify for AQHA registration too?

I found a really pretty Quarter Pony stallion I may concidered for my mare and probably will use in concideration down the road since he has some showing in aqha. I haven't did a lot of research on him.

Just out of curiosity, do you think he would compliment her? They didn't have confo shots.

They are just short QH's. 2 of mine are technically quarter ponies because they are 14.2hh. We double registered a couple when I was younger, my sister showed quarter pony shows as well as AQHA. The last time we reg'd one I believe it was 58" & under for height requirement.

When we reg'd them they had to be reg'd AQHA as well. There are several quarter pony associations, some allow based on type and don't require registration.

Several of the QP associations will register grade--or even pinto--ponies if they meet the other requirements. They're more for showing, and hardly that. Not much of a useful registry and most people don't take QP papers seriously.

Far as I know QP has to have quarter horse characteristics. I don't see why there is a problem being registered with QP also if you're also AQHA.

Does anyone a thought about the stud?

They don't state his HYPP status (Impressive is on his dam's side). Check that out for sure.

The stud himself looks as though his legs are too short for him. Like he is a full size horse on slightly short legs. LOL

Would be nice if they took better pictures, unsaddled, squared up, and not from across an arena :)

I would also worry about his frame status - that blaze looks like frame to me.

Hmm, learn something new every day. I always kinda figured that a "quarter pony" was a cross between a quarter horse and some kind of pony, like the Shetland x QH I rode a while back. I never considered a Quarter Horse a pony of any kind, regardless of their actual height .

How can you tell if they're frame other than testing? I mean you just looked at the pictures and said he might be frame? Could you explain that please?

You HAVE to test to be sure, and in a breed that has frame, such as QHs, I personally would test EVERY horse I bred from, as frame can and does hide very easily. With this stallion, the reason I suspect frame is his top heavy face marking - it looks like it wants to spread across his forehead onto his neck. Frame tends to like top heavy face white. I think he also displays sabino, but that is not anything to worry about. Just his frame status. If they tell you that he has tested negative, I would ask to see the test results, because I would be very very surprised in this case if he was negative.
