Thanks for the advise guys! I hope it works out for me. I just want this to be my starter horse, to learn reining with, and to go from there. I'm not ready for the majorly competitive level yet, but I need a start.

Personally that is not something I would look for in a reining prospect. Now a rope prospect ya maybe. But not reining.

Keep in mind that if you are looking for a reining prospect and have never done it you are going to spend a lot of money getting one raised up and trained. Take that money and go buy a proven reiner and learn on that horse then go and buy a prospect once you get a good idea of what you want. They buy a true reining prospect. One with proven sire and dam in reining.

^^Thanks!

Here's a colt out of this mare this year, what do you all think? Not a great one, but something. He's by a half brother to the stud that I'm getting a foal from.

Hi DiamondK! Welcome!
I'm no reining guru, I follow it and like you dream of doing it one of these days!

As far as your foal all I can say is I SEE the Leo in the mare. She looks like all the strongly bred Leo horses I've ridden and been around. I've been on some that were excellent playday and barrel horses but I'm not sure how that's going to help you in reining.
Personally the only strong faults with the mare I see are her short (leo like) neck and her long back. With Leo standing out so strong in her you'll probably get a carbon copy. Both have some nice bone structure and the stud looks like a power house!

I'm sure you are going to get a great foal. What are this mare's offspring doing?

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

If you look above, you'll see a picture of this years foal. This is the only foal she's had so far, her next one will be mine in 2014. The foal above is by a half brother to the stud I'm having her bred to for 2014.

Again I am not seeing reinnig prospect. So you will need to figure out how much you are willing to give on that count and how much you are willing to spend to get a horse who is not going to make a great reiner in the training. Again if you are only looking to do playday Non NRHA reining this prospect will most likely be fine. If you are looking at doing any NRHA reining I would keep looking. Again I would also say buy a finished horse. In the end you will be 100% more happy.
