Thanks all, for comments & opinions. Very much appreciated!! Interesting perspectives from each.

Spooks Gotta Whiz is a great suggestion. Love the double bred. I'm really liking Chromed out Mercedes, as well.

Oh I don't suggest breeding to him as an experiment his stallion fee is pretty high for an experiment, although I think it's way more than resonable for what he is/has done. However I would only breed to him if you had a proven mare.

An experiment stud?

Hold That Cow, he is super athletic and his fee is reasonable.
Magnum With a Dream, love this boy, and again reasonable fee.
Mister Dual Pep, super reasonable fee for what he has produced.
Matt Dillon Dun It, you can get a fee very cheap, foals are lower valued in the market but if you plan on keeping no big deal.
Dun It with a Twist, good people manage him and his fee is reasonable.

Anyways I could go on for days :)

You are right... He's pricey! But I love his movement, athleticism & bone. Thought it could be a suitable cross & great all-around potential with my mare. Shes a Too Sleepy To Zip. Too forward for WP but

Why not just take your horse into the Ranch Horse Pleasure? Depending on where you are located, you will most likely be in the class with other horses in the same boat as your mare -- not a pleasure horse, and not a HUS horse.

Have some fun and then if you decide you like it, find a more ranch-type horse to do it. Your mare is already a tweener, she's a cute mare, but that's where she falls. Breeding her to a reiner doesn't make a lot of sense, really.

I watched the vid, even though it was 3 years old....your horse is a really nice HUS horse ( she's not a WP horse). I would not breed her to a reiner....HUS x Reiner doesn't make much sense. You don't want to show her in HUS? That's what she's built and trained for....I like her.

Thank you so much for looking at the video & considering her case! It is an old video & she's changed considerably since her twos. I think you have a great point.

I agree with GotaDunQH, she is definately a HUS horse, and I like her aswell. I think you should test the waters first though and see how you like it, maybe borrow a horse whose better suited for it if thats possible and test it out and if you do, then you are going to have to consider a horse better suited for it, If not, if you still want to breed her, you can breed her to a nice HUS stud and have a baby who would probably excell in hus, I really like All In Lights!

For real though, your mare is quite gorgeous!
