American Warmblood / Quarter horse

hi, I am interested in buying a foal that is both registered as a quarter horse and an American warmblood. Her sire was 15/16 throughbred and her dam was 3/4 throughbred. I am looking to show and breed her but was wondering what the foals could be registered as if I bred to a Dutch Warmblood or a Hanoverian or an Oldenburg. I have been to the sites for all of these breeds but am having trouble if the horse i am interested in is able to be in the mare book for any of them.

Also, the filly i am looking at scored a 7.5 for type, 7's for confo and movement, and a 7.2 for frame. she was awarded an overall 7.2 at the American Warmblood Inspection and was awarded first premium. Her sire is Indian Artbeat.
I would really apprieciate any comments on the breed or sire or if you think she would be a good buy.

First of all, unless she were to go through a Hanoverian, Oldenburg or Dutch mare inspection and pass with a certain score her foals could only be registered as American Warmbloods. With only a 7.2 in AW, I cant imagine anything higher than a 6 or 6.5 from any of these registries (meaning that she has a good chance of not making it into a book), plus there will probably also be a lot of paperwork required. I would talk to your area rep. about the specifics, because I am not very versed in inspection policies..
Depending on what you are buying her for, she might be a good buy. As a dressage horse, she would probably make an excellent lower level mount, but it is doubtful that she would be able to handle the collection and have the movement and ability for the higher levels. For jumping, she could knock over a 2' crossrail or be able to do the 4' averagely. You don't know at this age. The best thing to do is look at her lines.
Basically, buying a foal is like buying a lottery ticket. You don't know if you're going to win or lose. It is really important to look at lineage when buying a horse and be prepared to pay well for good, successful lines. Because she is part quarter horse, I imagine her price would be quite low (comparitively to foals born as Hano/Olden/KWPN), but this also means that you are taking more of a gamble, and a higher chance of ending up with a registered pleasure mount.
So it's your choice. Personally as someone who seriously trains dressage and competes a few times a year, I would pass. But depending on your expectations of what the foal will become, and your price range she could be just right.
Good Luck!

I like Indian Artbeat...

Why do you want to breed for a warmblood? Curious.

As far as breeding goes, a lot of those that you posted will not accept a QH, as far as I know. I KNOW Danish does not take QHs and I believe the others are the same. They only accept horses that better the breed, and QHs are not part of the WB breed. So, you could breed to a WB stallion, but will end up with an AWS or AWR baby, which in the real world doesn't sell for much. Just what I have learned. I personally would not look for a horse specifically to breed later on, unless it has a great pedigree, show record, good conformation, and would produce something that would be marketable. If she is registered AQHA, the only thing you should really consider breeding her to is a QH, Paint, or TB, that way you have the baby registered with a reputable registry. For your personal riding horse, buy her if you like her.

I like her sire but I agree that if you were to breed her stick to a QH, Paint, or TB stallion. What type of competition are you looking to show her in? Her bloodlines are very "in" on the quarter horse circut and if she has some talent along with proper training you could excel in hunter under saddle classes.
