AQHA Members, help please.

I'm trying to find information on a quarter horse named Robey Joe. He's a 16.2H gelding that's between 16 & 18 years old. Any help that you can give me would be appreciated.

Thank you. Although I don't understand a thing about reading a pedigree. But I did notice that he has some thoroughbred in his bloodline.

He is the smoothest riding horse. I have been riding him 3x per week for about 1-2 hours. He seems to be fearless. Nothing seems to scare him. I talked to the lady that has owned him since he was 3. She said she only did dressage and he was used for hunter/jumper and sometimes went on fox hunts. He has a lot of trail riding miles on him. He was moved from her stable and is being pastured less than 10 minutes from me.

His name is Gilbert. Not sure how they got Gilbert out of Robey Joe. But he knows his name. He comes toward me when I call his name. He seems perfect for me. The vet will be out on wednesday to do the exam, float his teeth if needed, and give a 5-way vaccine. He's also going to show me how to clean his sheath. I have the coggins already. The owner sent them along with Gilbert.

Here's a couple of pictures of him. I'll only be trail riding.

I do not know anything about your horse, but I can tell you how he got his name. His sire is line bred 'Robey breeding'. Win or Lose was a very well known old stallion owed by Dick and Helen Robey back in the 70s. He was their foundation stud and was very prominent in early day breeding of reining and cowhorse competition horses. They also bred One Hundred Grand. I rode several Win or Lose horses and loved them all.

Your horse has some racing breeding on the bottom (the TB and Jet Deck) and the very bottom goes back to a very nice OLD foundation horse named Hank H sired by King P 234. Hank H sired a very famous son, Harlan, also owned by Dick and Helen. He was the most famous roping horse sire of his day.

So, you have very nice 'using' horse that is predominantly 'Robey' breeding. I would expect him to be a great saddle horse and to try to do anything you ask him to do. These were the kind of 'All around' horses we rode and raised and still do.

Here is a link to some of Win or Lose's accomplishments and get.Quarter Horse Directory - Win Or Lose

The Robeys used (help make famous) the magic cross of King / Leo / Three Bars. I wish there were more of these horses still around.

Thank you so very much Cherie.

I am more comfortable on this horse than any horse I have ridden. Jazz, the gelding I take riding lessons on isn't as easy to ride as Gilbert. I have become a much more confident rider since I started riding him.

I'm 52 years old and I don't think I'll ever be trying to climb up in a saddle with a mounting stool. He's 16.2H

I have been to your site several times. It is one of my favorite places to go to drool over horses.
