Best bloodlines for English Pleasure

So my daughter wants to find a weanling/yearling AQHA or APHA colt to train in Hunter Under Saddle. What bloodlines should I be looking for to excel in English classes?

Thanks in advance

Skys Blue Boy. He's got 170+ congress and world champion/reserve champion winners. His bloodlines pretty much dominate english AQHA/APHA/ApHC events.

I think Zippos Sensation is a Western Pleasure horse, even though he was the sire of The Big Sensation.

I wouldn't go near him based on who the owner is, but op looks to be buying not breeding? The mare I value more than the stud. Stud makes no matter if it's not a compliment.

I will be the first to admit, I don't know squat about AQHA or APHA bloodlines but the above statement is as true as they come. So many people are hung up on the stud alone. They will have a mediocre mare and want to breed to a great stud thinking they will produce the next world champion. Bloodlines and conformation come from both sides. The mare is a huge factor as well. Look for the stud that best complements the mare. Study the pedigrees of both sides. Good luck.
