I'm not very familiar with the QH world so this might be an obvious question, but how do they build up all of that muscle if the horses aren't ridden?

I totally agree. QH are one of the most well known breeds for all around performance. The halter horses look like body builders on crack! I am most definitely a QH girl but where is the functionality? I understand that there is money in halter but if they just stand there and look "pretty" (According to current standards) What is the point. They go into the ring for a total of five minutes and stand? Where is the competition?

I really like making mandatory at least one riding event required for halter horses. It would really shake thing up a bit. :)

Halter bloodlines, treadmills & hot walkers.

Well for the most part, But when my girl was old enough I rode her to condition her. .
I think some these horses aren't as bad as they seem but get ruined by some of these conditioning programs.You pull that halter weight off them,don't be putting them in shoes as yearlings to make these long/small upright feet,give them some outdoor free excercise. Hmm you have a different looking,sounder/healthier horse

A functional horse is a beautiful horse.

Wow, I'm excited so many posts are popping up about Halter horses, since I've always known my mare's bloodlines were halter-woven but didn't really know a whole lot about what that meant. So it's great to be learning about it!

Someone on my halter thread said she was a good "riding horse" too and I wasn't sure entirely what that meant but this cements it in I think! She was a rescue who I've turned into my little Eventer so she's certainly performing!

The second photo the horse actually has feet. The horses that are winning now days have feet two sizes smaller than those on the same size body.

^^True from what I've been reading...my pony has big solid bare feet and never has any lameness issues because of it! ;)
