    Nikelodeon - I wouldn't really compare your horse with one cross to Impressive with one that has multiple crosses to Impressive.

    Yes Impressive bred horses CAN do other things. The ones that do are not normally the ones that were bred for halter. The mare in question was clearly bred for halter and competed and won in halter.

    So she's actually 14? Just the fact that the sellers lied to me makes me not want her anymore. I'll guess I'll look elsewhere, then. Anyone got any good sites for finding good horses?

    Some of the more versatile Quarter Horses I've had or ridden had strong Dash for Cash, Zippo, or Rooster influenced bloodlines. All were trail horses and did phenomenally. Our Dash bred mare is fantastic on the trails, she has some halter breeding and if I were looking again I might pass her up. She gets extremely bulky, and I'm talking solid rock muscle, if I don't watch her diet. But talk about a power house, smooth mover! I have also ridden some nice horses with Leo lines, one in particular could go all day at 26.

    Those lines are more prolific around here and I'm no expert. For endurance or trail I personally would look for an Arab or a nice QH/Arab cross.

    If you want a good drill horse, find a calm barrel horse or an ex Reiner, or really any horse with good conformation, A sound mind, experience in a rodeo scene, and a good temperament around other horses.

    I see you decided to pass but they could have honestly made a mistake. If they have several horses it is easy to mistake age on one by a fewyears. I love our HYPP n/n horse :) Good luck in your search for your new partner

    But then she said that the pedigree she posted is for a different horse. However I missed on allbreed where it said n/n as I didn't think to look. Which is why I later stated that I missed the n/n and I was just blinded by being so heavily Impressive bred on both sides

    I have 2 halter bred horses, one's been shown the other not. The one who's been shown and done well, has NO Impressive blood at all and the stallion has Impressive and is N/N. Both horses are extremely muscular and extremely willing to do anything asked of them. If the mare is N/N I wouldn't hesitate to try her out.


    Came back to add, after looking at her pedigree real close, the places where she needs to be N/N, she is. The other lines don't have Impressive, thus are N/N, so she is N/N by default. The age thing wouldn't throw me, I have several horses that are very close in age and unless I'm looking at their papers when I'm talking to you, I could give a wrong age without realizing.

    She's a halter horse through-and-through and evidenced by her show record, and that she was owned by Betty Wells, wife of deceased Jerry Wells who is THE MOST famous halter trainer ever to have shown a halter horse.
