Wow such lovely horses everywhere! Yes I also love AQHA as my mare Dedee is my darling, I got her on my 12th birthday and now I am 20 so I have kind of grown up on her. I ride english and in a coupl years (when I graduate college) I want to get into it more seriously, so I am looking to make a little sportier model, I know I can go out and buy I super awesome one, just wanted to carry on Dedee with me, she has given me a really nice paint who is at the trainer now and has turn out to be pretty athletic over jumps.
Dedee is only 14.2hh (quarter pony?) So I also want to add some height, my paint is 15 hh which is a nice height, so I think breeding her to a taller sporty horse will do great. But I am not really an appendix fan my friend has one and I love that horse but not for me.
Thanks for all the posts! Love seeing all your horses
