The daughter that wanted her backed out, but I think we'll keep her - even if she does get really tall. As sweet and gentle as she is, she might make a decent horse.

Trainer friend said it was such a pity she wasn't registered - she would have been great as a jumper. I didn't know they had to be registered for that. BUT - this is cowboy country anyway - and she will probably be stout like both her parents - maybe make a reiner or a roper? Barrel racer (granddaughter would LOVE that!)

You have been listening to too many people on this forum! I don't see why a "mutt" is any less of a horse than a registered horse. They may not have as much monetary value, but they can be every bit as good (or better) as a riding and pleasure horse.

Not exactly listening to them. There are some grade horses that I have seen sell for $10,000 - $15,000 - but they were special - well trained, experienced rodeo horses.

I just don't see Rain being one of those. Her being a great riding horse, though, is pretty much a given. She's even showing signs she may single-foot just like her momma!

Hey, a good horse is a good horse regardless of papers.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Agreed! Unless one is planning on breeding at some point, I don't really see the need for papers on a using horse. Nor does a using horse have to be perfect!

Precisely. Shoot, my best horse is a mutt and there are very few people in this world who would have enough money to even make me consider selling him.
