Alright, here's what I can tell you..I hate that there is that little chunk of information missing on her pedigree, and those are TBs I'm guessing. I can access all of the AQHA records but not the Jockey Club..Anyway, here goes..I'll start with the bigger names..Even though they are farther back than I like to see when looking at a horse, that doesn't mean that she shouldn't have a good set up as an all around horse. She is definitely bred for western disciplines. Mainly cow and foundation bred horses. There are a few running horses such as Go Man Go and Top Deck that definitely jump out at me first, because I am a runner and love those bloodlines..The mare should have a nice set up for any all around Western discipline if she has the conformation and mindset to do it.. A lot of people in the Quarter Horse world also love the Foundation bred horses, which is what a majority of the "bigger names" horses are further back in her pedigree.
I'll start with the fourth and fifth generation as they are closer and contain some of the bigger names. King Fritz

- He was named World Champion Quarter Running Horse three times in a row, one of only two horses to achieve that distinction. Go Man Go was considered to be of difficult temperament. While waiting in the starting gate for his very first race, he threw his jockey, broke down the gate, and ran alone around the track; he was eventually caught and went on to win the race. During his five years of competition until his retirement from racing in 1960 he had 27 wins, earning more than $86,000 (approximately $713,000 as of 2012). Top Deck
