Well she is bred for it that's for sure! Most of your good reiners aren't very tall. Having a horse do both reining and WP well, is very hard because both disciplines ask for different type of movement, and the training is totally different. Now, reining and doing Horsemaship...yep, that would work because so many of the Horsemanship patterns these days are asking for reining type moves and speeds, slow and fast circles etc.

I don't mean to be nosey, but just learn more about it.. What did you have to do to be selected and such?
You aren't being nosey! :) Well I found out about it through one of the AQHA emails I get, and it is open for a few months in the beginning of summer for applications. The application is called an 'enrollment form' and it just has you tell some information about where you could keep the foal and stuff about you and also you have to write a 200-word essay on why you would like an AQHA weanling!

I'm really excited to participate this year!

Here are a couple more links that explain it! :)

Very true! Haha I probably won't do WP at AQHA shows but I'll probably sneak into a few schooling shows here for practice and experience! Oh yeah I'll definitely do horsemanship too! Haha I forgot about it! I'm very excited for her :)
