I agree. I've seen plenty of lame horses quivering while just resting after having to hobble around for awhile.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Allbreedpedigree can sometimes have some errors in there... I guess that must be the case here, since all of the sires & dams are accounted for through 1969 (when Impressive was born). Goes to show you're better off researching through the registries if you want the facts

I checked pedigree with APHA website & it does not show impressive in it.

There is no Impressive in your horse's pedigree, no matter how far back you go. Impressive won his halter championship in 1974 then starting siring foals, your registration goes back that far, so I would say HYPP not the cause of your horse's trembling.

The previous owner told her she had Impressive. My best geuss is the owner was comfused because of Sonny Dee Bar, who was owned by the same guy that once owned Impressive (who had several owners).

1969 it was and he was an appendix horse earning his full AQHA registry in 1971. Not that it matters since the OPs horse has no Impressive blood to worry about. :)

On the site there is a form the Equine Testing submission form. Open it, print it, follow the directions, send the $$ and the hair samples as directed, and your results will be available usually within 2-4 business days of receipt of the sample. Accessible on their site (to the owner only) or via email. They will also send you a hard copy via snail mail. On the form is also the pricing. HYPP and HERDA are $30 each or $50 for both.

I have not used them, as we decided against the horse, but I did save the info and will use it if I look at another. Sure is cheaper than having the vet do it, which I had to do with a grade horse I had years ago who showed signs, but was negative. (his issue,believe it or not-the cribbing color sitting off circulation to his brain when he stretched his neck-causing seizures)

Good luck-IMO-it is worth the $$ to have the piece of mind.
Thank you! I'm $20 short for both tests (it won't hurt to check everything) so I'll probably have the test done sometime next week.

A horse trembling/shaking can be other things{Lameness,pain,PSSM,Tying up,stress etc},People fear HYPP & tend to jump on that.
Both, when I picked her foot up and and when she was just simply standing on the cross ties.

At first I thought it was tying up, but that's connected to exercising and she's been on stall rest for a week now.

I don't really care about her bloodlines, and was only notified that she had Impressive in her lines (now know she doesn't) AFTER I bought her from my cousin, a local horse trader. Paid less then $800 for her and she's the best horse I own. 3D/2D barrels, basic dressage, great ground manners, and kid safe.

If I was looking at a more expensive horse then I would've checked the registries first, but then again bloodlines shouldn't make the horse more expensive; IMO. (off topic I know )

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥
