You make that choice it sounds like you want to be a trainer/breeder typ so I say if you really want to do this then why not?
It makes sense to me
Basically both are pretty much equal. I like that the first one went the extra mile and got registered with the AWR and was first premium.
The second one has the advantage of having the foals able to be shown under certain programs and the jump is better on this pony.
Because your horse is a cross and the foal could only be register as half the payback program of the second pony may be redundant. The first one may give you more registration options.
Conformation...the first one
Jump...the second one.
