Daydreaming about reining...

I ride english. But I love reining
I have a holsteiner mare that definitly couldn't do reining, and I have no plans or wishes to sell her because of it. I can't aford another horse, so for now I just dream about western and reining.

In four, five years situation could get better and then I want to buy a nice qh mare, that I would also be able to breed, if she is good in reining.
I'm on the SIQHA (slovenian AQHA) pages all days, checking horses.
I don't know a lot about conformation, or how a reining horse should be built. I don't know which names should be in the pedigree.

So, could you tell me what I'm looking for?

Now what do you think about this mare (2008)?

I'm not to great with critiquing horses conformation but names you would want to look for on a reiners papers would be..........shining spark, topsail whiz, hollywood jac 86, hollywood dun it, reminic, gunner, wimpys little step, smart chic olena, and even cowhorse sires like peppy san badger and smart little lena etc.

She looks like a pretty girl :) But she really doesn't have the greatest conformation around. For starters, look at her haunches. They are higher than her withers, which is undesirable in any discipline, and can make it difficult for the horse to perform. Her chest isn't very impressive, either. Her neck is a bit short, and her throatlatch looks thin and sort of gangly. Her head looks too big for her neck, but I like her eye. Also, she has an awful parrot mouth.

She's only three, so things could change... But for the most part, I don't think they will. She isn't the most desirable speciman for you by any means.
