Rein/cow horse prospect?? (pic Heavy)

This is my girl duchess i would like to make her a rein/cow horse, but i dont know if she can make one. Here are some confo shots (sorta maybe lol) of her, to be somewhat kind, she is my baby. Here is her pedigree Usher Duchess Quarter Horse , no her pedigree aint anything wonderful, just foundation and cow, but im not looking for a big time horse, just one to get started going on on. Let me knwo what you think, if she will make on or not. She is 7 years old 15.3 hands tall. She is a big girl, but she can get down and dirty like a little horse, sit down, sotp, spin, turn around and be gone in a second lol. In the one pic her foot is turned in alot, she does not stand that way, she is very correct in her legs, i just couldnt get her to stand spuare for the life of me. The ground is also at a slope. Ill also put up a couple of her undersaddle.

I like her, I think she's an overall cute little mare. A little thick and heavy in the neck for my tastes but she's pretty heavy foundation bred and that's not so uncommon. I like her lines too, oooold lines. She's what she is supposed to be and she's fairly well balanced. If she's willing I don't think you'd have any problem doing reined cow horse events with her, especially if you aren't planning on doing it big time. Good luck and have fun!

Gosh she's big.

She looks pretty correct and I love that little baby doll head.

I think she'd do well at cow events, provided she gets in shape (quite a little belly on her ;]) But overall, I think she'd do really well.

Wow, if I was in the market for another horse, I would come steal her. She is what a QH should look like. Broad, stocky, muscular, and stout with enough leg and foot to support it. I am not overly familiar with her bloodlines but there is no doubt in my mind that with proper training, she could be a great cow horse. She is just a beauty.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
