Binky- sorry to burst your bubble but I am a hunter/jumper at heart! I am just dabbling in the western world ... I have ridden/shown enlish since I was 8 and even rode in college on the equestrian team .. haha but I am glad you like Brodie!
You have done a great job with him! He looks 10 times better than the 1st photo, and looks so well cared for.
If he has the mind, he could for sure be a reiner. That's the most important thing! He looks like he'd be a great turn back horse at the cuttings - I love being on turn back. It's fast and fun. Also a great way to expose your boy to new things and increase his responsiveness.
He's a cutie, I can see him doing some team pennings! As far as reining and cutting, he can probly do both those also. With cutting bloodlines definitely help my cutting horse is a poco bueno baby his registered name is way bueno. Reining isnt to hard as long as he has a good stop and will turn on a dime but those can be worked on if he doesnt. I see no reason why he couldnt do any of the things you want him to.
Great looking horse.
I hope you don't mind me asking but, what kind of boots does your horse have on? I am having a problem choosing boots for my Quarter Horse and those look good.
They are Sports Medicine Boots Elite ... if you go to discounthorse.come you can get the 4 pack and they give you free bell boots for $135 ... that is the cheapest I have found. I always say that my SMB are the cheapest insurance possible :)
