    Heart is the biggest factor.
    The ability to stay calm under pressure.
    Agility and speed.

    Athletic conformation helps, but for me I pay a lot of attention to their temperament.

    Yeah, I mean I don't care what they look like, as long as they can physically do the work I'm asking of them. And I don't want to make them if they freak out going into the ring and obviously don't want to work with me. Its not like I'm just going to race the thing then put 'im up. The best prat of owning a horse is having that relationship.

    Oops. O_0 I babbled.
    But yeah... I'll just have to see I suppose :)
