What's she bred for?

I've taken an interest QH bloodlines and the difference in builds for the different jobs/events. So I've become interested in if my old mare was actually bred for something specific, or if she was just a jumble of QHs.

She was my "first" horse and she lived to a nice age of 27. I don't have many pictures of her on this computer, so this one is when she was 25. It was the year her back started dropping like that. As far as I know she only had two foals, one is registered APHA, and apparently was a stud at one point. I've been trying to find out about him, but not having an APHA membership is making that tricky.


So basically I'm asking if her bloodlines would suggest a certain job/event she could have excelled at and if her build suits it.
