Quarter Horse Halter class

Is there anything about the quarter horse breed you must specifically do for halter classes? I am new to showing halter. Any tips?

Well, you need a halter bred horse. And typically the horses are lunged for long periods of time in deep sand and fed high protein so they get that muscled look. If you are showing open shows with your horse, all you have to do is trot them around and square them up for the judge. Although if you are showing an AQHA breed show and your horse is not halter bred, I would stick to showmanship - or performance halter. Typically performance halter classes are for performance-bred horses. Love to see a picture of your horse.

The typical AQHA halter stallion type:

Thankyou! I'm thinking he's not quite cut out for halter, but i'll try showmanship with him! Here is a picture from an open showmanship show a couple weeks ago

Well, he's not a quarter horse. He may have quarter breeding in him, but that color is not recognized by aqha. He could be paint, but if he's unregistered...hed be a grade pinto.

And he'll do much better in showmanship. Halter horses are...brick houses.

He could win over any judge with that sweet face though!

Depending on the size of show he may or may not do good in a halter class. AQHA doesnt allow that color but you could have him in APHA is he's registered or grade halter classes.
The typical halter horse is hugely muscled.
He would be more performance type. Depending on what size of curcuit and what size of class he could do good if he's well defined and has good confo.
But I would stick to more showmanship than halter.

Actually AQHA do recognize crop out paints now. Which is a paint out of two quarter horse parents, ever since APHA made the rule that a registered paint has to have 1 paint parent, and wont register AQHA cropouts any more.

I remember when cremellos were considered crop outs and wouldn't be accepted AQHA either! Glad that one changed!

Yes, but tobiano is not recognized by AQHA. (Sorry, should have specified more in my original post)
