Exclamation Which horse would be better for halter?

Arizona (not a good conformation shot)
Pros - pretty head, nice neck, feminine head
Cons - thin built, stands a bit off behind, not built like a typical Quarter Horse

Pros - nice thick build, balanced, no glaringly obvious conformation issues, built more like a typical Quarter Horse/Paint
Cons - not a very feminine head

A better conformation shot for Arizona will help me and others tell you more about her. I really like Mable. Unless a better picture of Arizona shows outstanding conformation, I would choose Mable to show. She looks closer to a halter horse and will probably do better in shows. This is just my personal opinion. I like thicker built horses. Some people and judges may be different.

They're both cute! But from the pictures you have, Mable is definately a better choice for halter.
