However, just because she is bred for cutting and western work, there is nothing that says that is the job she needs. :)
The guy that I got her from he took her 1 year old full brother to a rodeo to get him used to the environment, and he said the colt just about drug him down to where the cows were. The guy that I got her from is a friend of mine and my horse mentor, and he already has a stud picked out to breed her to after we win a world championship.
He has high hopes for her, and he even talked his sister, who works with a top reining trainer and is a and dressage trainer herself, into taking her and training her for a year.
On a sad note, though, her mom is getting put to sleep today. She's been lame off and on again for the past year or so, and it finally got so bad that she went down and they almost weren't able to get her back up again. They took her to the vet and got her x-rayed, and it turns out that part of her coffin bone had broken off and was floating around in her hoof and giving her abcesses, and the vet reccomended putting her down.
Edit: Oh, and she's definitely also going to go english as well. I want to learn how to ride western, but english is my calling.
