Today is the day.. Guy im nervous

Well this afternoon we're going to look at the filly. Im so nervous that I didnt sleep a wink last night. Im excited but worried that Im going to be disappointed. Im hoping for a show prospect and am hoping that she is as correct as the lady says she is. Im not that experienced with look for show correctness so I hope I don't over look something. I know you want to look for straightness of the legs, shoulder, how well they square up and last but not least the jaw. I was told I need to check the bite and see if it lines up correctly. I know nothing of her pedigree but that isnt going to be a deal breaker if she doesnt have "huge" names, as ped doesnt make a good show horse, correctness and conformation does. What do you guys say? Even if she doesnt have a extraordinary bloodlines but is conformationally correct I.e. Good bite, good shoulder angle, straight legs and squares up nicely and all would you consider buying her?

I don't know anything about mini's really...but if you want to show in breed shows they must be registered. That being said, I don't know the regulations for registering a miniature.

Bloodlines are great, but it's the individual horse that matters :)

A show horse for halter must have excellent conformation but also has to have "presence" Mares need to look like mares and stallions need to look like an obvious stallion. Its all part of the package. You do want straight legs but an nicely angled shoulder. Pretty head, big eye and a long fine neck. Short tight back and nice long underline.

Good luck in your search

I own 5 horses and 4 miniatures.I look for breeding.I have 2 miniature mares
A filly 10-11 months old and a mare she's under the age of 10.
I looked at her teeth.Fillies are very frisky (well mine is).none of my horses are registered (unless my aunt did).I have a show stallion,but I can't put him in shows (he doesn't have his papers)
If she is a good horse and is nice enough for show,i would buy her,on the other hand,if she is not a great show horse I wouldn't.
