There are 4 inches in a hand, so 50 inches is 12.2 hands and yes, the mare is 16 hands.

She has the bloodline potential to be a money earner in the cutting arena. The only problem with that is, the training and tune-ups and show costs for cutting horses is expensive...and not really conducive to making kid horses LOL.

Unless you want to be competative in cutting, I would just get a solid base of training on her. Have a trainer that will ride her a million miles on trails, through town, along highways, etc and expose her to anything and everything scary. If you eventually decide you (or someone in your family) wants to get into something like sorting or penning or even cutting in smaller shows, then you can talk to a cutting trainer about putting a little cow training on her.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I think that is the direction I am heading smrobs

1. - make her safe
2. - train her so the kids can ride her

3. In 3-4 years if my kids are interested -- I will get her cutting training

I wish I was in a situation where I could take a horse.. that is a filly I would want.. if she looks like those blood lines say she should look!

Get a trainer involved and get someone involved to give lessons to you all. A horse or horses for a family centric activity is great but you need to involve professionals.

This is not for the feint of heart or the feint of finances.

And I will say again.. get that filly looked at by someone who knows cutting horses. Seriously. She might have what it takes to go far.... those horses can even earn money (and where are the pictures?????)

Got some pics from this morning ---
