Looking for the right stud for my reining mare!
Hey everyone,

I would like to breed my 2006 AQHA mare either this season or next, but I'm really at a loss as to which stallion(s) out there might be best for her. There are so many good horses to choose from!!

My mare is a well-muscled girl, with nice heavy bones. She's a little bit long in the back and she also has a splint on each of her front legs (right under her knees), so she needs a stud with straight, strong legs. Unfortunately the studs I like tend to also be her heavier, more muscled type and I've been told I should choose a "lighter", more performance type stud instead... She's also a little long in the face so a stallion with a pretty head would be a plus (but obviously not a must).

She is talented and quiet and extremely good-minded. Her father is an own son of Hollywood Dun It out of Zans Diamond Lass. Her dam is sired by Tejon's Peppy Doc and is out of a Master Boot Jac mare (so Hollywood Jac on both sides). I love the "Jacs", but can't use one on her :-(

She has beautiful color!! I really don't care too much about the color of the foal *except* that I don't like the splash pattern or blue eyes...which is unfortunate because it rules out a lot of Gunners. ;-)

I can send photos of her to anyone interested. Any tips for me?

Could you post some pics of her please? :) I wanna see this beautiful girl.

I'd look at Chic Please, RC Fancy Step(chance of a double dilute,tho) and there are a couple others I really like, but sure can't think of right now, lol!

I'm breeding my mare to RC Fancy Step and have seen him in person, he is MUSCULAR and gorgeous in person. His foals are really typy for reining horses, those I've seen anyways, but you are looking at a possible cremello foal, and may not want one.

Chic Please has been a longtime favorite of mine, his fee is very affordable and he is a proven performer and producer. I love his looks and will probably breed to him in a couple years when I'm ready for another prospect out of my mare.

How is your mare bred? What level do you show her since you say she is a reiner? I'd love to see some pics! I don't show, but sure hope to later on!

There are too many to choose from without more info on your horse's conformation. Please post pics! These are a couple of Junior Sires that I like that aren't of the Jac line, and aren't Gunners either: Imacockadoodledude,, Sterling Ranch ~ Smart Spook, Mister Montana Nic - NRHA, AQHA Performance Stallion, Big Time), Boom Shernic: 2004 AQHA Reining Stallion

I think I may know a few you may be interested in looking at. Also, this link lists a few reining stallions, along with western pleasure: Stallions Heritage Ranch Heritage Ranch

Big Chex To Cash is also a very good stallion. I know a very good reigning mare out of a horse called Dealin Dirty. She was a world finalist. If you could get a breeding to Smart Chic Olena, that would be great. Just look around though. Find some ranch websites and see the horses they have and their bloodlines and the stallions they have there. I'm sad because I can't find the one I always use, guess It's been deleted...

I don't like the Boomernic line heads. Sure are talented though. I vote for RC Fancy Step, Mister Montana Nic, or Smart Spook.

I am breeding my Dun It mare to The Great White Hope this year. Really like this stallion. He is young and just starting his show carrier but from what I have seen he is going to be a nice one. It is going to be one of those get it at a good price how or pay a lot more letter type of deals.
