I'm not big on pedigrees but if you wanna talk about confirmation I found a good video on YouTube. Look up reining horse conformation a video by Larry Trocha will come up. I found it pretty interesting and simple. He goes over every part of what he looks for in his future reiners.

I watch his videos all the time, but have never seen his conformation film. It was very helpful! Now I will know what to look for when searching for a stud ;)

Keep in mind that although what he is saying is what you want. Just b/c a horse posses that conformation does not automatically mean that horse will make a good reiner. Also there are certain lines in which do not cross very well with others. So it is more then just finding a certain look or a winning line or horse. It is a combination of all of the above.

Definitely what NRHA said. A friend of mine has a horse bred to the 9's for reining... She couldn't do any of the maneuvers so save her life! Even after being to a few trainers. She did have a heck of a jump though! She would jump ANYTHING.

nrha, is that your Hollywood mare? She's gorgeous.

I agree with everything nrha and smrobs have said, even though there's not really much else to add. She's definitely running bred on the top and cutting on the bottom. I love the running/cow bred mix in my horses.

Yep that is my Dun It mare. She is a very storg producer. Her foals all look a lot alike and like her. If he was not smaller then she is with a bit more white you could not tell the differance between her and her Rooster colt.

As you can see in this picture of this colt at less then about a month old. He has a very thick hart gurth and flank area. Even more so now.

I love her, she's a very well built and nice looking mare.. It's good to get ahold of a nice producer like she is too.
