Sorry guys....just not an Impressive fan, after having owned them, had them in the barn, and years of experience with them etc. Not my cup of tea at all for many reason (mindset and conformation characteristics). I'm glad those that own one enjoy them....but after 50 odd years in this biz, I would not own another. And yes....those characteristics can shine through no matter what else is in there.

I love my impressive bred mare. LOVE her. She is very, well, impressive. Her last 4 judge show, we won Grand in Halter under two, Reserve under two. Then won the western pleasure, then my daughter hopped on and pointed in Barrel Racing. Next day, won the Hunter Under Saddle and Eq. She finished the year our Paint Horse Club's Novice High Point by over 100 points, and Reserve Open High Point. She's not my first impressive bred and won't be my last. I think she's like an Arab, very smart and retains lots of stuff in her "toolbox". I try to only put good things in her toolbox. She was started correctly, has been trained correctly, and treated correctly. Her dad was a Superior Western Pleasure horse, mom was impressive bred halter type mare and the cross was fantastic (Impressive 4 generations back). Did she get her temperament from her great, great, great, great grandfather - doubt it . Her mom was a nice bodied mare with a very sane mind, as was her dad. That would be my guess as to why I got such a nice mare - and as her full brother won the World Championship in Western Pleasure, I'd guess it wasn't a fluke.
