Competitive enough for Breed shows?

I've shown paint horses for years and have done western pleasure for a long time. I've never done breed shows and don't know what caliber of yearling I would need to succeed. Not win World or anything, just do well. I do plan on training the yearling myself as a 4H project and later have a trainer polish the horse. I have no videos and these are the only pictures I could find. There are two horses. Both come from Reisinger Farms ( I heard that the horses out of there can be average- what do you think?) Which horse appears to be a better fit for APHA or in the geldings case APHA/AQUA. Please state WHY you think teach horse would or would not be suited. And if you possibly have time, Reisinger Farms has other yearlings you could see, but I liked these best.

The first gelding is called In The Fast Lane. He is eligible for AQUA and APHA. His sire is Sudden Instinct.

The second filly called Fantastically Zipped by Mr Zip O Rock. APHA .

Both are yearlings from 2012.

Without video, you can't tell anything.

Why don't you ask for a video of those two horses?

I can't buy until winter so I didn't want to impose or anything like that.

They will more than likely have some videos of them on youtube, so I'd just e-mail them and ask.

I'm having trouble though reconciling your desire to do this as a 4H project, with the statement that you have shown Paints for years and done WP a long time. Two seem mutually exclusive to me.

And if you are wanting to go to breed shows, I think I would not mess with training as a 4H project, but get a good horse, and start it out with a trainer, as it will be much harder for trainer to undo something than to do it right first time.

Baby Huey came from Reisinger thru Handeland Pleasure Horses in Iowa.

I am in the upper 4H years and have shown for about 7-8 years in western pleasure with exclusively paints ( my previous instructor was obsessed with paints and I started WP when I was 6 ) also not including my riding since I was 2, and we had started into breed shows two years ago but only made it to one show and that was with a green horse with bad attitude that I had not been riding long so we didn't do well. Her sister in law died and breed shows were put on hold. Just because I'm in 4H and am a teen doesn't mean that I haven't shown for a while. And 7 years is plural. Hence the 'years'. I have a friend who trained her horse for a 4H project and they win regularly. Just because it's not professionally trained doesn't mean the horse won't do well. I don't expect to win much because I don't know the right people anyways.

Also, if that'show I want to train a horse and it's not abusive( I won't ruin him/her) then that's my decision although I appreciate the fact that you believe I would be better off with a trainer. I do plan on consulting a trainer on a regular basis as I'm fairly certain that's allowed. I'm involved in 4H and that's a good thing so if I want to do this it will be a good experience for me. You have to start somewhere. Why not now right?

Thank you all for the advice and I will consider it all.

They certainly have to looks! But the question is, can they move to back the looks up?!

A lot of it is also going to do with conformation. See if you can also ask to see some conformation photos.

I own a gelding from Reisinger Farms and am very, very happy with him. We do mainly Pinto Horse shows, and did the Pinto world this year. Took home a couple top 10's and a top 5 in HUS. Reisinger was there as well, and they had a few World Champs. They are super nice horses! (and super nice people too!)
