1. I'm not a breeder nor do I show. I was always strictly a trail rider. That means I would never buy a horse based on its papers. I like to have the papers for conversation and research but I look at the horse and try to assess how it will perform the intended job.
2. Based on these papers, I hope you don't plan on using this horse for breeding stock. There's a great-grandparent (Cutlass Supreme) that is pure Standardbred. The progeny can never be more than 7/8ths TWH, therefore not eligible for registry with TWHBEA.
If this horse is registered thru TWHBEA, I would like to know how that happened as they do not allow part-breeds into the registry.
If this horse is registered in NWHA or that International Walking Horse Association, they are newer registries. I'm pretty sure NWHA was formed in direct opposition to TWHBEA.
3. That all said, for the sake of the horse, I hope you are not a person who bases your ownership of this horse solely on its papers. This is your first post and frankly your questions come across that way:)
