So one day I hope to be able to show my horse. I just love my horse to death, and I think she’s full of potiential.

My friend told me that bloodlines were important in shows. So I wanted to know what everyone thought of her bloodlines:

Oh BTW, if anyone is wondering how Go Boy is her father. He had somehow gotten lose in Jo Belles pen, stall, pasture or whatever.

I have never been to a show (of any kind) where they check a horses papers. Your friend may have meant that certain bloodlines tend to perform or place better than other bloodlines. That is pretty standard for most breeds (the "trendy" blood line of the moment) this is usually based on how animals from that bloodline look or carry themselves.

Your mare has Collectors Go Boy as both a sire and Grandsire - I am not sure if that is to her advantage or a disadvantage. The picture on all breed is not flattering to your mare - I realize she is young and has some years for filling out and growing to do.

Her success in the show ring will really depend on what kind of show you want to do and her training.

We have 3 TWH and love them all.

Papers only matter if you are showing in a breed show and that's really only to prove your breed. The names on the paper aren't as important as far as showing go's. The names on the paper will give you a good indication of what style of riding your horse is best suited for and if they might be a good candidate for the halter ring and maybe for breeding purposes.

I don't know alot about the TWH shows other than what I've read on the internet so can't help you much there but you can look into open shows. Many of them have classes for gaited horses and they don't look for the "big lick" type of riding. They look for a more natural gait.
