What to look for when choosing a Halter Stud?

I am wanting to breed my APHA halter mare who has never been show. I was wondering what I should look for in the stud? and if you know of any QH or Paint halter studs at stud for under 500 please let me know. Also any tips would be appreciated since it will be my first foal as well as my mares first.

To start with, make sure your mare is 5 panel tested, as well as tested for frame, and make sure the Stallion is also 5 panel tested and tested for frame. You don't want any surprises when it comes to genetic diseases and HYPP and PSSM can be prevalent in the halter industry.

Do you have any conformation shots of your mare? Having good conformation shots of the mare would help choose a stud that would compliment her.

If I were to rank those three studs, just based on conformation, I'd put Kids Gotta Secret first, then Dirty Impression, then Invited Back. I don't like that Invited Back doesn't have any conformation shots on his site. Also, he looks more like a HS stud than a halter stud.

What are your plans for the foal?

I do not have any conformation shots of her but for the foal I plan on showing as long as I can and then going onto speed events and Western pleasure.

Personally I would pick a stud that has good sound feet and produces good sound feet. My horse's pasture companion is a halter bred paint. Gorgeous horse with a lovely temperament but her feet are so poor that she's unsound at ten years of age. My farrier shoes a 60-horse paint show barn. He told me that out of all those horses there are maybe three with good feet. Three.

Paint halter people must not give a flying fart about the future of their breed, is my conclusion. Prove me wrong by putting soundness first when you look for a stud. Starting with the feet.

If you want to use the horse for something other than halter, then I wouldn't look at halter studs. Not many of them make good using horses.
