i dont think she would but i dont own any reiners, to me it looks like her front end is lower then her back end is but maybe thats how shes standing. Um she is kinda short for a reiner my friend bought 3 NRHA reiners and both measured out to be around 15'3 -16'2, not that short horses are bad i personally own acouple i say they aren't short their fun sized but thats what i think bout her would make a nice cutter with the right training!
well NRHA those horses they bought have won bought 25,000 - 30,000 each in their career and they were sticked at the auction and at home both times two of the horses had 16'2 and the other one was at 15'3 and T asked to see proff of the wins and the previous owner had copies of the check, buckles, trophys you name it she had it in her trailer(she owned all three of them)
well they didn't buy them to keep showing them they just picked em up at an auction out in billings, as the papers go i dont even know if they made them out of the truck when we got to the farm. i could ask where they are but the guys usually only keep track of their horses papers. I know that they bought 1 mare and 1 stud and a gelding will ask them to look for papers tonite and if they find em post the names in the morning
I agree with NRHAreiner. I wouldn't even look at a horse that tall. I had a mare that was about 15.1hh maybe 15.2hh and she was a good reiner, and she could do all the manuvers. But then I got my 14hh mare and the difference is huge!! It's so much easier for my little mare to get herself turned around and roll back pretty because she's more compact.
My trainer loves the 13.3hh stud he rides, he prefers the smaller horses.
Being 5'10 I like to keep mine at the 14'2-15hh mark. Which is what most of mine are. My stallion is 15'2 but he is no more then a green/rookie horse. His forte is more HUS and that is what he sires also. But he enjoys doing the reining so I take him at times. However it is hard to haul more then 2 horses for me to ride so he dose not go very often.
Well there are some conformation defalts... plus she REALLY bumm high. I personally wouldnt pick her out of a crowd of horses and say 'Thats my reiner" no offence to your horse but its true. Shes very pretty and I think the level that you ride would also matter.
I personally think she has beautiful muscle structure to her, and I'm just INLOVE with her hind end lol. Height shouldn't make a difference, like nrhareiner said. She is a beautiful looking mare, good luck with your training, and I wish you both the best!
