Yes I know they are not like TWH. However they are still gated. Like you said they can do it. However there is a difference between doing something and doing it well or in the case of reining doing it like a QH would. Dose not mean they can not do it at the level of a breed show. Just like Paint horses are not normally at the top of the NRHA even the ones who win at the breed level. Dose not mean they are not good at it.
When I go and look at a reining prospect. I look at conformation and take that into consideration. However spend more time just watching them move. Especailly at the walk. I want to see not only how they move but how they turn and the walk it a great gate to see this. If they do not do certain things at the walk chances are they will not do them at any other gate either. MFT you do not normally see them move like that. However the way they are built dose lend them to driving under themselves well in the rear which can lead to a nice way of working if you can get it put together.
Like I said I like the way she looks. She looks like she should be able to rein and do quite well at her breed level. I really like how she ties in at the neck and shoulder. She is not so wide that will hender her in her turns. She is well balanced over all.
