Compare the looks of a western or english pleasure QH to a cutting horse. Does not really matter if she is full QH or not as long as she does what you need her to do.
I am curious to why you had her hobbled in the one pic, wasn't she tied? i may have missed that.
Good luck with her,
It doesn't matter to me if she is "full" qtr horse. The main reason I posted this is because i am getting so much crap for the "rescued qtrhorse" that I got duped on. I felt I knew what I was looking at. I saw potential and here almost a year later I am still getting harrassed about my "draft horse". This by a vet who specializes in eventing horses and is a reproductive specialist in equines.
No. She wasn't hobbled in those photos. We hobble break all our ranch horses and when those photos were taken she was already hobble broke. Those pics were supposed to be just for me. I had bathed her, trimmed her feet and started training her main to one side that day. When we got her we had to clip her main very short due to many bald spots.
Those "hobbles" are for training purposes. She paws when tied up, even when hobbled. So in order to break the habbit by her own duing we put those seperated hobbles (sometimes dog collars) with chains hanging. Every time she paws the chain pops her in the legs. The harder she paws the harder the chain hits. It is very affective for stopping pawing. Best of all she trains herself. It is a bad habbit to have and the earlier we stop it the better rounded the horse is. Especially if this horse ends up being sold because she doesn't work out for ranch work.
