Hi, I'm Teri Carter of Saddlebrook Stables in Castle Hayne, North Carolina. And today I am going to talk to you about how to select a good quarter horse breeder. The first thing you want to do is first decide what you would like your quarter horse to do. Quarter horses are geared towards doing anything, they are a versatile breed. They could do English, Western, jumping or even racing. So, what you want to do, first of all, is you want to research your breeder and find out if his or her stallion is geared toward the discipline that you so desire in your particular horse. Then what you would like to do, you can kind of check up on the horse that you have chosen to breed to by looking in the Quarter Horse Journal to see what this particular horse has accomplished, and what his offspring in particular have accomplished. Sometimes the offspring is a better test of what your horse can throw as opposed to what he has accomplished himself. So, if the children of the horse has accomplished a great deal, you can be pretty sure that he is going to throw good characteristics to your horse; the one that you so desire. And that is how to select a good quarter horse breeder.
