Breeders will be especially interested in McLean's analysis of the conformation of many of the breed's most illustrious sires and the physical attributes and faults they passed on to their progeny.

For Ella, winning has always been the goal, and at Quartz Creek Ranch, she's pretty sure she'll ace horseback riding too. There's just one hitch in her plan: Figure Eight, the beautiful quarter horse she's paired with, won't listen to a word she says.
