Short summary
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the glycogen synthase 1 (GYS1) mutation on performance traits in Noriker draft horse stallions. Individual scores of 32 performance traits were obtained from 169 stallions that took part in the 30-day performance test. The traits were analyzed using a linear model including the GYS1 mutation genotype, the testing year, and age as fixed effects. For the final performance score and 29 traits, no effect of the GYS1 mutation could be found.
