Need suggestions for pony hunter stallions to cross on 14.1h mare
After swearing up and down that I am not breeding anymore, I find myself with an interesting pony mare laid up for a year. I have always wanted to breed her as she is such a cool athlete, early spring may be the time! She is 14.1h, by Gayfields Vida Blue (13h) and out of a 15.3 h TB mare. I would like to breed ideally for a big large, or a big medium. It will be a first foal, so I think I can gamble a little on size. Mare is a fabulous jumper with a huge step and natural changes. Don't want to take any of that away. Would like to improve her trot, refine her head (she is attractive but not doll faced), and would love something that has reliably produced quiet temperaments. I like the Empire's Power and Mapleside Mr Magic offspring for these requirements, but am a little concerned with size. Any thoughts or other suggestions?
