Another thread - Jumper stallion for TB
I know, I know, 10,000 threads on this subject and I've been reading them, so please bear with me.
I am looking for a Show Jumping stallion to pair with a showjumping champion TB mare (NOT hunter type). The mare is a good rectangular model, long-legged, with a lemme-at-em competitive attitude, a keen jump, lots of personality, very bold, very athletic mare with no vices who is exceptionally intelligent thus always required a witty rider although she is an honest, straight-arrow mare. She's also stayed sound through her racing and subsequent showjumping careers. She was champion at the Calgary June Series (show jumping) this year.
As like most TB's, she could use a better neck and loin connection although she's not too bad herself, still, it's better to always improve.
So, I am very specifically looking for GP jumper stallions with excellent type and legs and feet, rideability, abilities, and kind temperament is an absolute must. And, must have proven propensity to improve type, legs and jump whilst maintaining said workable personality. Not asking for much, hey? :lol:
There are a couple fire-breathing dragons in her sireline (2 gens back), but her mareline seems to dominate and is rather high performance line and she follows her mareline.
Was looking at Balou and sons, some of the Holstein C-line, the KWPN Valentino and Nijhof's Canabis-Z and Zacharov, but would like some additional options (especially since I'm mostly a dressage breeder/rider, so I'm foraying into new territory here and while I've been studying lineages like crazy for the past year, I need a boost from jumper breeders).
Any registry is fine, as is fresh or frozen.
