Who would you breed this mare to?
I currently own a 12 y/o Oldenburg Mare (http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/inde...all_font=1&l=) and am thinking about breeding her in the near distant future.
She's 17hh and quite leggy,is a great mover and has a good mind. She's a great hunter but has also shown in the jumper ring quite extensively as well. While not a hot horse, she is able to carry some pace and has a large stride.
Main area that I would like to improve upon is scope (she's not completely lacking, but tops out around 1.20-1.30m) and would like a little more expressiveness from the hind end.
Ideally, offspring would be geared toward the jumper ring.
Conformation (she's not normally so bum-high, picture is on a slight incline): http://www.judgemyride.net/wp-conten...09/photo21.jpg
I've never bred a horse before, so I'm a pretty big noob with this whole thing. Let me know if you need other information in order to make a good suggestion. Budget is not a big factor at this point.
I basically just want some input from those with far more experience and knowledge than me - if this was your horse and you were breeding to try and produce a high quality jumper prospect, what would you do?
