    I've seen what you are talking about but the one's I know were custom (I think Kentucky). There are some nice coats here.

    I agree on Smoke on the Water (and that she does get in really nice horses). Smoke on the Water was a very cool horse. I was very impressed by them at Rolex....so sad she lost him so soon.

    I do agree with that. And she can ride under pressure. That isn't something you can easily teach. But we do not know what the vet reports are or other inside knowledge---and that often plays a...

    It is calculated for you on that web site. I think it is the average of 9 generations But many of those horses had a lot of blood up close in the first 2-3 generations. Sam is by a TB out of a...

    Looking at the pedigrees for the German WEG team---Ingrid's horse Escada is less than 30% blood http://www.horsetelex.com//horses/pedigree/707799

    Lumi's sire (Lux Z) is 48.24% blood. Lumi's dam sire (Cavalier Royal) is 51.76% blood. Arctic Que on his dam line is full TB as is Water Serpent and there is a bit more in there.

    Comparison of TB pedigrees

    OK--there are certain lines of TBs that I have familarity. I know what type of horse to expect with those lines.

    I do have a "type" of horse that I like but more a type of ride that I like than...

    By my calculations, Lumi is roughly 46.31% but that is a rough estimate. He also does not have much blood up close so most of his percentage is coming from further back. I personally like to see...

    The precentage of blood is imporant. I know several top riders who dabbled with the WBs and now will NOT look at anything for a 3-4* horse that has less than 60% blood and they prefer higher. It...

    Eventing isn't all about you. It is about your partnership with your horse. There is a reason that you do not see a lot of "catch" riding in eventing. Best is to get an appropriate horse for you...

    It is possible but NOT probable. You do not need a string of horses BUT the horse you need now to learn the sport is NOT likely the horse that will take you to the UL. But you are a LONG way from...

    I know....I bet if this becomes more regular with GM....they will put up some great video coverage. They seem like that sort of facility that will keep improving as they do more.

    WEG Prep coverage

    EN posted a link to some of the local media coverage for the WEG prep trial at Great Meadows.

    Well...I'll go against the trend a bit and don't think a running will do much for him.

    I agree that he does look best with Jennie on him...but well, that is Jennie riding him ;)

    yes and no. Eventing takes feel and reaction time that is built through experience. You don't need top of the line equipment as much as you need really good training.

    again. The Competition IS different. But NOT the homework. That is my point. You prep the same in the sense that you ride under pressure more. You set up courses to jump cold. You jump odd and...

    If you like Traks, look at Future Gravitas. He is half brother of Windsome Adante. I have a TB mare in foal to him for a 2015 foal. That foal will be more than 75% blood. I think he is going to...

    i call BS. Eventers do aim to make it look smooth and nice. No. We are not judged on "style". But the fact remains, that no one schools the course first and you have to prep your horse to jump cold...

    No one on the US list. Perhaps 20 horses in the initial announcements was for more Canadian riders?

    The US list was always just 14--so 13 with Jan out.
