    He's doing fabulously! I'll be cheering for him on Sat (ok...I pretty much cheer for everyone but still :) )

    As others have posted...not at all. Whenever there are some lines doubled up (or more), it increases the chances of certain characteristics of that line to be passed on.....this is why it is done. ...

    my yearling that I think will hit over 17 hands was 15.3 at 12 months....her dam is 17.3 and while I bred to a smaller sire.....she will likely be mom' size.

    Mine get RB. I do not have ANY that...

    Not enough blood for what you want. Yes...many WBs have half TB blood but typically it is because there is some serious HEFT in the other half. An while the F1 cross came out ok...the heft tends to...

    Correct....fixed part xc is 1.1. FEI 1* is generally like a hard national Prelim HT on xc.

    Dimensions can be found in Annex B here (scroll toward the end). ...

    Many were cross entered with the Euro Champs and expected to be WD.

    I know of several. Mostly Tweens and young 20 year olds...a couple that are older though and should know better. Most people by the time they get into their mid-30s smarten up a bit and have...

    This would also make it very clear to me that you need to stick with a full TB sire.


    There are a few available frozen here: http://www.superiorequinesires.com/stallion-list-breeds.php

    What worked for me is using regular rubber reins on the snaffle...and a thinner braided rein on the gag so I could feel the difference. quite easy to use once you get use to it....and yes, at times,...

    Lots of horses eventing with old suspensory injuries (at even the highest levels).....but it really depends on the horse. I would want a scan of her leg just to know what you are dealing with. She...

    Ideally, you use that with two reins. One gag rein and one on the snaffle rings. This way you have better steering WITH breaks when you need them. Otherwise, if you just use the gag rein....he...

    If Size (height) is super important...and you are an event rider.....then I would go with Salute the Truth. He ran around Advanced, was not considered a "pro" ride....and has consistently passed on...

    THAT was my point.....You have to ride through some pain but you also have to be smart. Some pain needs to be taken seriously. But if you are trying to be successful in elite sports...it is rare...

    Sea Accounts is Full TB and a good moving one. He is tall too with some tall ancestors.

    And most teens wouldn't admit they emulate anyone....but they do. Look at the following on EN and other media. BnR wouldn't have sponsors if people didn't emulate them.


    Do I personally...

    My big mare has some. It was a bit harder to get her in foal this year but fingers crossed she seems to be now. It definitely makes them tougher but it isn't an uncommon issue.

    For most of my HTs, I prefer it. I'm typically done in 2-3 hours and I'm home. I feel it is easier on my horses. I don't have to stable overnight or haul them back and forth two days in a row.

    I got a pair on sale ($100 off). I've only used them once so far but will use them this weekend after his gallop. A bit cumbersome to get on but not that bad. They did cool his legs well.

    Looks too small for you. I can tell in the picture that your stirrup length is perhaps a tad too long (not bad though), but where your knee is hitting and where your center of balance is over the...

    FWIW--My boy has even bigger withers (high and long)...and a VERY short back. He was extremely difficult to fit. I do have a custom saddle...more for me than him but ended up custom to get...

    I don't think the saddle is ugly. And it is an interesting concept. That said....I'm a rider who doubts the exchangeable flaps will work for me. Most jump saddles do not fit me well when jumping...

    Yes...I would be breeding for eventing. Mare's pedigree is not very commercial for racing anyway (she looks like an old style classic turf horse).
