    This guy is 19th in the world. If you take away the Freestyle, and use GP as that is what is comparable to 20 years ago, you see similar scores at the top. 80 is still very uncommon. ...

    Wasn't it Carl Hester that came out recently with some stats and a statement that the "big trot" and long legs selection was moving in the wrong direction.
    I wish I had access to the worlds best...

    Save yourself the time and money and skip ahead to the final product. Her breeding will be on the pedigree for 5 gens. You will spend way more "getting" there this way as opposed to buying a really...

    Genetically, this makes no sense at all.
    So I then can buy an average mare and use all the best stallions because the mare is just icing? Of course not.

    Some science. Genes and genetics do not...

    This is a very trusting viewpoint. You are trusting that the selection is for the betterment and no other factors are at hand.
    Change is going to be continuous, but there have been tons of examples...

    A bit of honestly.
    The Ferro tends to come through in these horses so you need to keep that in mind. And she is an Arab cross. While the original breeder created some really excellent amateur horses...

    Like a foal class, they can only judge what is in front of them. The problem is, in my opinion, that traditionally a Wb horse really doesn't get it's shit together till it is 5 or so. So the horse...

    Two interesting things about these pedigrees.
    The mare Nevada, (Flawless) is the dam of Rosentau also. Flawless's dam is a half sibling to Rosentau.
    And Fashion Maker has a Tb dam line.

    The best type of horse people own him and he has been fun to watch. He has a few offspring on the ground already if you search.
    The offspring I have seen have been nice but as with all jumper babies...

    It is a great loss and I am sure very sad for the people that were around him everyday and jumper breeders everywhere.

    The rest of this thread is just silly.

    And he is 16.7hh.....So he carries some height.:winkgrin:

    Took a non horsey friend to an arena where they happened to have a lady riding 4th level dressage and another training western pleasure at the same time. Friend asked me if the WP horse had had a...

    The full quote.
    I think you will agree that as breeding stock you want the most predictability possible. Height isn't the biggest factor but other qualities will be. And while you can get nice...

    I don't think they would make good breeding stock most of the time because of all the variation in their pedigree.
    Going with the good breeding practice that only the best mares are bred, then most...

    There have been more then 6 mares in several different studies. One that was ET's of larger horses into ponies.
    Even all this does not prove anything statistically but stats are for characterizing...

    Because that is the animal that you do have to watch the sire as it corresponds to birth size...unlike a horse.
    I have never heard a breeder that had foaling issues do to the size of the stallion....

    Based on what?

    I come from an agricultural background and you would never do this with a cow, but horses are completely different.

    I did some research when I decided to breed an older maiden mare. She was 16.3h but all the research literature says that the foal will only grow to the size of the uterus it is in. The reason why...

    ^^^^ lol

    I was speaking from the firstperson of many buyers I have met and what I have observed.

    However, I do have a filly, with an average trot, that will be more horse than I need. I like...

    I can not figure out what you are asking.
    You want to linebreed to Ramiro? Uphill has no Ramiro. And he does throw the qualities you suggested.
    I would try a stallion like Goodtimes with your...

    So as a buyer.
    I will never have the time to reach above PSG. But I have a little filly with a great trot because it looks great without me doing a lot of work.
    All the stallion shows, the horses...
