    At the risk of being struck down by lightning, LOL, Breeding directors are not God but I do believe they are looking for the LONG TERM needs for their breeds. But <gasp> they are human and could be...

    Thank you Maren! I was using him as an example and he is a horse I have long admired. Experience has taught me that you are far better breeding horses from families that have done what you wish to do...

    I have worked with and ridden many many TBs both as race horses and as Sport Horses and still work with students that ride them today. We also bring along our own young horses from our own program....

    I don't want to be disrespectful to any breed as there are good and bad in all of them. But I am one US breeder who did try to make Sport Horses using TBs, 30 years ago. My thing was Eventing and I...

    Just for the sake of a "friendly" argument, why would a horse with many, many generations of horses bred to be riding (sport) horses, be more of a breeding gamble than an xx horse with generations of...

    The show results on the ATA site are from 2010. He has done a lot since then. I've read somewhere (but not taking the time to look it up) that he has done the 1.6 successfully.

    JMO, of course, but...

    An honest question here: If some people think more "blood" is needed wouldn't a Trakehner stallion like HIRTENTANZ be a better choice?

    This. We have always bred for 3 correct gaits, good jump, good temperament, soundness and "pretty". Not surprising several of our youngsters have done well as hunters.

    I don't think Esbilac will "hurt" them and not feeding them certainly will. Make sure to keep them on their chests to feed them, never upside down and if using a syringe feed very slowly. Those...

    Between 1921 and 1936, the hardest steeplechase in the world, the Pardubice steeplechase, was won 9 times by East Prussian horses. In other words, Trakehners.

    I think the Eventing market will always be such a small part of the overall Sport Horse industry that breeders specializing in "just" Event horse will always be few. The lower levels don't require a...

    Another thing that can cause the underneck to over develop is the horse that spends a lot of time looking over a fence. Especially if they fence walk/trot with their head turned and looking over a...

    In my experience foals need to exercise just as much as they want to. They will also lay down and sleep as much as they need to. Many foals look a bit wonky for the first few days, after all they are...

    There aren't many horses with a full TB sire or dam and a 1/2 TB sire or dam, in other words 75% TB that are successful GP jumpers or GP Dressage horses. There aren't even all that many Eventers,...

    I think GAP is confusing 72% with almost 3/4. A horse that is "almost" 3/4 TB is a very different animal than a modern WB that is 72% blood. Since the closest TB in the pedigree is the dam sire, it...

    I think you can buy a lot of horse for 50K, this mare's price seems pretty high to me. For instance, we have a very similar horse for sale. Gelding. Black. Sired by a GP Trakehner, out of a decent...

    I will respectfully disagree with some of the folks here about "dirty" horses making you a better rider. They don't. They make you a defensive rider who is always prepared for the worst. We have a...

    Seems to be getting more like the QH industry. Poor baby stallion.

    No I mean MMB. We hosted keurings for 13 years and I never saw a TB mare put lower than MMB. Their foals got the full brand. I also saw a colt sired by a TB out of a Zweibrucken mare get full brand...

    RPSI tours all over the US and Canada and I have never seen them turn down a TB.

    Mr. NoDQhere just got this vest on a "Tack of the Day" special for under $600. He hasn't ridden in it yet but thinks he will like it.

    $20,000 for a hard keeper, with shivers, estimated to be in his mid-teens? Sorry but that sounds like a heart and wallet breaker to me. $20,000 buys a pretty nice, sound horse in today's market.

    Hopefully your little pooch will recover quickly! Just reading your post raised my blood pressure. So scarey, but it sure could have been worse. I too, leave gates open when I am putting out round...
