    These are all very nice stallions. If you are looking to add length of leg, I'd not say Rousseau consistently provides this. In his case, the Ferro often comes through; super engine and hind leg...

    I think this is true. Also factor in the huge marketing machine that Europe can offer the stallions , which is only possible because riding sport is so much more popular there (more popular = more...

    This! With all the expense (travel, potential vetting, etc )involved in buying any age horse, it only makes sense to plan ahead and make sure you have several farms and prospects to see. One of the...

    Scholtens is of the top young horse riders of the day. Not too many people can ride and present top stallions and youngsters as well as she does. Dynamic horse, for sure.

    "Add the link to her commentary updated today. Maren has a PhD in genetics (I think) and she doesn't hold back on the bloodlines and performance.

    Thanks, Viney. I'd hoped you would be able to check in here with your expertise. I'm thinking that maybe from a sales point of view, a WB stallion crossed with this may not produce a super marketable...

    JC name is Arch de Lee. I think she's wide open on registry options. Her main goal is a marketable foal. Friend's background is extensive as breeder of TBs for racing, so this would be new venture....
  9. Thoroughbred bloodline query for sport horse prospect

    Have a friend with very nice Thoroughbred broodmare, sire is Arch. Further in are Allen's Prospect and Magesterial. The mare has produced three excellent foals out of Tb stallions (type and movement)...

    Another thoughtful and thorough reply, Blume. Agree with all.

    You seemed to hear what you want to hear, Velvet. That's why I attempted to clarify a couple of times - in the interest of having a good conversation. My original post was asking if any Pros had...

    Interesting responses. I appreciate Beenthere's posting especially, thank you. What I tried to clarify earlier from my original post was that this transition is not about "trying to beat people...

    I appreciate your thoughts on this. I guess I should have been clearer that its not about making money for money's sake; that was never a goal. I've worked for large farms and for just one client...
  15. Any Pros made transition back to Amateur status? Reasons?

    I think I'm done working as a professional. By that, I mean making a living, having my job be a trainer ( in dressage) . It's a tough transition. I'm as obsessed with this sport as ever, my love and...

    I just wanted to add I'm sorry for your loss. Having gone through this before with my favorite mare, I can understand -like so many on this board- the feelings. My mare had two perfect foals,...

    Such an interesting thread. There is so much good feedback here, foremost in my mind being the need to, sooner rather than later, have a simple and straightforward talk with your trainer. It always...

    Agree with JackSprat's mom...I think SH's idea is to be able to use (this) exercise to create an honest response, not just 'hope' the horse is relaxed (in the walk or work desired). So using leg...

    Agree with Siegi, an experienced and successful breeder, on this. 4 weeks prior to foaling is getting close in new environment for foaling out as well as the long trailer ride prior. Not that it...
