    Here was a nice article done for EN on Rolex TBs last year. Shows some pretty common trends in breeding for good jumping and galloping horses. It at least has the pedigrees of several handy.

    That's what I said...I've seen him in the pedigrees of several top event horses thru his daughters. Just as most of his top race offspring have been thru daughters.

    There are several young sons...

    Depends on what they produce for the track. I do know that just as Secretariate was a good damsire for race horses....same for many sport horses. Typically though...the top race horse sires and...

    There are a lot of AP Indy grand kids in sport. I have a mare (Rockstina) by Rockslide. Lovely jump and mover. I didn't think it was too uncommon now to find offspring in sport with AP Indy up...

    Also...as I mentioned the eventers earlier....it still will not be easy there. I have a nice young TB MARE...never race or even race trained. She is jumping 3'6" now in competition and will...

    You can definitely ride in the warm up rings after competition. I typically waited until things were quiet but to me riding a non-competing horse is the same as those riding horses who are competing...

    yup....and they didn't get in foal and/or we didn't breed. No idea other than that. Hopefully you get a better more informed answer.

    You will have to look at dead green and NOT yet in the hands of a jumper person. Best bet it to shop event horses or breeders. Look for a 4 year old or 5 year old who is started but not yet done...

    That is like saying why are some shoes so expensive. You can absolutely get a decent saddle for less. But like shoes....I've worn many a sub $100 pair of heels. Perfectly nice shoes...and...

    Well I have one that I bought for $500.....but it is 20+ years old and needs reflocking and minor repairs. It was a high end saddle when new (what would be 3500-5500 today) but now very old. But...

    I've shared her around as well. Nice type, lovely pedigree.....she'd make nice jumping babies!!!! But also would probably be a lovely riding horse. One of my broodmares (Kourages Kelly) has 107...

    What I took his comments to mean is that it wasn't a very technical course....but had lots ofbig fences. Those test scope.

    But you go to a 4* like Burghley...and it will test both scope AND...

    He's top of their page on facebook but you need to look at the right page.... (JB Sporhorses in OK).

    Oh he certainly has the looks! You could also post him here https://www.retiredracehorseproject.org I believe even though he didn't race. He is still JC registered.

    He is very pretty. I think I would post on dreamhorse etc. But probably reach out to breeders. He might have appeal for those that breed QHs too (especially ones that show in the hunters etc). ...

    Yeah.. I basically posted the same thing but it disappeared in cyberspace. I love my Stackhouse monoflaps. I've had pretty much everything mentioned on this thread....and for me, the Stackhouse...

    You need to perhaps talk to a sport psychologist. VERY common problem.

    Daniel Stewart and Jane Savoie have a lot of good books/DVDs that may help too.

    The problem with green and fresh off the track is you really don't know whether they will suit you.

    OP-you are beginner. That requires certain type of forgiving horse to learn on. Most TBs are...

    I took it the same as you. He was an event horse and hunt horse...and like many had old injuries. Sounds like they had a lovely partnership. They were aiming for a good confident go at that...
