    Of the stallions mentioned, I think Goodtimes has the best chance of producing all you want. He is beyond proven as a sire, consistantly produces/improves the hind end, is proven for producing both...

    The dog does not have to be in the yard to defend your HOUSE. Dogs can hear/smell so much better than we can, so chances are pretty high he will know if someone jumps your fence.

    I don't think it is ALL about the rider, but I do think the riding & training carries more weight overall in building a successful dressage horse.

    Good to hear from a show jumping breeder.

    Young stallions are only going to put a breeder ahead IF they produce. Often they don't. And that's the problem. You can't tell for years if you bet...

    It's true that horses have been bred to race & jump competitively for centuries, whereas competitive dressage is, at most maybe 75 yrs old?

    And the sport...

    This is actually what a number of upper level riders say. Again, we are not talking about extremes here.

    The info from the Hester quote was (per the video I watched) obtained during a conversation with a KWPN registry official. It wasn't a "study" per se.

    Actually, I think Life DOES work that way sometimes.

    There is a thread on the Racing Forum that made me think. I realize racing is not dressage, but breeding is breeding. And the interesting...

    See, I disagree. I think you reach an end point in breeding where you produce "perfection"...you produce what you have always envisioned. You are there.

    Simple physics. At the upper levels a dressage horse needs to use it's hind end to engage (to "collect"). This requires putting alot of weight on the hocks and hind legs overall. If you have finer...
