Please read the article. The issue of falls is mentioned twice in the article, and my language carefully avoids making a definitive causal claim. The fundamental point of the article is the sharp...
The long format was changed by eliminating the steeplechase and roads and tracks to prevent eventing (and eventually, perhaps, dressage and showjumping) from being dropped from the 2004 Olympics.
Here is an article I wrote that will be published in the next issue of Horse International. It discusses thoroughbred stallions in the breeding of sport horses.
Thanks to members of this forum who...
I am writing the article now. Thanks to everyone who provided suggestions.

Omare: racing is a sport but I am focused here exclusively on the sport of eventing.
Linny: I am highlighting stallions available...
I am most interested in:
(1) TB stallions in sport
(2) TB stallions not in sport but have started to produce some promising youngsters in sport.
I have been commissioned to write an article and I need suggestions from eventing breeders and riders:
Please tell me the names and details of what you consider to be the most promising...
Sabine, I think you under-estimate Heraldik's influence. Mr. Butts bred a lot of Heraldik's super-star progeny but the stallion sired many other very good eventers not bred by this exceptional...
Precisely. He sired a lot of good eventers in Ireland before being sold to Germany.
weixiao has offered the best advice I have seen in a long time.
I think you can safely ignore the statement.
