    No, I wouldn't either.

    I would just enjoy her and save your money to buy a nice young prospect when you are ready. You really can't predict what you will get with a TBXClydeXAndalusian, just too...

    Interesting to hear different perspectives, but I agree with stoicfish that there are many ways to end up with a four year old moving successfully into a show career.

    This is great advice. I would recommend talking to Barbara at Silver Creek about Vallado/Praise. The two colts I mentioned earlier are from his first (tiny) foal crop and will be 7 this year. I...

    Having often bred multiple mares to the same stallion, I have found the foals are far more likely to take after their dams.

    That said, one of my Praise (aka Vallado) colts just stepped into a...

    I loved Linaro. Last I checked, there was still frozen available. My filly is a lovely mover and has the temperament to have been brought along by her ammie owner.

    I was looking at him last year and at that time there was frozen available in the US. I couldn't find any US bred offspring though and that made me nervous. I would love to use him.

    The market for even winning experienced pony jumpers is tiny. Probably a good idea to go to some shows when you get to college and get a first-hand look at the competition. You need a good...

    Not sure what you mean... the Low Ch/Ad (1.0m) jumper divisions are very popular at the shows I've been to. :confused:

    I haven't read your previous posts or seen your video, so I won't comment on your chances of retraining this horse, but focus on the horse itself.

    I routinely breed my three year olds, but would never breed a two year old. I see a huge difference in both physical and mental maturity. I can't see any advantage in pushing the envelope.

    Their website is www.rhpsi.com

    The inspections don't usually start until mid summer, so I doubt the schedule has been set yet. Check their site in another month or two.

    That is what I was thinking too. As we found the thawed and extended frozen was still viable 24 hours later, it would be possible to produce a pregnancy if the mare ovulated within 24 hours of...

    If his papers were really tossed to hide his true age, I find it hard to believe they would only subtract one year. Do we even know if he competed in a division he was not eligible for?

    Jumping is heritable, so by using top bloodlines you are increasing your odds of getting a jumper. There are definitely no guarantees of success and you are far more likely to get a 1.1m horse than...
