    I just find it fascinating that there are only 13 breeders listed on the site which is not at all indicative of the representation of this registry at Devon. I'm thinking, for example of the relative...

    Danish Warmbloods at Devon

    I was struck, this weekend at DAD, by how many horses competing in the FEI classes were listed as Danish Warmbloods. Of the 12 horses competing in the Grand Prix Freestyle last night, 4 of them are...

    The comment about stringhalt is surprising since, to my knowledge, no genetic component has been identified in stringhalt (and I have campaigned a horse with stringhalt for a number of years so I am...

    Capilano is jumping 1.20 m on the west coast.

    Cortez is jumping consistently at 1.30 m and has shown up to 1.45 m.

    Capadina is showing and placing consistently at 1.20-1.25 m.

    I have heard nothing but good things about the temperaments of Sir Wanabi's foals. I have two of them (a 3 year old and a 4 month old) and am very pleased with the quiet, easy-going disposition both...

    Dressage at Devon!

    I'm very excited that my mother and I will be attending DAD (as spectators) for the first time this year! Any COTHers attending/showing? Any tips from those who have attended before/attend regularly?...

    You might look into a Waterford Baucher. It combines the action of both types of bit. They are not very common over here; I had to order mine from the UK. I guess they are used a lot more over there....

    I assume you are citing Equine Canada rules. This is actually incorrect. The identification number is required in exercise and schooling areas only; therefore, in a situation like this in Canada...

    Equusaround, I sympathize with your frustration. However, this is a good example of how many stallion owners fail to appreciate what will attract mare owners (either because they are unaware or...

    I have a 2004 Andalusian/TB mare, by Botijo M out of a Restivo mare. She is gorgeous: she got the positive attributes of both breeds. She is refined like a TB without a lot of knee action; ride her...

    I know nothing about the competition at the Friesian shows, but I have been to the big regional and national Andalusian and Lusitano shows. It's not too hard to be National Champion when there are...

    Elles, I'm not sure what you're trying to prove: these pedigrees have TB in the second generation, right where many breeders would like to see it. Not only are these not full TBs, they're not even F1...

    I would get a good vet to confirm a diagnosis. Loose stifles and stringhalt are not the same thing; I don't know as much about the former, but the latter is neurological and only in extreme cases is...

    There was a daughter of his (Princess de Taute) eventing in Ontario/Quebec a few years ago with a young rider who appeared to have mostly produced her himself. The mare got up to Intermediate; not...

    It's interesting to hear the different responses/opinions offered. My policy has always been: if the horse has shoes and it's competing on grass, it has studs. Then again, I tend not to shoe my...

    This may seem like splitting hairs but I feel the need to point out that La Biosthetique Sam is actually registered Baden-Wurttemburg, not Hanoverian. He is an exceptional horse, so I want to be sure...

    Yes, fair enough, Bayhawk. My mare has a weak top line and definitely needs improvement there; I understand that Connor would not be the best choice as he likely would not add the improvement in the...

    Try contacting RyTimMick; he had a very nice Connor colt a year or two ago.

    I loved the look of the Connors I saw in Holstein. I would love to breed to him but I've been told he needs a mare with...

    You're right, this is off topic. My point was not, "look at me, I'm so impressive, I'm a doctoral student". I absolutely enter every argument with skepticism and a critical mind. That is...

    Yeah, I would still disagree. When I stood next to him last year I was very surprised at how modern and leggy he is; I was not expecting that. That being said, his bloodlines don't scream uber modern...

    I would definitely not consider either Freestyle or Sir Wanabi to be old style. When you stand next to Freestyle he looks like he is about 90% legs; he is definitely a modernizing stallion. Wanabi...

    I am surprised that some have found Cabardino to not refine. I was at W. Charlot last May and discussed him and what he has produced with Christine Walch: they purchased him as a stallion to...

    Where did you see this? I know he is leased out to a rider for the show season but I had not heard anything about him being for sale. I hope he is not, since I am breeding a mare to him this year!
