    I spoke to Sara (owner of Connaisseur) earlier in the year; he is only going to be offered by frozen for now due to his focus on competing. :( Too bad, I would definitely be breeding to him if he was...

    Yes, Bent Hickory, I agree that these situations are probably far more common than most people realize.

    I agree, although situations like these do not always have sinister explanations. In January, I was given an 8 year old (registered) Anglo-Trakehner mare by Asher. The mare had been bred by the...

    No, I had no idea what the cost would be. That is partly on me, of course, since I should have discussed it with the coach beforehand. Just goes to show how important it is to have these things...

    Have ridden with a BN coach who charges $1000 a day, divided among students, for away shows ($500/day for travel days with no coaching). I believe coach's day fee is $500/day (divided among students)...

    Is the behaviour more extreme when you ask for something like a particular canter lead, as you make reference to in your original post? That would be a big red flag for me in terms of being an...

    I think we are generally on the same page. I agree that chipping/hesitating is not okay all/most of the time. It is not acceptable if this is the horse's default reaction at take-off (which it seems...

    I disagree. To chip and hesitate is SOMETIMES incorrect. But sometimes it is safe; I would not feel comfortable riding a horse at the upper levels that didn't have the capacity (on rare occasions,...

    Elles, I'm sorry but I am confused by your posts. A lot of good points have been made here (on both sides) but you sound like a broken record. Are you not reading anyone else's posts?? I think we...

    I will tell you my observations/understandings, based on my limited time involved with and appreciating Holsteiners (owning two, attending the korung in 2012 and hanging around Holsteiner breeders)....

    I agree that the trend in course design has moved away from courses that favour the TB. TBs can jump seemingly insurmountable obstacles, like some of the fences at Aintree, but they jump from speed...

    How do the USEF rankings work? I ask because I know that often big breeders end up topping the lists. This is, of course, because they produce quality horses. However, it must also ultimately be...

    Sorry mckulley1, I missed your statement that you intend to have the mare approved with the foal at her side. Good idea (although this underscores the need, as I'm sure you know, to pick a stallion...

    I have to disagree that Andalusians will add bone. In fact, my observation is that crossbreds tend to have as much bone as that which they are crossed with (often lighter in bone than one would...

    Some good advice has been given here. If you were breeding for yourself, I would place less emphasis on registration. However, because you are intending to market the foal, I would advise against...

    Contender was actually a bay. ;) But other than that, I agree 100% with this post. Gray is one of my favourite colours; I have had many excellent horses that have been gray. I can understand having a...

    I campaigned a horse with stringhalt to the CIC** level and this was not an issue for me either. I informed the vet during the in-barn inspection but my horse has such a great trot (borderline too...

    Fair point, clint, I guess time will tell. He himself does not strike me as a particularly leggy type, plus I believe Diamond Hit is not known for adding length of leg. Diamond Stud's pedigree has a...

    I think Diamond Stud is stunning - I've seen him in person - but he is BIG. He has incredible power but I don't know that I would rely on him to modernize (if that is your desire). Based on the photo...

    Yes, I saw both Paragon and Ripline compete! Watching Paragon in the Grand Prix was actually what tipped me off to the presence of Danish Warmbloods: he was so eye-catching that I had to look him up,...

    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...

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