    Actually those with a "string" of top horses are far and few between. Ingrid, Michael, and then ?? Most have one top horse, with one coming up the ranks. Then a bunch of youngsters. Sandra, Dirk,...

    Agree with vineyridge on her TB argument - the horse has not changed very much, the high English or AA% blood still rules this sport. The format was not changed to sell warmbloods, sorry to all the...

    An Ingrid-trained horse doesn't help if you can't keep up that level of expert training. Darren could. That is why Windfall was so consistent for his entire career under two rather different riding...

    I'll second Hirtentanz, and will add Songline, Halimey and pretty much anything Enrico Caruso of which there is a good load in North America. Very good moving offspring on these guys, solid minds,...

    I always liked him - he reminded me most of his sire, although his strong trait was certainly more in the dressage ring, not the multip-purpose format that Sixtus can produce. Lafayette was sold to...

    Duke of Hearts xx is a long shot away from being proven as a 3day sire, and had a book of over 100 mares last year, so in 10years, he better deliver ;-) Ituango xx is at the complete opposite end of...

    >>Hirtentanz himself apparently is not competing at 1.6m then, so I have to wonder if he is a top end jumper.<<

    Just a fyi because it came up:

    Hirtentanz's highest show record (FN records) is at S*, which is 1,35m to 1,45m as per FN rules. He has won at that level several times.
    And grayarabpony, he is...

    Prince Rouge xx was an excellent improvement sire especially in the Trakehner breed in the 1960s. Very clear and positive jumper producer, sire of several highly influential mares (e.g. the direct...
