    I tried to ship out of London, but the options I got were racehorse flights that were not from London but much further out. The flights were actually more expensive than shipping and flying out of...

    Just my few thoughts:

    I agree with the posters above that bringing "brilliance" or "energy" back into the judging would be beneficial, but how to do that is the problem? Posters above suggested...

    Interesting you have observed that of the Balou offspring. I have a mare with Balou as dam sire and she is quite heavy and pony like and not from her very refined sire (Phin Phin x Lux). I have also...

    I would take a look at Canturano and Christian. Both should add length of leg. Canturano has a number of offspring moving up to the top levels of sport an Christian has had impressive first crops.

    I would not in the least consider Balou a refining stallion. They have substantial bone and body and shorter legs. Neither Emerald or Balou will add leg or refine.

    The first step would be to contact GOV office to see if stallion DNA is on file. The stallion looks to have been approved GOV. However, if the TB dams were never presented/approved then the mares...

    I have a hard time with many of the responses on this thread, and this is coming from someone who DOES trailer, groom, and prepare all of my own horses and meet trainers at the ring whenever work...

    Talk to vet of course, but I have seen super results with Surpass and BOT wraps. I had one with a soft tissue tear and combination of Shockwave (4 sessions) with BOT/surpass for 6 months and zero...

    Thank you hunt cup! I also know quite a few Lordanos hunters on the west coast that are super types. Tamara's 7 year old daughter is looking very promising jumping around the young horse classes in...

    On a side note and for the interest of the OP. Tamara (aka Come Monday) will have a second offspring by Lordanos in 2016 (via ET). Aiming for the hunter/derby ring, but owners did not want to take...

    It is a complicated question with many, many factors. Some of my observations.

    Costs are NOT lower for land or for hay/feed (at least in Ca or near larger cities).

    Vet costs are significantly...

    Surgery is also a very good option. When done on early on foals he prognosis is excellent and there are no limitations on a sport career (cut check ligaments are also a non-factor on vetting later on...

    If you register by the 30th USEF is $35 for lifetime. Also, you can check the USHJA box for $30. The USHJA goes up to $75 after the 30th foal all horses.

    This thread has actually turned into an educational (and much needed) honest discussion about the American hunter market. I will weigh in on the side of the breeder and go out on a limb with the...

    8k for import? Not sure where you are getting your numbers? It is much cheaper to buy in UK or Ireland, but import costs go up. I just priced out import two weeks ago from the UK to LAX- 21k for...

    I would not leave Valentino (sire of Viscount) off my list. He moved up into the top 25 rankings for WBFSH event sires, one of the youngest to have done so. He crosses extraordinarily well with TB...

    As a breeder, I never mind hearing offers. I may even have another youngster that will suit you better within your price range. However, it can be irritating when a buyer requests numerous videos,...

    The usef database is tricky. The breeding can be recorded and still not show up on sires list. To make the most out of the database you actually need to go to horse recordings and then fill in sire ...

    Ariadus is a very underutilized stallion in my opinion. He throws leggy, sensible, and good blood. I know three and have ridden two Ariadus offspring and i was equally impressed with all three and...

    I breed both hunters and jumpers and I dislike any separation between the two for stallions and young stock. Many people think hunters and automatically think about the majority of hunters in the...

    If you want dead straight legs guaranteed then I would suggest following your vets advice and stripping. There is no downside to the procedure, other than money and the pain of aftercare and the...
