    Default Dressage Stallions that always throw great temperments

    What are some dressage stallions that always throw great temperaments? I've heard that Werbellin and Contucci usually do, which others?

    Beste Gold, for either Dressage OR the Hunters.Stamps INCREDIBLE temperaments. They LOVE to work and please,are very forgiving and light to ride without being overly sensitive.

    Unfortunately there are not too many to pipe in and add to the claim, since his oldest are just under saddle and their trainers don't post....

    Don Principe!! That Donnerhall and Prince Thatchxx blood comes through time after time. When we bought "Prince" temperment was #1 for us. After all- I am getting up there in age and had a hip replacement last year with another this year. Both the stallion and his offspring had to be good minded and tractable.

    Silvio (middleburg) never competed under saddle in Dressage due to injury, but was champion stallion in hand at DAD. His babies are becoming famous for their gentle dispositions, and he himself is basicly a lapdog to handle. He is from the same sire line as Sandro Hit.

    Thanks for the tip. I didn't know the secret was to keep buying chesnuts with white so hubby wouldn't notice. I keep breeding chesnuts with white, and yes, good old Bolero! So nobody notices. Heck, most people can't even tell my horses apart! They're all chesnut with white socks and blazes. You have to count the socks and look between the legs for a clue!

    Sorry OP for getting off topic. I'll behave myself now.

    Rotspon if you want to go frozen. His horses are just the best in the brains department. Real workers & really loving horses.

    Nevada's offspring have incredible temperaments. He was Champion stallion In Hand at VADA/Morven & Res Ch Stallion at Dressage at Lexington. His offspring are just beginning to be shown, but two of his youngsters qualified for the Championships with their very first dressage test, scoring over 67%. One (out of a QH mare) was ridden by a Young rider (I believe she was 18) at barely 4 years of age. The other (Warmblood mare) is turning 4 this month and has just been sold to a Junior rider. Another Junior rider is competing her Nevada 4 year old (TB mare) in Eventing, and won the Dressage portion of her first Event this spring. Their trainers have a lot of confidence in Nevada offspring temperaments and rideability.

    After dealing with more than a few Pointmakers, I would defiantly not suggest him for a stallion that always throws good temperaments. He himself has a great temperament, his offspring verge on the explosive side. My trainer has one, and she even said that her mare is not a amateur horse at all, neither are any of the PMs shes met. All the ones I have meet are on the explosive side, hot and reactive.

    Two fillies I have had with outstanding tempermants would be by Donnerschlag and this years Fabuleux. I had a Rascalino that was pretty level headed too.

    Stepping in with my TKs... Hailo, (or anything with Anduc in them), Martini, Oskar, Butow (who just passed over the Bridge)... I'll think of more.

    Freestyle definitely passes on a great temperament. I have met several of his offspring and have two of my own, and they are all incredibly easy to work with.

    Wildcard is in NC. His offspring are going under saddle and starting to show. I had a student buy an unbroken 4 year old, after two months with a trainer she is trail riding by herself and took her to hang out at a show and was able to hack her. Wildcard got a 9 on his trot, very fancy guy!

    I don't think you can ever claim "ALWAYS" throws good temperments. But some lines tend to throw better temperments then others. Someone mentioned Pointmaker, I know three of these horses and all are very difficult. I don't think he's known for throwing a good temperment, although he is a nice boy. I know a few Donnerhalls, and all are pretty complicated, but lovely movers.

    Florestan and Fienerstern (F lines) tend to be nice horses. Some of the W lines are pretty steady - Wonderful is nice, but semen is "iffy". Many of the Ideal babies are quite easy to work with. I've known a few Idocus offspring that were nice, easy horses (OK, I've jumped breeds now). Sempatico seems to be throwing good minds, although not too many going under saddle yet, as he is young.

    Bordeaux was throwing good temperment - is he still around? Haven't heard anything about him lately.

    On the mare line, many of the foals OUT of Diamont mares tend to be much nicer than their mothers

    My stallion is throwing nice temperments and good hind ends Sorry, had to throw that in
