    Question Breeding help needed

    I have a mare who I think I may breed this yr due to her needing some time to mature mentally and physically . She is 4yrs old l and will continue to be trail ridden and worked lightly this year.

    Here is my dilema. She is by a Dutch pony stallion 14.2 (he showed in dressage to 4th level but has great jumping ability also) out of a 14.3 TK mare that competed thru F.E.I dressage very successfully.
    My mare has ISR pony (foal) papers and was premium and I will take her to her mare inspection this yr. I suppose the foal would go in the regular ISR book which I'm not thrilled about.

    She is 15.1, stunning chestnut sabino , lovely, correct movement which could put her in the dressage or hunter ring (very little knee) I would give an overal discription of "modern and leggy"
    I am going to take some new photos of her this afternoon hopefully as I only
    have foal photos of her right now.




    MY goal as I think about things is a small horse that can do hunters or dressage so I want a versatile stallion that has a competition record, foals on the ground, and I'm trying to stay under $1500 stud fee Less if I'm going to have to pay guest stallion fee.
    Things to improve are stronger loin connection, better length of hip and saddle position .

    My stallion list so far is :

    Rountinier, Donarweiss GGF,Rythym and Blues(would like more info) Papparazo,Pablito,

    Some that I like but on the fence on for various reasons inc diff reg

    Redwine, Black Tie, Glorioso Noir

    Any suggestions, comments on stallions (stallion owners please add your 2cents ) gratefully accepted .

    Maybe I'm old fashioned but you may want to go visit a stallion to be sure it has correct feet and proper proportions in person. Since you have a mixed ancestry of horse breeds and pony you may want to find a proven stallion who has a very consolidated pedigree. Ask the stallion owners for adult size and type of offspring in sport. Good luck!

    Well I really can't find anything to complain about with Redwine I recently met him in person, and oh wow, he's even more fabulous in the flesh Also got to meet a couple of his offspring, who were beautiful, and FULL of personality! Lovely conformation and movement, and seems to be stamping his foals strongly. He isn't too tall, 16-16.1 hands I would guess? He seemed to have a super temperment too. I'm breeding a mare to him this year, simply cannot wait to see the foal next year

    I don't know too much about any of the other stallions, so I can't speak for them.

    My stallion Pacific is 15.3hh. He is very strong in his topline overall, and would bring the loin, hip and saddle ppsition you are looking for. Pacific is competing in both dressage and showjumping successfully.

    Just FWIW, have you considered taking her to a GOV inspection and having her put into the Weser Ems book. She's a lovely girl!

    She looks really light boned. Is she?

    Very cute mare.

    I have two Routinier kids. One is out of a small mare but he is only coming two. He is already bigger than the mom.

    The older one is a 2004 model, and is in training. He was a late bloomer and not put under saddle until he was 4. He is just like his sire with his willingness and ability to do the work he is asked to do. Zip Code loves to jump and is quite catty. His trainer loves him. He is a joy to ride. (Do I have to pay her? Just kidding.)
