    Default Places to find quality QH hunter prospects

    Can anyone point me in the direction of farms who have young QH's where you have found stuff for the hunter ring. We used to have a great QH farm nearby that we bought lots of babies from and they are no longer there and I would really love to find another place. The babies we got from there were typically western broke but came along really quickly had the BEST brains and a lot of them ended up being really cute childrens hunter types. Suggestions?

    Kory Merrill in Camden, SC has AMAZING prospects. Great minds, great movers, and great jumpers. Ive ridden and shown a couple. They have two awesome stallions that produce great horses.

    The World Championship Show sale is a great place to buy prospects for the hunter ring alot of yearling and two year olds, that are going to be huge. The good part is the hunter people look for something a little different then the QH huntseat people so alot of really nice ones can be purchased really inexspensively. You can also go to Pleasurehorse.com and check out all there advertiser's and stllion links for all of the current breeders.
    Absolutely love the Last Detail's awsome trotters and usually have beautifull heads, mine placed well at Devon.

    The PS Sign the Card horses are NICE. I have ridden a few. Very classy! April is very nice. Check out her site at http://www.prairiestarhorses.com/

    Kory Merrill does have nice horses also. Definately somone to check out on the east coast.

    Also, Jerry Erickson has a horse named Sonnys Hot Jazz (http://www.sonnyshotjazz.com/) Who produces really nice fence horses.

    You can also check with Jason Martin (http://www.highpointperformance.com/) or Chuck Briggs in Azle, TX.

    I used to work at Huges Quarter Horses in Burleson, TX and we sold a lot of our youngsters to the hunter ring. www.Hughesquarterhorses.com (the site is not updated) You may want to contact Paris too see what she has now.

    Good luck. Let me know if you need anymore names.

    There was an outstanding Sonny's Hot Jazz baby that won one of the O/F classes at the IHF West Coast final in 99, I think. I called Jerry at the time to try to buy a prospect and they were so popular they didn't have any left!

    Where're you located? Mine came from Montana - stereotypical cow-horse and quarter horse country. Daley-Newton Quarter Horses. They breed for a very athletic type horse, and have a fairly well-established, respected program. A lot of their horses end up doing hunt-seat - either on the AQHA circuit or - atleast mine'll hopefully do well - on the open circuit.

    Here's a little article from HuntSeatHorses.com - a site that focuses on AQHA hunters.

    Check Stauffer Farms. That was the home of Scotch Bar Time. Scotch has passed, but they breed his daughters to stallions in different disciplines (reining, WP, huntseat, etc) and always have some for sale. Can't find a better mind, but sometimes they're too smart for their own good.

    I second anything Jerry is involved with. Hes a tremendous rider, stallion manager and judge.

    Another great AQHA person is Nancy Sue Ryan http://www.showstopfarm.com/

    Lines that you could search for on sale sites:
    Invitation Only http://invitationonlyllc.com
    Sonnys Hot Jazz
    Artful Move http://www.artfulmove.com
    Sky Blue Walker http://www.skybluewalker.com (some of these can be a little less QH minded so try before you buy...but they are beautiful and great athletes)

    too many others to list...im sure ill kick myself for forgetting an important one after i submit

    Ditto trying the World Show or AQHYA World Show, or even Congress. Try Jason Martin/Charlie Cole at Highpoint Performance Horses www.highpointperformance.com, they have a few prospects for sale and could probably point you in the right direction.

    Actually Jerry hasn't owned Sonnys Hot Jazz for over a year now. He's standing in Kentucky now. Great horse! Jerry is showing one of SHJ sons right now, Jazz CD, and has put an AQHA Championship on him. Looks like he's following in his father's footprints.

    Aww, I used to ride a horse named Sonny Go Ray who I think might have been by the same sire as Sonny's Hot Jazz. I remember my instructor back then talking about him. The stud at that barn I rode at as a kid was Hot Jazz's full brother--A Connecting Flight. He was gorgeous, and a very sweet tempered guy.

    (Any AQHA people able to look up Sonny Go Ray for me? I'm just curious as to where he ended up and what his relation was to Hot Jazz now...)

    Windfall Farm in Tallahassee stands a lovely 16.3 bay Appendix stallion. They have been a top QH racing breeding facility, but the owner is now getting into hunters too.
    I have a beautiful one of hers (16.3 bay with chrome......and now doing hunters) on my website as a favor to her..........check him out.....
    My Flashpoint. I can put you in touch with her........
