    Default Jumper stallion/strong hind w/great dressage movement?

    Is there a jumper stallion out there that screams dressage movement? One that you secretly wish you could turn into a dressage horse.

    If so, who is it?

    I would say Pablo...9's for movement. I think he was a jumper and then a dressage horse. I might be wrong, but he produces both.
    I say a baby two years ago that was out of holsteiner mare by Pablo conformation of a jumper but 8.5 movement. He was top baby at the approvals.
    I think Pablo consistently improves the toplines.

    Carpaccio. I have seen many from and out of Carpaccio Mothers. They move, and they move well. They just happen to have jumper breeding in them. He needs a particular type of mare, but he was the first one that came to mind.

    Cascari was a great example.

    Le Primeur hands down. Super mover...he was #2 behind Don Frederico in his SPT in Hanover and I believe he scored a ten for his canter. I am going to use him this year on one of my mares, the goal being to produce and FEI level dressage prospect.

    Hi Tim, I'm curious what type of mare you think suits Carpaccio, and what are his strengths/weaknesses?

    Carpaccio needs big leggy mares. He can breed small. I even saw a half sister by Capitol, still very small. The Carpaccio's I saw had great backs and hips with very nice shoulder freedom. Faces could be prettier, and some even got the "White Eye" thing. Throws a lot of chrome. I wish I new about tempermant but I do not know about this, maybe someone else could chime in. Good luck

    Wow, he's my type of horse. I couldn't seem to find any pictures/videos of him jumping though.

    Another "yes" for Pablo. There's a Pablo gelding at my barn who was doing Fourth Level last time he was in the show ring. Super mover, even better temperament.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Contendro. And Balou du Rouet has been used on dressage mares pretty successfully, I think. I'm also curious about Stalypso...he looks like he could be interesting crossed with a dressage mare, great movement for a jumper.

    We saw Stalypso during his 30 day test in Germany - he was very impressive, both as a type and as a mover and has already produced a number of approved sons - but sofar I believe more jumper orientated.

    Balou du rouet is it for me! I love him and I have been wanting to breed one of my dressage bred mares
    to him.

    Interestingly, Balou is from the same motherline as Daddy Cool.

    Not to hijack, but we're looking for the same thing (basically) to breed to my daughter's Intermediate event mare - strong dressage movement without breeding out the jumper. Everyone has mentioned movement - what about a MIND that can handle dressage? Mare is, uh, unenthused about dressage...
