    is there something in particular that you're looking for? and what size? It might be helpful to describe your mare and what you're looking to improve upon.

    Usually when breeding you have a mare picked already and then you choose a stallion who will compliment her and improve on the things that need improving. There are HUNDREDS of pony hunter stallions out there. If you would like to know what ones are the leading hunter sires check USEF. If you are wanting to breed in the future I suggest starting to 'pony stalk' and get a good feel of the bloodlines that are in demand in the hunter ring and what produces top quality. Google will be your friend.

    Well, you should probably post this on the breeding forum to get more responses, but I will invite you to check out my stallions in the meantime. As you are in Ohio, you are welcome to come by and visit them in person if you would like. For the 2011 season we will be standing four Sec. B Welsh stallions, all with outstanding hunter movement and 100% imported bloodlines from proven hunter pony producing pedigrees. They are of various sizes and colors and all are handled daily and have quiet temperaments. There are many photos and videos of each stallion on my website. Good luck in your stallion search.

    JMHO, I don't think any good breeder should come on this thread and say what stallion they recommend knowing absolutely nothing about the mare.

    You should move this thread to the sport horse breeding section.

    Without information it would be nearly impossible to voice an opinion!!

    Limerick, she said she had no mare picked out yet. I wasnt recommending my stallions for any mare...just inviting her to check them out as we are in the same state. Thought that was fairly easy to understand. And I agree, there is NO stallion that is perfect for every mare... no matter what the bloodlines are!

    I think Quicksilver was just extending an invitation to view her farm and ponies to see what they have to offer, since she is also in Ohio. She has quite a variety of nice stallions there so there would be plenty to look at. It is always good to see them in person--you get a better idea of what they are all about and then in reverse, if she has a few mares to choose from, maybe can choose her mare to compliment a stallion she really likes. I have personally been to Sugarbrook in FL and can vouch that those two stallions are very nice too. I have a lovely son of Sugarbrook Blue Pacific that I am thrilled with. I also bred two mares to *Telynau Royal Charter this year, I think he is fantastic too (www.farmorefarms.com). USEF will give you a great starting point of who to google. Do find the top breeders in the listings and pick their brains if you can (Sugarbrook being one of them)!! They obviously know what it takes to be at the top of their game. I agree that you will get more breeders' attention in the breeding forums. Good luck!

    I have a 3yr old Foxtrot gelding that I bought unbroke 3 weeks ago, he is now broke to WTC and jumping small crossrails. He is the easiest going pony I have ever been around. No buck, spook ect. He is out of a Connemara mare that showed. Everyone says the Foxtrots have great brains, looks and movement and I really believe it after seeing lots of his sons.

    Agree that you should also post at sporthorse breeding.

    I would recommend that you find the BEST mare that you can find.

    Beauty, brains, movement, and jump. Then find a pony stallion that complements the mare. Best to breed Like to Like. The stallion is only responsible for part of the mix of genes.

    Megan, now I see why you asked!

    Let me see if I can help and fill in some blanks.

    All the potential mares are between 15.1h-16.0h
    All have great temperaments, so that doesn't have to be "improved upon"
    Great semen quality is a deciding factor as one of the mares is not maiden, but 17 years old.
    Movement for producing hunters ranges from good with suspension but a bit too much knee action to very flat kneed and sweeping.

    Deciding Factors: height consideration, substance, perhaps color as 2 of them are Chestnuts and I know that some people stay away from Chestnuts.

    Here are some of The potential mares.

    Take a look at some of Dianne Randolphs over @ hidden springs in s.c.
    She has 5 or 6. all fancy movers w/ great brains/ temperment and lovely conformation.

    She is currently standing tantallon outfoxed - one of the only stallion sons of otterridge foxtrot - that boy moves to die for and is just a stunning example of what a hunter pony stallion shoulde be (IMO).

    I think shes going to open Hidden Springs Valentino to stud next year in late spring.. he is the spitting image of his grandfather Islander and has all that blue rain movement. Hes liver w/ chrome
    Either of those guys will x to the mini tb mares for large ponies very nicely.

    Cottrell Andromeda, Hidden Springs Lotus (Downland Condor)
    and Lee Hill Bold Rumor are all good looking fancy moving typey boys in teh 13h range..

    IDK Todd ( the foxtrot son) is my favorite, I have my woodlands mare currently x'd to him and can't wait for the foal in 11..

    You can see tons of pix on her facebook page, or her website.
    www.hiddenspringsfarminc.com


    Lots to choose from and shes easy to work with. She also does alot of the breaking and training for Farnely up in Va.
    Good luck!
    =)

    I love my "grandson" (Tantallon Outfoxed) as well and thank you for pointing him out! He is owned by Margaret Bzdak and is standing at Dianne's for next season. He is stunning and a lovely mover (Otteridge Foxtrot really stamped his get). He is out of a very nice welsh mare, Tantallon Clear As Crystal by Lemontree Sea Captain. You can see some pictures here as well as on my facebook page (and Dianne's).

    The Foxtrot offspring all look like fabulous movers and are certainly beautiful. The ones we have seen over fences jump the best. Great blood runs true! He certainly left a great legacy in a very short time. It is hard to imagine what a huge impact he would have had if he had lived a long life.
