    Default Stallion for this young mare? Double up Rubinstein?

    Dark brown, rising 4yo. 16.2hh SOLID mare by Rosario out of a refined Holsteiner TB mare (with no bad characteristics I think except high energy levels). We want to get one foal from her before a dressage career.

    Temperament is good. Lots of bone although slightly pigeoned toed. I love the fact that all her life she has appeared to stand and move uphill. Always engaged from behind.

    Not really interested in an "professional ride" - training is hard enough without the horse being overly sensitive.

    I have no colour preference though I would avoid a chestnut if there are two stallions of equal quality.

    Mostly I am interested in a stallion that will compliment her. The foal would be for dressage.

    I feel that maybe she could have a bit more suspension.

    The mare is by Rosario - would you breed her to a horse with Rubinstein up close in the pedigree - I love Hampton but have heard the semen isn't so great.

    Also - semen must be frozen from Europe for export. Most US stallions are unavailable for us - though at one time Budweizer and Feiner Stern exported chilled semen successfully to Australia.

    The Dressage Royal (Donnerhall--Rubinstein) son Doringcourt is down your way.

    Several Dressage Royal sons did very well for Switzerland:

    I will go back in our files to get the contact information for Doringcourt.

    Doringcourt is an interesting stallion - I have always admired the stallion Gymnastic Star who is by Gl├╝ckspilz and I think underused in Australia. I will try and find out some more about this horse.

    I like Damsey too and it is interesting that like Doringcourt he carries some "old" Hannovarian blood. I wouldn't sneer at a horse that brings some "power" to the game. Refinning influences we seem to have in plenty here.

    Thankyou.

    We already have Benidetto semen in Aus if interested. Bertrams have it, reasonably priced.

    I think the mare has plenty of suspension and power.

    Beneditto would be high on my list. I really like him. (Linda, do you have more photos of foals??

    Default A modern type

    I think I will prefere a stallion with a lot of look and gaits.

    Check out for F├╝rstenball by www.schockemoehle.com. Frozen semen will be provided soon.

    Probably a bit far to ship chilled semen from Scotland to Australia.

    They once shipped fresh from Budweiser and Feiner Stern to Australia.
