    Default Warmblood-registry approved small sportpony stallions

    I'm looking at options for a smallish (15.1/ 15.2) warmblood mare for this coming breeding season. I am strictly breeding for sportponies now so I am looking for small, warmblood registry approved pony stallions, preferably 13 hands or LESS as I'd like to like to get a medium from the cross, if possible.

    I want either RPSI or Weser-Ems registry/approval so this probably means I'm looking at Welsh Section B stallions. So far have only found two, for sure ... Mardi Gras, who I've been aware of and liked for years and Smoke Tree Snapdragon.

    Any other suggestions? Any I'm missing?

    I'd be thrilled if you chose to use Mardi, Sharon!

    Mardi is one of my favorites. I bought a Mardi baby from Gretchen this year, and I LOVE him. What a personality, and so fancy

    What are some more specifics you want? Dressage? Hunter?

    You've got a couple of problems with what you are looking for. From what I remember, any of the reputable warmblood registries who are approving pony stallions normally don't allow the "smaller" ones into their breed books. I know for ISR/Oldenburg, 100% of the pony stallion pedigree must be sport pony approved...and that's not always possible for the smaller ponies to have a stellar show history behind their pedigree.

    Secondly, I don't think there is any way you will get a medium pony out of a 13 HH stallion and a 15.1 HH warmblood mare. You'd be shooting for a large at best. If you do want a medium, you're likely going to have to go much smaller...and then you get into a few lovely smaller pony stallions...but will unfortunately not be approved with any of the warmblood registries. *Telynau Falcon comes to mind. He's 11.2 HH and approved Weser-Ems. You'd likely get a medium out of that cross. Going 13 HH and above will likely get you a hony...unless the mare is a maiden, then you could take a bit of a risk.

    Definitely dressage. With Weltstern as my foundation stallion, everything I've bred for 20 years has been with dressage in mind, although many of them have done well as jumpers and eventers ... several of the sportponies have been successful hunters as well.

    These breedings (to the small RPSI/ Weser-Ems stallion) will be my last "breed to keep" breedings. My plan is to produce 2 or 3 fillies for myself that will be RPSI approved. I can then continue to breed to approved outside stallions even after I am no longer comfortable keeping/handling stallions myself. Slower reaction times and vision difficulties are an unfortunate reality as you age ... it is eventually going to catch up to me.

    Are you looking for a stallion that's proven? I would assume so, but proven in what?

    What does your mare bring to the table (meaning if she's unproven in pedigree or performance then I'm positive you want a heavy hitter on the other side)?

    It's going to be very hard with the size of your mare finding a dressage pony stallion or a eventer pony stallion that is proven in the height you need. You need to keep your mare height no larger than 15.1 (max) and then select a stallion smaller than 12.2 to avoid a large pony foal.

    True.

    *Telynau Falcon as mentioned and isn't there an Eyarth small B somewhere that is GRP approved? (I can't for life of me remember who it is)
