    Artful Move
    Iron Age
    A lot of Zips Chocolate Chip babies go on to be hunters.

    That's all off the top of my head at the moment

    I am looking for those that competed USEF. I am not sure if the already mentioned horses did. If they did,then I apologize, as I am not a h/j person.

    I'm not entirely sure if the ones I mentioned competed USEF. Perhaps someone else can answer that, along with the following ones I've found:
    Luke At Me
    Coats N Tails
    Skys Blue Boy
    Natural Iron

    Hope this is somewhat helpful

    Wrapped in Red certainly competed in USEF shows, I am not familiar with the others.

    Of all the horses mentioned only Wrapped in Red showed at regular AHSA/USEF shows. The rest are famous on the AQHA circuit.

    ALtho not a hunter but a jumper, Threes and Sevens was a pretty famous QH that made it to the top!

    Ditto for Rub the Lamp, IIRC. He was champion at Harrisburg in his day.

    Movin Artfully and Shes Got The Blue, both are multiple World Champions and also show successfully at the big A shows out here.

    There are quite a few QH's that show successfully at AQHA and USEF, in some areas it can be hard to find AQHA shows with over fences classes, so lots show USEF. Lainie DeBoer is a well known AQHA trainer who shows her horses on the USEF circuit, and does very well!

    I had a lovely horse named Rugged Reindeer by a son of Rugged Lark. He was champion numerous times in the 3' adults starting as a 4 year old in Palm Beach, and anywhere else he went ( early 90's). I sold him to a very nice family in New York where the mom, the son and the daughter were all champion many times ( over many years) in their respective divisions at the Hampton Classic. I doubt that he is still alive, but had a long happy life. I believe he would be as successful today as he was then. A very well known judge/ trainer came over to me after he won a few classes at Palm Beach and drawled " I love that horse. When he goes around, the jumps aren't in the way, they are 'on the way' ". Still one of my favorite compliments ever about one of my horses.
    An interesting aside; I bought him from the vet in Miami who became famous for riding farm to farm in Homestead, FL after the big hurricane ('93?) on her horse ( Reindeer's relative) with medical supplies in her saddle bag as the roads were impassable.

    I actually judged Wrapped in Red w/ Mary Lisa Nicholson at Congress one year in the big hunter classic. That was a very nice horse.

    I actually would have thought you might remember him, MHM. Don't you spend part of the year in LI?

    The stallion Regal Lark (son of Rugged Lark) was reserve Super Horse at the AQHA World show, won or placed in all the hunter and hack classes there, then went directly to the AA Circuit shows and was champion in the 1st and 2nd year Greens all with Shane George. He pretty much showed in the same frame for both. Shane George trained many others to win in both arenas before he quit showing himself. Too many to remember.
    Chiparrific, owned and riden by Kimberly Wang Dey was one.

    David Connors of New Jersey shows all of his clients' horses on both circuits.
    Ditto Lainie DeBoer.

    Cactus Jack, a registered QH from Colorado ( Randy Henry, Winsome Farm, trainer), was Ammy Owner champion at Washington Intl, but never showed AQHA that I know of.

    I don't believe any of these did the fences at all, although Skys Blue Boy has become a leading sire of fence horses, as is Artful Move, who did do the fences.

    'One For The Record' was the most amazing mare.. I watched her come around the corner, look at the line, adjust her stride, and go, while her rider just sat chilly. Made me go and breed two by her sire, Swift Solo.

    Thing is, many horses are not shown under the registered name so it's hard to pinpoint. I have known of hunters who have been QH or appendixes and done well, but not sure what their registered names are.
