    Default The Rouson Horses - The Silver Baron, The Silver Card etc.

    What can anyone tell me about these guys and where they ended up? Or about any offspring out there competing today?

    oh my gosh...I've had several of those offspring over the years and LOVED them. I found them to be jumping MACHINES. They seem to fall into two camps, though and I say this from knowing seven of them still in this area. They either were sound as a dollar, or they were lame very early on in their life. Every single one of them was big, grey, mediocre movers, but brave, scopey, and LOVED LOVED LOVED to jump. Most of them did the hunters but the one I rode for years could jump 4' + in his sleep. At 21 years old he is now doing walk trot with a nine year old student of mine. If I came across one and it was sound, I would scoop it up in a second! It's not a mare by chance??? ;-) Call me if you want more input

    this is a mare I worked with for years out of Jessamy's program...

    I owned a Landkoenig son out of the Rouson-bred show jumper Captiva who was sired by the Silver Baron. I bought the colt as a yearling from VaTech at their annual sale in '06. This colt named Le Premier finished at 18 hands and was a very good jumper, very unfussed about his surroundings or a jump's appearance, and had a super, laid-back temperament. Thanks to the influence of both parents, he finished at 18 hands. However, he did not have sound feet and was given away at age 6 after I'd spent quite a bit of time and money to develop him. It was a shame, as he was a talent.

    Diane, unfortunately, that seems to be the story for a lot of them....
