    Default Harvard as a hunter sire? What kind of jump?

    Anyone with experience with Harvard babies. Im not sure that his foals are old enough to see jumping style, but looking for your experience with his foals as far as jump style, movement, temperament and bone/height.

    Although Harvard has primarily been bred to dressage horses, he does not seem to 'kill' the jump.

    When I had my Harvard colt for sale I received a few calls from trainers looking in particular for Harvard offspring for top hunters. One told me that one of the top hunters (3 years ago or so) was a Harvard offspring....sorry, I do not remember the name of the horse, but, just wanted to relay my experience. My colt had a very "hunter" style jump but was a bit too big of a mover for hunter world
