    I was going to mention Rubignon also. My 2+ yr. old Rubignon is at 16H, same size as dam, so she will be considerable larger than her momma.

    Rubignon was in Sweden and has sufficient number of offsprings register with SWANA to have a Blup index:
    Rubignon's BLUP
    Scroll down you will see that under height he does have a positive number: this indicates that he adds some height.

    I would add Sir Gregory. Although it's still early in his breeding career, every breeder I've spoken to who has one remarks on the size of the foals. My Sir G is huge -- over 16hh as a long yearling. (I've taken to calling her the Georgia-saurus.) Her mother is a solid 16.3, so I expected some height, but I think Sir G may have added some to that! I'll be very surprised if this filly doesn't finish over 17hh. Other nice benefits are super movement and a great temperament. I'd breed to him again in a heartbeat.

    I have heard of some good-sized foals, also, but I am not surprised - SG has a fair amount of height in his pedigree. Most of the stallions up close in his pedigree (Sir Donnerhall I, Sandro Hit, Donnerhall, Don Gregory) are between 16.3h - 17.1h. And I don't know how tall his dam was, but her dam is listed at 17.1h.

    He is a super nice horse, though - no matter what size his foals are!

    We have a mare who has had 7 foals now, and she is 15.3h. Her biggest was by Harvard (and nicest I might add). Also I think Landkoenig is known to produce height. Just because they are tall themselves doesn't mean they'll produce it unfortunately... we've definitely found that. I also have not seen a small Apiro and he tends to add good push to the movement.

    Out of curiousity, what other traits would you say Harvard passed on? I have heard good things about him.

    I am the owner of the premium German Oldenburg stallion Soprano (Sandro Hit/Contender/Tin Rocco). You may want to consider him for your mare.

    Soprano typically adds height to his offspring. He also produces modern type offspring with excellent movement, jumping ability, and wonderful character. His pedigree brings a great deal of versatility with Sandro Hit, Contender and Tin Rocco. Please visit my Web site at www.oldecountryfarm.com for detailed information on the accomplishments and talents of Soprano's ancestors.

    Soprano has produced horses that have competed very well at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses and other major national competitions in Europe. His oldest offspring in North America are now 3 years of age and are already starting to win under saddle and in hand.

    The following links will take you to video of two of my young Soprano offspring as well as video of Soprano himself exhibiting his high level of talent for FEI level dressage.

    Default Stallion that throws height

    Have to agree fully with Gatsby - have a mare that has consistently thrown her height - until she was bred to Gatsby. That foal will definitely be a lot taller than she. Also, he added substance, great mind, suspension, freedom and reach of shoulder and good, powerful hindquarters. Mare is extremely well-bred for hunter-jumper, but lacked size and substance. Gatsby gave that to her foal.
