    Default what kind of stallion for TB mare?

    A friend of mine asked me this, but since I deal exclusively in thoroughbreds, I didn't have a good answer for her. So wanted to ask suggestions...

    She has a nice TB mare that has absolutely beautiful hunter movement; flat-kneed, daisy cutter trot, a canter like a metronome and is a very good jumper. The mare is very big-bodied for a TB and looks warmbloody, but she has the typical low-set thoroughbred neck. What type/breed of stallion would be the best cross for her to (hopefully) produce a baby suitable for lower-level eventing? Her biggest concern is lightening the frontend and getting more dressagey movement while preserving her mare's jump and attitude. Height is not a concern. Thanks!

    Do you have any pictures or the mares pedigree?

    A few that come to mind (altho not sure about the dressage movement) are:

    Apiro
    ROC USA
    Cunningham
    Concerto Grosso
    Amazing
    Rubinus
    Baron Von Gogh
    Landkoenig
    Ironman


    There are certainly more than just what I listed above..

    I would recommend that the owner looks at many of the video's of the stallions and their offspring before making a decision..

    A Trakehner of course!

    The ATA stallion auction usually starts around the beginning of February and there are a great selection of stallions to choose from. In the mean time she can drool over this list

    I think EH Buddenbrock could be a great fit, particularly if she is a very good jumper.
