    Default More information on Stud Book sBs

    I am considering a stallion that is approved for breeding with sBs. I am not familiar and the website for NA leaves more questions than answers. Is there any where online that explains the details and requirements of the registry? Do the hold inspections each year for the foals, do the brand, are Tb mares acceptable? I am sure I have other questions too, but that should at least get me started.

    I revisited the registries recently and ending up choosing sBs for a handful of reasons:

    1) They are the 5th ranked jumping studbook in the WBFSH rankings. And given the number of domestic riders and pros that are sitting on sBs horses, there is obvious buy in at the top of the sport with respect to quality.

    2) They are inclusive with respect to all WBFSH recognized bloodlines, including the TB mare, which is so important for the NA market. At the end of the day, I want to work with a registry that allows me to work with the bloodlines that I believe will help me accomplish my breeding goals.

    3) They have exported the European model so American breeders can efficiently register offspring without a lot of unncessary, costly and time consuming hoops to jump through.

    4) My mares have all been approved for breeding by other registries and with sBs, I don't have to start all over again. They will accept the mares with their approvals from the other registries.

    5) They are cost effective.

    6) They are user-friendly and their breeding policies are straightforward.

    I should add the sBs judging panel recently visted our farm to look at two retired competition stallions who have retired here. It was a great experience. The judges clearly were very knowledgeable and had a keen eye to what they were looking for and the stallions, even though retired, had to step up to the plate and prove their worth to be licensed.

    The only "negative" I see to sBs is that it is clearly a hunter/jumper focused registry so if I do anymore dabbling into dressage breeding, I'll need to go with one of the broader focused registries.

    I agree that sBs is predominately for hunter/jumper breeding (a good thing :-) ). However, when Ramzes SF went through the 70 day test, he was approved sBs because of his big gaits. When I asked about this, the inspectors said they will be looking to approve more stallions that have big, elastic, uphill movement to appeal to dressage breeders (round out the registry more) and to complement the jumper mares who may have lost movement through strictly breeding selectively for jumping. Ramzes SF and his rider/trainer have been schooling with Conrad Schumacher. If all goes well, they will spend six weeks in FL this winter schooling with Conrad and Anne Gribbons, confirming PSG and ....
