I have a mare that I just love. She is a 16.1hh Hessen mare that competed successfully as a hunter before I owned her. She has one foal with a tb stallion that was approved silver premium RPSI.
She is an older mare, so I probably have one opportunity to breed for a foal of my own. The foal will most likely stay here with me, and I would pursue dressage.
I am having a hard time selecting a stallion, as I am just not that educated or familiar with what my mare's pedigree would be best suited to breed to in order to get the best foal I can WITH a great temperment. (NOT looking for a pro ride, I want a horse that I can stand to live with first and foremost) I know what I like as far as structure and type, and right now I am considering Linaro.
If you have the time to look at my mare's photo's/pedigree, Id love some opinions, either here or pm me. Thank you in advance!
Pedigree: Sire Marlo (holsteiner), Dam Furiosa (hessen)
I also have a Marlon grand-daughter, though she is full Holsteiner. She has crossed very well with sons of Contender. She has had one by Contefino and two by Contester. You can see them all on my website. The mare is Parlona. Her offspring (all under 'sold horses') are Wandah, Valonia and Calixto. There are several Contender sons here in the US, and many more in Germany.
