    There are a lot of Cabardino youngsters in my area and they all jump really well!

    Cassini I, Parco, Darco, Douglas, Apiro, Voltaire, Caretino, Indoctro, Balou du Rouet, Calido I, Acorado I, Lordanos, and I could go on and on. Although, he has very few offspring on the ground but Vallado (aka Praise) should be on the radar.

    I second Balou du Rouet and his sons, and Apiro! Also a side-note- I just started my 2-year-old Apiro filly under saddle, and OMG! This filly was gold premium at her inspection, is a very good mover, and is a freakishly good jumper through the jump chute. Most important, though- she is the easiest, smartest, softest baby I've ever started! I've been breeding hunters for over 12 years and have a lot that have gone on to be very successful in the show ring, but this is without a doubt my favorite one so far! Apiro is a gem!

    Which hunter stallions are the mot proponent for great jump style
    Do you mean the MOST PREPOTENT for great jump style?

    I have heard most of the ones on SJ66's list mentioned time and again by hunter breeders as being very reliable sires for hunter-type jumping ability. I also have a friend who likes Cabardino quite a bit and is planning a repeat breeding to him for her Voltaire mare.

    Actually, out of all the babies we have had that we have seen jump (that are old enough, etc), the Don Alfredo has the most freakish jumping style of them all. We have others that are good (Apiro being one of them), but this one is a freak, and also a freak mover. The dam is THE hack winner and is a scopey jumper, but not near as crafty with the front end as the filly.

    I agree with SJ66 on other suggestions, but was giving the ones we have experience with personally - IMO Balou du Rouet seems so very consistent for passing the unbelievable jump.

    I'm kicking myself for not breeding to Vallado several years ago.

    Vallado is available fresh semen this year! We are taking advantage and breeding three mares to him while we can.

    I wouldn't worry about size with Cabardino. I have seen several large youngsters from smaller framed mares.

    I've always liked Vallado a lot - he has a beautiful type and a great, scopey jump. I wouldn't hesitate to use him in a program to breed hunters. Make that jumpers too! Lovely stallion!

    All mentioned are terrific stallions - I bred my wonderful hunter mare to Sir Caletto years ago - I wanted to improve her front end (my mare's that is ) - and I did - I bred to Sir Caletto because while at the old Indio? Watching him in the Working Hunters with Hap Hansen riding? Stopped the whole crowd the jump was so beautiful!

    But others mentioned are terrific too - it is the "hunter" part that is challenging I'd pick a really good "hunter" mare and then match up to what needs improving

    I have a very nice Ammy friendly mare I'd like to breed. She has only one flaw which is she was always a little weak behind. I've been injecting her hocks since she was 8. Any suggestions on which one of the stallions mentioned have the soundest hind ends but still are Ammy friendly?
    You don't scare me. I ride a MARE!

    All the Gold was the quintessential hunter jumper...and he passed on that trait to his get. We are proud to be standing one of his boys at our farm. Thanks for the Gold. His first get are due this spring. Here he is as a little tike and a photo of him showing off his inherited hunter jump.
