    Default TB stallions (or RIDSH) with great performance pedigree?

    I am looking for a TB stallion or maybe a RIDSH with at least 1/2 TB to breed to 2 RID/RIDSH mares. We are looking for correct conformation and bone, good temperament and athletic ability. Also there would have to be the ability to get shipped cooled semen. Eastern or Midwest US preferred.
    Did anybody use a good stallion with a great pedigree, maybe with a youngster on the ground or even better, competing (eventing)? Not looking for a 'famous' stallion, but for the right one! Love Sociano's pedigree but not sure about shipping. Anybody breed to him?
    Thanks for any information!

    I wonder if Corporate Report is still standing.... He's got eventing offspring (with FEI passports) and a nice pedigree for sport.

    He also won enough on the track to have fulfilled his RPSI sport requirement so his foals would also be eligible for registry that way.

    Check out Sea Lion, first foals due in 2013 but a proven *** horse, ATA and Old/ISR approved. His sire, Sea Salute, also sired Out To Sea, an Intermediate Eventer, Sea Lord, prelim eventer and GP dressage horse, and Vassago, prelim eventer as well as others.

    Also what about Salute The Truth? Triple Twist is line bred Bonne Nuit, he has passed away but has foals on the ground and frozen available.

    Take a look at our stallion Just a Devil. His first foal, Lucky Devil(the only one from this year) is coming 8 and competing at the Intermediate level with hopes of Advanced in the near future. A 7 year old gelding just sold as an upper level prospect. Another young mare is currently competing at training level and schooling prelim. And the 5 and 6 year old mares we have here are showing great promise.
    He has a great pedigree and is putting athletes with great brains on the ground.

    What about Flexible? He certainly has had a long career as an upper level show jumper.

    I just learned about the TB stallion Rather Well, who evented to Advanced (see current-but-older thread that I just bumped up to get more info/ feedback on him). He has really caught my interest based on his own performance record, pedigree (exemplary for sport), and the type and accomplishments of his babies.

    As it happens, I'm also looking for a full TB or high%TB warmblood to cross to my ISH mare, who incidentally is a Carrig View daughter (one of the Acorn Hill stallions someone else suggested). It's been awhile and i just took a quick look at Carrig View's page again, and realized my mare exactly gets her head/ neck conformation from him. that's the only part of her I'd really like to refine in a foal.

    I'm actually struggling a bit now as there are so many interesting options out there! And the other current thread on first-time breeders is also giving me pause... lots of great points to consider.

    Depends on what you are breeding for. Are you breeding for yourself to bring a foal along as far as it can go and won't be disappointed if you never make it to an FEI competition? Are you hoping to breed for CCIs or CICs? Are you wanting to breed a 3*/4* horse who might come in the top ten? Big difference in the stallion that you might choose.

    Just so you'll know, Rather Well has no offspring registered with the USEF. He's a beautiful horse but I'm also unable to find him in the Dutch database that I use to find FEI results with pedigrees. That's not to say that he doesn't have dozens of get running around events in Canada and the US; it's just that he doesn't seem have any that have him listed as sire.

    vineyridge- thanks for your further comments. I always read any post of yours I see re: pedigrees!

    Perhaps Rather Well's owner can provide a little more info around currently- competing offspring?

    Thanks very much for all the helpful replies. There is quite a few interesting suggestions. Lots of outdated/lacking info out there (like tamarackhill).
    Very much like Sea Lion and Sea Accounts.
    Does anybody have a Formula One or an Aberjack under saddle?
    And of course Just a Devil has got a great pedigree too.
    Lots of choices. Got to find the right one for our girls.

    Aberjack would be very iffy, IMO. He may not be in a good situation for himself or breeders (per rumor, so may not be true) since rumor says he may not be very fertile these days possibly due to age.

    Just a couple of other bits of information from the Dutch FEI database.

    Salute the Truth is in on his own record at FEI competitions (never in the top ten) and Formula One isn't there yet.

    Aberjack is, and he was the leading sire of US event horses before the move to California.

    It all depends on what you want. If you want an UL horse, wouldn't it make sense to breed to one who has done them himself or sired horses who have?

    In terms of generational breeding, you could breed to Pallas Digion (sp), who has proven offspring, hope for a filly, and then breed her to a TB like AFR or the much younger Sea Lion or Sea Accounts. By then you'd be able to have a feel for what the younger stallions produce. Of course by then, AFR will be aged and might not still be standing.

    For a totally out of the box suggestion, there is an aged TB stallion in Virginia named Default. He's done hunters himself, has a lovely pedigree, and is drop dead gorgeous but very creaky, per information.

    Turkowar (TB)--Not well-known, but a stakes-winning grandson of Turkoman, with Alydar, Hoist the Flag and Crozier (twice) in his pedigree. Correct conformation and super quiet disposition. Available live cover and shipped cooled semen. He stands at Oakwood Farm in Missouri.

    No we don't own him, but looking forward to a Turkowar baby in June.

    I love A Fine Romance, and even though I'm biased I love Sea Accounts very much! I'm excited to see what Sea Lion produces this year, also!
