Take it from someone that had the same dream as you seemed to have...unless you focus all your energy towards one goal, it won't happen.
Behind you 100% Spyder.
It's great that you want to be so successful, but telling me that you want to go to the Olympics on this horse for showjumping/eventing, but also want to ride Grand Prix dressage at a competitive level at the same time... and now wanting to put her in foal... you have to take your pick.
As for the QH for an eventing prospect, don't just chuck him over your mare because someone said he's nice. I think you are underestimating all parts of the horse industry again. Just have a look at the breeding subforum, to find reasons as to why NOT to breed 'just because'. Like I said to you earlier, don't just pack it in when the going gets tough. I have a suspicion that you want to put her in foal because she's making life hard for you at the moment. Why not concentrate on your other two? You said one was your second choice for the Olympics? So why not concentrate on getting him going?
A CB is a clevland bay, depending on the size and type of your mare, they can produce some wonderful eventing horses over tb mares.
