Personally I am not partial to Dutch Warmbloods for my own riding. However, were the horse to be sent out for all of its training to an experienced person in your area, Ruben O would probably throw a very talented horse.

Were it me breeding, and I breed and buy for temperament first, I would breed to the Donnerwetter stallion. If you look at the breeding of the dressage horses at WEG, a sizable portion were Donnerhall sons, or closely related to Donnerhall. I would breed both mares to the Donnerwetter, hope for a mare or two and breed back to the Rubenstein or Walt Disney lines.
Before you breed the mares, get them inspected for the Hanoverian studbook, and if they're accepted you can register the foals as Hanoverians, which will increase the value. I love Hanoverians, they are widely good tempered and also very talented.
If you aren't stuck on going Hanoverian, look for some Come Back II lines. He is a great sire, and although you can't get his semen in North America, he has some wonderful sons like Calecto V.

Good luck!

If they are inspected while in foal...does it count for that foal?

I have pretty much decided on breeding the older mare to Don de Marco as I just love him, his breeding and his price really doesn't hurt either. I want a horse I can do dressage and low level eventing on so I definitely think he is my best bet. I'm still on the fence about breeding the other mare at 4 so I might wait a year with her and get some miles and see where her true strengths are before I breed her.

If she's not crazy hot or otherwise crazy, chuck some semen in her. A foal won't hurt her and it is good for foals to grow up with a friend. You never know, she might throw nice foals and you might just want to breed her.

Good luck!

ETA: about the inspection thing, I'm unsure but you can call them and ask. I don't know if the stud is eligible for Hano foals though, you'd have to check that too. The foals will be far more valuable if they are registered under a European sport horse registry (Ie. Oldenburg or Hano, etc..).

LMFAO @ chuck some semen in her. Finances will be the biggest contributor for whether I breed the younger mare as well. Unless I move some projects I have going now I won't have the money to take advantage of their "sale on semen" and then I really won't be able to afford to breed both of them. We shall see though. I plan on rescuing a foal or mare with foal to grow up with the other one if I only breed one of the mares. I agree that they should grow up with a friend and I can help a less highly bred foal find a home so no worries on that front.

So I missed the deadline for the cheap semen =(. Had an emergency vet and emergency car repair bill so my breeding fund got depleted =(. Still looking to breed the older mare sometime in the spring though. So my price range is around $1000 and I want the baby to ultimately do the young event horse stuff and move up the levels. So...any suggestions for new stallions will be appreciated! A Don de Marco breeding is definitely on my Christmas list for next year though!!
