I need help with choosing a stallion

Hi, I own a five year old Arabian mare and plan to breed her next year. She is 16hh at the moment and we think the she will mature at 16.2hh the same height as her half-brother

I need help with finding either an Arabian or Warmblood stallion possibly in Canada.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

It would be a lot easier to help you find a suitable stallion if you posted some conformation pictures of you mare so we can find a stallion that would compliment her.

Also, some questions:
Where are you located?
How far are you willing to drive to breed your mare?
How much are you willing to pay for a stud fee?
What are your future plans for the foal?
Do you have the money/time/facilities for a foal?
Do you have 2 fields that are out of view from each other come weaning time, or can you board your mare at a stable until the foal has been weaned?
Can you afford the vet bills?
Do you really need to have a foal from your mare or could you buy a weanling?

Like ilovesonya said, how much do you want to pay? What type of horse are you hoping to breed? (what will it be used for)

Ok I will try and get pictures posted tommorow for Ilovesonya's questions here are the answers

Where are you located?
I am located in Prince George British Colombia
How far are you willing to drive to breed your mare?
It would be easier for me to find a stallion in BC or Alberta but for the next month we are going on vacation to Ontario and will be driving so if there are stallions in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec we would be able to go see them.
How much are you willing to pay for a stud fee?
we are willing to pay at the most a $10,000 stud fee
What are your future plans for the foal?
Either dressage, or Hack classes.
Do you have the money/time/facilities for a foal?
Yes we do
Do you have 2 fields that are out of view from each other come weaning time, or can you board your mare at a stable until the foal has been weaned?
yes we have 2 fields
Can you afford the vet bills?
yes we can
Do you really need to have a foal from your mare or could you buy a weanling?
Yes we would like to have a foal

We would like to breed her for a couple reasons I want another horse for showing at a higher level such as scotsdale and such. Also If I wish to breed her in the future It is easier for them to take if they have had atleast one foal when their reproduction system is still active.

Not sure if you would consider AI but there is a stud near me and you could do AI breeding with him I am pretty sure. He is a pure Polish Arabian and stands at about 16hh maybe a tad shorter, he is a big boy for an Arabian though. He has foals on the ground and I could provide you with pictures of at least one of his fillies. Said filly is amazing, she is pretty much the picture perfect Arabian foal.

If you are interested I will post him for you to see.
