Selecting The Right Stallion Breed

I plan on breeding my mare in a few years after I graduate college and she gets some show experience under her belt, but then she'll be around 8 (right now she's 4). She's a percheron/tb cross mare and she's being trained for eventing. What I want to know is what would be a good breed to breed her with?

I was thinking a warmblood like a Hanoverian or Oldenburg or maybe a Frisian. I plan on raising the baby and training and showing it myself! So all idea and opinions would be great. Its never to early to start stallion hunting :)

Is she more on the draft side, or tb side? (look wise)

I think a picture to see how she is put together would help.

Shes definitely more on the draft side

Have you thought of breeding her to a more refined breed such as the nweer looking thoroughbreds? The "new" thoroughbreds are built completely different from the older ones. They are more refined and bred for more than just racing. Do you plan on doing eventing with the offspring?
I think if you find a nicely build refined thoroughbred, you would get a great looking baby and horse!!!!!!

I agree to look at something more modern. In the warmbloods, if you look there, there is lots of more modern sires. Schroeder is super and greeat for all around too, but lots to choose from out there.

How about a more refined Friesian? I love those Friesian crosses!

I would steer clear of a Friesian stallion for this mare seeing as she is part draft and is a heavy kind of girl already. Since the OP is looking to produce something for eventing she should stick with more modern, lighter type stallions. Schroeder is a nice guy and is modern type so that is a good suggestion. There are lots of nice TB's and Trakehner stallions that I'd be more apt to suggest for this type of mare. I'll suggest you look at my stallion Pacific. He is a modern refining stallion with high level eventing potential himself. He has started competing in dressage and will be entering the jumper ring this year as well. His dam Pleasure (Enrico Caruso/Parana) was imported from the German Trakehner stud as a 3 year old along with her sire Enrico Caruso and the stallion Amethyst. Pleasure competed successfully as an event horse herself. Pacific's sire Dalnomer was well known for producing very successful h/j and event horses in this area, and Pacific is no exception.
