Which Sporthorse Stallion? Survey

So, I can't decide, so please post here, which you think is best. I don't mind anyone saying anything however, please don't just say "he's pretty" because personally, I think they'er all GORGEOUS. You don't have to put a reason just names. I'll put an example below of a good way to post (not to be bossy... just a suggestion)
Here are the options (feel free to suggest if one is not on here. LANDKOENIG is my top pick as of now. Please tear any of them apart though)

Hanoverian Stallions:
Bridlewood Farm Hanoverian Stallions - Fabuleux, 16.3 hand black Class 1 Elite Stallion

Rainbow Equus Meadows I LANKOENIG LANDKOENIG **** 16.3 hand jumper. Recieved 9.5 for stadium in inspection

Beautiful Imported Class I Elite Hanoverian Stallion. Romantic Star 17 hand bay hunter

Holsteiner Stallions:
Silver Creek Farms - Cathalido Cathalido, 17.1 hand bay Holsteiner Stallion

Bavarian Warmblood Stallions:
Silver Creek Farms - Apiro Apiro, 16.3 hand Bavarian WB stallion

Belgian WB Stallions:
BWP-North America 16.1 hand chestnut jumper

BWP-North America Socrates, 17 hand pinto b/w Belgian Warmblood , dressage

BWP-North America Cielo B 16.3 Jumper

BWP-North America Candillo Jr. 16.3 bay jumper

BWP-North America Blue Bayou B, 17.2 bay Belgian WB , dressage

Oldenburg Stallions:
Rainbow Equus Meadows I LANDFRIESE II Landfriese II


What I am looking for:
~At least 16.2 hands (max of around 18.2 or 3. I know that you can't pick but I just have to throw in an idea)
~EVENTER (So strong in both dressage and jumping. Jumping however is the main priority)

What registry is best to be in or register a foal? I think Zengershiede is unique... and cool. Thanks!

I personally don't actually like any of those stallions. No offense to the owners or you for liking them. They just don't appeal to me. I do have a couple that I love which I'll give you the links too but why are you breeding? For you? Or as a business or what? Not that its my business, just curious.

Hilltop Farm, Inc. - The Complete Sporthorse Center
Danse Diabolique - (Donnerhall x Grundstein II x Aktuell) - 1999 Black Oldenburg Stallion - Dreamscape Farm, Langley, BC, Canada

I am a little iffy on Farscape though. I like him, but something about him bothers me. I'd really recommend the first or third. Love the third!

First off, who is the mare? What are her lines? A photo or two would be helpful in determining her flaws, and matching a stallion to her.

I really like Lankoenig, however my experience with Rainbow Equus Meadows wasn't the best, I'm afraid to say. I hope it was an isolated incident, I really haven't heard one way or another; you're welcome to PM me for details.

I would suggest looking at some Select Sales (auctions) results for the lines that are doing well in the sale ring; they're selling well for a reason. Just to name a few, the top sellers at the CWHBA Fall Classic were: Quatarback, Calido Star, Royal Senna, and Simply SM.
Some other stallions I adore right now:
Banderas - (Balou du Rouet x Grannus x Beach Boy) - 2006 Bay Oldenburg Stallion - Dreamscape Farm, Langley, BC, Canada

Now, for registration... I'm by no means an expert, but I'll tell you what I know. From my understanding, in order for you to register a foal with a certain registry, they must qualify for it through one or both parents. There are many, many more intricacies to registering a foal, but the bottom line is that you can't really just pick a regisrty and go for it, there is much more to it.

1) Fabuleux has really good marks on his stallion test, looks like a good mover, it would be worth getting some confo shots and a video or two of him.
2) Landfriese II also had really good marks, has a nice short back, really like his look and how he's put together.
3) Candillo Jr. Had good marks, but not enough pictures to really get a good look at how he's put together.
It also obviously depends on how your mare is put together as well, what things she has that might complement the stallion, what faults either of them have that the other doesn't, to keep from getting those faults in the baby. As well as scoring. If you've taken your mare to have her tested, and put in a stud book, what are her scores, and what stallion has scores to complement or make her scores better in the baby. I will say that I would pick Celio B last, he is croup high, has good bone, but just isn't put together in a way pleasing to the eye. Not sure what exactly it is, but something just doesn't click and make me say WOW, I want to use him. If you could post pictures of the mare as well, I would be able to give you better critiques and opinions on which stallion would be best.

What registries are your mare approved in?

I think Romantic Star is a great stallion, but I've only really seen hunters out of him...

Thanks My mare is a 17.1 hand bay registered Holsteiner mare(although approved by six different registries). I would say her confo flaws are shorter legs than those desired, however she still is capable of jumping the 5+ feet. She's got a wonderful head and everything else is conformationally sound 'per the vet '. I will get some shots up asap
