Channteuse Arabian

If this is the right Channteuse, I would snap this mare up in a hot second. And then I'd breed her to a *Padron or Padron Psyche stallion. You'd get looks and ability.

The sire had a stud fee of only a couple hundred bucks, and he made beautiful foals with smooth gaits. My point is, you don't need to pay thousands of dollars to get a talented, athletic foal. IMO

The stud fee is the cheap part of breeding. Maybe the OP can't afford that, or maybe they will let her know of a stallion auction the stallions are in where she can get a reduced fee, or maybe they may know of others that would work for her.

But if you want an arabian that is going to be able to do hunters or jumpers.. why not stack the deck and get advice from people who are actually out there competing in that venue. 10 or 20 years ago, the pleasure driving stallions still had excellent hind ends for the most part. Sadly the rear end has been bred out of a lot of arabian lines (as evidenced by the Park and English Pleasure classes the last 5+ years). And in jumping, more than most disciplines, unlike WP or EP, a hind end that can be collected and engaged, is more critical.

Hot ****! What a pedigree. LOVE that dam line - very similiar to a colt I just bought.
If she takes after her pedigree, she sounds amazing.
