stud suggestions

I would like to breed Beauty this spring. I am having a really hard time choosing a stud because I'm drawn to the Western Pleasure types and I'm THINKING maybe I should aim for an english type... Any suggestions on studs?

(Beauty is a 15 year old registered QH) I know these pix arent great but she doesn't pose very well...

What is your goal for the foal?

Here are a few that would be a good all around prospect. There both english horses but they were under all around when I searched them.
Tell me what you think

Your mare isn't really tall, so trying to get a 16hh or 17hh baby probably isn't going to happen, not to mention that she's not really 'typey' for english. I would love to say that doesn't matter, but I show a 15hh paint English, and I'll tell you--its frustrating when taller horses win in under saddle classes... just because they're taller. Argh! It doesn't happen all the time, and if you want to just stay local then I'd say go for it. But I know height is super important in quarter horse, so in my opinion... I'd say go for a WP stud.

With that behind said, look for one with a somewhat short back, a little more height, and a niiice neck--your mare could use a little in the nice-neck department. But I love her face and she has that nice low headset--depending on her movement, I think you'd get a lovely WP baby from her.

If you have high budget I would go with One Hot Krymsun. His fee is $3250 this year. He seems to really pass on his good traits to his foals. I have known a few of them and have gotten to have the first ride on one of them. They are naturally talented and such awesome movers. They should be able to do well in all around events. If your budget is lower you may be able to find a younger, less proven son of his at a much lower stud fee. Also it is a very hot bloodline right now and you should have no problem trying to sell the baby if you choose to do so.

One Hot Krymsun ~ AQHA Stallion ~ Three Time World Champion ~ Four Time Congress Champion

I agree with Pass The Asset also. He may give you a bit more of an english horse than OHK.

I would decide what EXACTLY you want in a foal before you breed. Too many people breed their mares without specific goals in mind.

What faults does your mare have that you want to correct?

For true class I would look at this guy. Approved in multiple registries including some warmblood ones that would also allow a foal to be registered in, outside of AQHA.


The babies he is producing should be able to do any sport english or western and are a class act in themselves.
