So I am looking to breed my Thoroughbred mare in the next two years or so, depending on my pony club ratings and how she progresses through them ( I am hoping to do my B on her in about a year and a half). She is 16.1 hands, has good bone and a great mind. I have competed in flat and o/f with her, and mainly want to focus on jumpers this year.
I am looking for a warmblood stallion, color does not matter one bit to me, only getting a quality foal. I am looking for a stallion with a great neck/shoulder attachment, nice hip angles, a strong hind end and good hock angles as well. I would like the stallion to be a proven jumper, but also have great movement. I am deffinatly looking to compete in jumpers, hunters do not interest me much, though if the stallion does hunters and the offspring are athletic, I am open to them. Height wise, I would like the stallion to be 16.2 hands at the least. As far as breed, I love hanoverians and dutch warmbloods but am open to others as well. Price range is max $3,000.
I do live in Alaska, and there are no stallions up here that I would even consider breeding to, so I would have to do AI, prefferably fresh cooled, not frozen.
I have thought about all of my options. Going to the auction or adopting is not an option for me up here, as there are no auctions.
Here are a few that I have thought about -
3. Consul - not sure, he has great offspring, but doesnt compete much.
4. Cabardino - I know he is a hunter stallion
5. Redwine - Again, a hunter stallion
6. Don de marco - not so sure, love his movement, but he is not a jumper.
Thank you so much!
ps. Ill post pics soon
