Not so true about Anky... She still rides dutch horses.
Those that do ride horses with TB blood in them in the dressage ring don't exactly show up to a racing farm and pick out your garden variety TB for a sire or dam. The horses are usually put through a rigorous approval process before they are bred and only the exceptional TBs are accepted, or even tried.

If it can't make it into a stud book it shouldn't be bred IMO

On the first point, judges have been rewarding tense uptight horses that have been rollkured until they can't breathe. Anky used rollkur before it was banned and I strongly suspect she uses 'low deep and round' now [which is the exact same thing!]. Her leg is incredibly noisy and her hands don't sit still. I don't like her as a rider.

Competition dressage is not necessarily GOOD dressage. I saw a score awarded at GP level of in excess of 80% for a test that was riddled with mistakes.

On the second point, I had heard of Smash Hit. Nice breeding for the dressage arena.

Is the mare tested and approved for warmblood breeding?
