She's a nice mare. How about a Warmblood, maybe a Hanoverian?

She's a very well-put together mare; I love her bone density and thickness throughout her legs. Breed her to a stallion with a better shoulder to improve on your mare's upright one.

I've always loved Sir Wanabi as a hunter stallion. He's produced some jumpers as well.

I love this cross - TB/Perch. It's always nice when you don't get the heavy-boned luggy draft portion and end up with a nice, uphill, strong-bodied horse. I also love the color. I agree with the Hano suggestion.

That stud equiniphile mentioned is gorgeous! He's winning, and his foals are beautiful. I think he's one you should check out.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I think I would save a stud fee, three years of waiting, vet fees, etc...and buy a three year old that I can see the conformation of. Breeding is just taking too many chances, and you may not get anything near what you are hoping for.

You have a nice mare. That way you could have her in competition ( instead of having her out of competition for almost two years) and start the youngster to come in behind her.
