Hi - new horse owner and new here! I have a dual registered Trak/Paint 9 yo mare out of Kaspareit. Golden personality! So smart, laid back and willing. She is going in for 90 days pro sport horse training and will be up for sale in the spring as she really needs to be so much more than a trail horse. Will post pictures after her conditioning in the spring! In the meantime, you can google a picture of Kaspareit (who had the famous Impuls in his bloodlines 3 times!).
Trakehners are a semi-closed breed. They don't allow any non-Trak/ TB/ Arabian breeding, but they are still open to inspected TBs and Arabians (inc Shagya and Anglo Arabians). All horses bred must be approved for breeding, but their is rules on who can be bred. For instance you cannot breed two approved TBs or two approved Arabians, and have a Trakehner. You cannot breed an approved half trak to an approved non trakehner either (i.e. If an approved TB mare is bred to a Trakehner and has a filly, and the filly is approved, and then bred to an approved TB stallion.. it's not a trakehner, except in 1 instance and that was the exception and quite costly to the owner of the 3/4 TB mare I understand). There is a lot of Anglo/Shagya/Arabian/ TB blood in the Trakehner breed, and many are found in other warmblood breeds (i.e. Gribaldi is a trakehner stallion that is approved KWPN, and sired Totilas), but the Trakehner breed doesn't accept any other warmblood breeds, unlike many of the other registries.
