I would personally go with the 10 year old.
A 10 year old would just be alot less trouble if you want a horse for showing.
A 2 year old that has only just been broken in would take more time, where a 10 year old should almost be ready to go.
Ps. Isn't 2 a little young to be broken in?
And they show it aswell? Wow!

2yrs old is young to be showing under saddle, I wouldn't touch that with someone elses 10 foot pole, the health issues that youngster will be facing make me shudder....norm is 3 to 3.5 yrs to START under saddle, thier skeletal structure doesn't fully mature until the age of 4.

Norm in OTHER disciplines. It is rare to find an ASH with good breeding that hasn't been started at two for the 3yo futurity. It is not ideal, but it is also something that just is. Most horses with good trainers are started slowly and don't have many issues down the track.

I have no idea what ASH is, what I do know is that it's not good for the horse to be ridden that young. I googled ASH still found nothing lol, anyone care to enlighten me?

I know what you mean about the others, definitely more show horses than cow horses, except Bryjen. I love Cadabra but his progeny haven't impressed me as much as the progeny of the others. I met a young Cadabra colt when I picked up my mare - the guy had him and a Bryjen colt. He said the Cadabra colt has a bit of dirt in him, whereas the Bryjen colt was much more amenable. Though of course it may just be that he appeals to a different type of mare than the 'showier' boys, which can make all the difference.

I think anyone can find a 'bad' example by just about any stallion out there - don't forget the mare is a good 50% or more of the equation.. I just bought a gorgeous Cadabra filly for a lot of money, and I couldn't be more impressed with her type and temperment.. My friend also has a gorgeous hack type Cadabra gelding (out of a TB), that will be hitting the shows next year.. He is so trainable and laid back with it..

The other sires have had longer to get more progeny (out of arguably better mares) on the ground, Cadabra is a relatively new Fort Abdul sire at only 8yo.. Fort Talon has had a good 6 years head start in the breeding game ;)
