You have to consider that they might have some hefty mare requirements as well, and may only breed to certain other breeds so that his get can be registered.

I'm sure not a conformation expert, but that's really a truly lovely stallion. His jumping is so fluid.

What exactly is a Nakota horse...Mustang type breed?? Somehow a cross to a Warmblood seems a bit strange,breed types are not alike

Yeah... I'm only hoping. That's actually my biggest concern

Yes it's a type of mustang, from North Dakota. There is a lot of disagreements about the history of them. They're basically 'war ponies'. Extremely intelligent, athletic, agile, fast, and make excellent endurance horses. They're like quarter horses, but built differently, and in my opinion are better all around horses. Some have animated movements and can move like Giacomo does (Mine is quite similar). they can be up to about 15.1, so height differences aren't an issue. They also have extra flexible legs, which aids their agility for being all around horses. They're also fully capable of clearing 6 feet fences, we had another mustang do that to go after a coyote

Is she a range hore or has she been bred down so that you know her lineage? I wouldn't ever breed a horse who's parentage I didn't know, because you never know what kind of defects they might throw.

I'm not trying to be the party pooper, just trying to give you some information you may not have thought of. What would you want the baby to do? Something about a Quarter horsish, mustang type build isn't going to match up well with a tall, lean, up hill WB too well. I do realize that mustangs (and I'd guess Nokotas too?) come in many shapes and sizes because they're scrub horses that basically just ended up as a melting pot for unwanted ranch horses or stallions turned loose/escaped, but I've never seen a mustang that looked like a warmblood. They've been all sorts of heights, but most are thick, sturdy type animals with 'survival' as their gene pool weed wacker.

IMO the last thing a breeding should be, is an experiment.

He looks gorgeous going around on course. Overall looks like a very smooth ride with a good attitude, and his jump is awesome!

Yes, my horse is ranch bred, not range bred. I know her lineage right up to her great grandparents. She has strong sturdy legs and feet, but otherwise is lighter boned with a lighter build. She is also going to finish growing around 15 hands. As far as I know of there aren't any issues or defects in her pedigree.
This would also be my first time breeding a horse if I did breed her. There very few horses that aren't nokotas that I'd cross her with... My goal would to be to produce a well put together nice horse that would do fairly well in both English and western disciplines.

He is nice, but if you are going to breed her, why not to a more Spanish type horse like an Andulasian, Azteca, etc...

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
