It was in post #9, Spyder: Gran Casso - Split Mesquite Farm

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I very much like your choice in stallions. I, also, am curious to see how your mare matches him.

Some decent jumpers have come from that line and a few dressage horses but this particular sub line in not very well known and not a sought after line (Weingau is probably the only one with any real credentials).

The sire's dam line originated with the TB Vollkorn and did not become an established line ( at least in the main Hanoverian production line).

The Dutch stallion Nimmerdor is the one that you can say is the best contributor to good blood and in the area of jumper mostly.

Grand Casso dam line also includes the Trakehner line but it also appears to be there for refinement only and nothing of note has come from this line.

So if the OP was looking for a dressage horse nothing from this sire even whispers dressage. Mostly jumper and there is again the pasterns of Joey certainly look like they came from the sire.

No it is not more acceptable in sports horses. TBH 3rd level dressage is within the reach of most semi athletic type horses/ponies if the owner is prepared to put the work in to them/has the knowlege. I know of lots of purebred connemaras, several Fell and dale ponies, some highlands and even a hafflinger that are competing at higher levels then 3rd level (which is approx medium level over here), it is above that level that it gets harder. Personaly I wouldnt have looked at the stallion at all.

Your lad is going to struggle with those upright hocks for dressage as getting his weight back over them is going to put enormous pressure on them and they have a greater chance of not standing up to the pressure.

My lad is sports horse bred (dutch warmblood lines) and his hocks are realy good.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
