Need opinion on possible stallion choice
Here I go again sharing more info then I care to on here :lol:

I have been eyeing this stallion for awhile now. I am breeding for an eventer, hopefully potential for upper levels. Some of you may remember a Trek stallion I had shared earlier who my heart was set on. However a few things make me second guess it(biggest one being the fact that the foal would not be eligible for any registries)

Anyway moving on. I have been eyeing this stallion for awhile. I know him and he has a lovely temperament and throws amateur friendly foals. Which is desirable in my area should I ever have to sell in the future.

So... opinions? I am not asking you to tear the stallion to pieces. I am just looking for opinions on him and I can share pics of my mare if need be.


From the Ashes - Approved CSHA Stallion born 2006, 16.2 h.h.

From the Ashes is a remarkably kind and athletic stallion with the bloodlines to please both dressage and jumping enthusiasts. He is by the Grand Prix dressage stallion, VDL Navarone and is a grandson of the legendary Jus De Pomme - two time Olympic gold medalist in show jumping. Also descended from such notable horsas as G. Ramiro Z, Armston, Bold Ruler and Apertif, this stallion will produce athletes capable of succeeding in any of the Olympic disciplines.

From the Ashes is demonstratinog superior ability on the flat and over fences. His people oriented nature makes him highly trainable and a pleasure to work with. His first offspring are powerful and athletic with up hill builds and expceptional temperments. This versatile young stallion is an excellent choice for mare owners wishing to produce good natured foals with presence and ability.

I like him better than the other one you picked out.

Really?! I've been drooling over Tzigane *Pb* for so long lol... Interesting... :think:

I don't know how I feel about how his jump... his knees are nice but the lower leg makes me go "hmm" for an eventer.

Another jumping pic

Lower set neck, steep shoulder, short, upright pastern = very limited trot. His jumping.......well, you said it......
not my cup of tea. BUT, keep in mind I might have a different type of horse - taste;-)

okay so like I said in chat, he's very handsome and seems to be a decent mover I like his knees a lot but I agree with you that he dangles his back legs a bit, though you said these were older/baby pics of him so maybe that's changed.

My coach is really pushing for me to breed to this boy. My mare for those who haven't seen... I am scared that his lower set neck and steep shoulder will take away from my girl. She has a trot to die for, like we get 9's in dressage... I don't want him to take from that.


(excuse the winter fuzzies and lack of conditioning, she had just had a couple months off because I couldn't ride)

I would have loved one of the Trakehner's for her.
To stick with the type of horse, I'd look into direction Hannover or Oldenburg, with a little " blood" added. In fact, I, personally, would try to stay as pure as possible within the two breeds, accepting only TB as " foreign" addition. Seems to compliment her best.

deserthorsewoman 06-16-2013 08:49 PM get the temperament you want, look at the indexes from the performance testing of stallion and his sire. That should give you some security.

NBEventer 06-16-2013 08:57 PM

I love a Trakehner for her too... I really hate that my registry options are shut down if I bred to a Trakehner *sigh*

Everyone here is pushing me to breed her to this stallion. He is a nice enough boy, I love him and he is "the" go to breeding stallion for eventing here. But he just does not "Wow" me like Tzigane *Pb* does.

Decisions!!!!!!!!! *runs away crying*
