Truth be told, he is an awesome little horse but I don't have the time, experience, knowledge or drive to keep and show a stud. He's a very in your pocket type horse already and would love to just work all day every day and be with people. Which will work nicely without the added temptation of being a stud.
Thanks all for your comments. I will try to get a good video of him later on in his training and share it with you.
I bought my last horse as a three year old stallion. Was not what I was looking for! But I had my trainer who was a breeder and had four stallions of her own to help me. I debated for a month whether to geld. Lovely horse, superb temperament and movements like liquid.
But his full brother stands at stud.
He was three and didn't realize he still had his bean bags.
And the prejudice from other riders and owners making stupid sudden movements and working their horses up Round us made it difficult.
Gelding was the best choice I made with him. Within eight weeks he was turned out with another pony and has never changed his attitude.
I am not a dedicated breeder, and it would have been for selfish reasons.
It is so refreshing to see another stallion owner look beyond the "I has a pretty stallion" to look at the long term, short term and wider options.
He is absolutely stunning, and I wish you all the best for the future in reining!
