Both horses (mare and stud) should be able to score well over 80-85% in an inspection where conformation, type and ability are judged.
Then temperament plays a huge role in deciding whether to breed the horse or not.

The horse needs to be nearly "perfect" before I feel it is breeding quality.

Agreed with the criteria Anebel has listed, but before I'd breed to anything I want to see achievement. As has been rehashed time and time again on this forum, even owners with the best of intentions fall upon hard times when a horse could be offered for sale. Horses with achievement or parental achievement are far easier to market.
Sure, everyone has to start somewhere, but with the amount of incredibly talented, proven horses in today's world, there's no excuse for breeding to an unproven horse no matter how nice, other then "he was cheap".

We find that the mare is all important, no matter how good the stallions creditentals are if the mare didnt preform herself or have the ability to do so you are at nothing. Begin by getting the best mare you can find! We breed alot of mares at our stud ( www.sporthorses.ie )and the only ones that go on are the ones out of the better mares, and of course pedigree goes a long way too!
