Good Jumper/Dressage Pedigrees?
I'll be the first to admit that I have never really cared where my horses came from (pedigree wise) as long as they could do the job I wanted. However that was when I was solely looking at already started horses with some experience. After having been a working student and then a groom for some time I got a good deal of experience in riding not only green horses but in helping start horses from the ground up, and I think I'd like my next horse (whenever I have the money) to be a yearling or two year old when I get it.
I've been window shopping (bad Kate, bad!) and found a lovely little 2 y/o RPSI-registered filly somewhat near me. I'm NOT thinking of buying her at all because I know I can't afford a horse right now, however I was looking at her pedigree and realized I'm completely clueless. Would any of you be willing to take a look and tell me what horses in her lines were known for producing? I'm a pretty experienced eventer, but where I'm living now the eventing scene is rather lacking, so when I do get a new horse I'd like to point them towards some jumpers in the long run, though I'm not at all averse to doing straight dressage either (we're just rather lacking in a stable dressage scene as well).
Here's the pedigree of the filly in question; Soleil Ges Zweibrucker
And for kicks, here's a short video of the filly as well;
Edit: And here's the pedigree for a half-sibling to the above filly, by the same stallion but out of a WB mare- http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/stille+nacht+ges
