At this point I'm speaking in a hypothetical sense as I don't know what I want to do yet or if it would even be a good idea.
I have a beautiful standardbred mare. She is a trotter, built more like a tb and has a beautiful way about her. She is quiet, level headed and has a work ethic unlike any horse I've met. She has a beautiful floating trot and level balanced canter. After only 5 rides she stands quiet to be mounted and I took her on her first trail ride where she lead the way going through ditches full of water, walks over fallen trees and goes anywhere you point her. She trots quietly under saddle, doesn't even try to pace. And she is starting to work "on the bit" at the walk. Have I mentioned an 11 year old girl is riding her? Granted the kid is talented and an excellent rider but still.
I want to get her out showing and see how she does and if she proves herself in the show ring I think I'd like to breed her. However I'd want to breed to a sport horse or tb.
Would you breed her? Putting prejudice against standies aside. If so who would you recommend for a stud? I would like to be able to register the foal as a sport horse. Again this is only a thought right now and pretty much hypothetical.
