first time breeder needs GP jumper stallion suggestions! help!

Hi I would like to eventually breed my TB mare. I got her at age 5 a year ago and she is an extremely talented jumper, great with her front end and fancy mover. She is 17 hands and can be a bit feisty. So I am looking for a Grand Prix level stallion that throws compact and has a nice temperament and ride-ability. If there is past precedence for this stallion being bred with TB mares and the outcomes even better. My trainer is suggesting a Cassini I line but I'm just having a hard time searching and finding, im open to other stallions/lines as well. I'm not planning on doing this until 2016/2017 but I want to be very educated on the matter and not make a hasty decision.

I am located in the US and I would prefer to not use frozen as its less likely to that is what I have been told -- unless someone else disagrees and wants to share an opinion on that :) Feel free.

What would your plans be for the foal (resale, keeper, jumper I assume). Do you plan on having the mare inspected?

Hi sorry yes I at this point have had her inspected. She was approved into the premium Holstein book in North America and also Oldenburg ISR, also passed the MPT for Oldenburg.

Review I received was to pick a stallion with a strong trot. I also assume since she is a Tb we need to add a little bone. So I assume an old school type like Ariadus would be a good choice, but looking for other options. I'd probably keep the foal, but potentially sell at some point.

We have free jumped her at 1.45m haven't tried more. She's only 6 so I am working on getting all the fundamentals nailed down before adding height to our 2'7-3ft fences.

I'm open to frozen as well, she reproductively sound and vet says I could use frozen because she so young and a maiden mare - so inherently it's easier than say a 13 year old mare.

She is pretty! Have you looked at Iron Spring Farm? Or the place in Oklahoma that bought my old trailer....ummm...Silver Creek? Sorry, senior moment!

I would definitely shop for more hip.
