  1. Stallions and Broodmares
    What are in your opinion some of the best AQHA hunt seat studs? I love the look of a big hunt seat horse, but a lot of the big names in hunt seat come with a not so great mind. I am looking to find a really great minded hunt seat stud and I just wanted to see what some experiences with certain...

    I've got a stallion that absolutely HATES taking baths... Until the scrubbing comes into play. He's terrified of the hose and I just don't know why. I started out gentle, allowing him to explore the hose himself and get a few good experiences with it on his own. Then, still taking baby steps, I...
  3. Horse Breeding
    I am a large horse owner and new to miniature horses (also new to stallions!). We rescued a 6 year old miniature stallion about a month ago and this weekend we are bringing home a miniature filly (6 months old). I have two separate but adjoining pasture/pens for these two while they get to...

  5. Sport Horses
    Hi am about to start a F. Jadalco cross Riverman foal. I have heard that Riverman produces more difficult foals but was wondering if anyone has had experience with them and what they think. But, I am really interested to know if anyone has had expierence with the Dutch Jadalco stallion and his...

    Long time no post! And I may not even be posting in the correct spot :oops: Anyway, a family member on my hubby's side may be needing to find new homes for his horses. He used to opperate a sport horse breeding farm and now has 5 horses left. There are a few he does not want to part with...

  8. Stallions and Broodmares
    Hello! I've decided to breed my mare and i've been looking all over the place for stallions! I'm having a really hard time finding good hunter jumper stallions. I've found a few but other than that I cant seem to find any. Does anyone know of any good stallions that have a good hunter jumper...
  9. Stallions and Broodmares
    Im bery interested in to hear what breeders look for in a stallion. Im going to use this to choose future sires to cover my mares, also to determine whether or not j should cut my colt. Typically being in the barrel racing world, i look for disposition, conformation in the back and legs...

  11. Horse Training
    I have two stallions, Pepper and Cinnamon, Pepper is a very good natured horse, I can pet him brush him and put a halter on him. Cinnamon however, has a mind all his own! The most I can do with him is give him treats and hay, and that's when HE decides. I've had them for 4 years and he still...
  12. Horse Breeding
    A little rant. I have a 5 page list of known HERDA carriers. There are some top cutting/reining horse names on the list and I just wish that the AQHA would not allow stallions that are known carriers to be included in the stallion registry anymore. Carrier mares are bad enough, but the big time...
  13. Horse Training
    So, I'm going to be working on a farm soon (mucking stalls, feeding, turning out, etc) and all of the horses there are well-manered mares or geldings. The owner mentioned that they have a stallion as well, but that he is easy to handle too. Now, I've spent time around plenty of studs, all...

    The CWHBA Stallion Service Auction will be held, Sunday, March 20th. There is once again, an excellent selection of stallions from across Canada and some in the USA as well. Offspring from SSA stallions owned by CWHBA members are eligible for the foal futurity the year of their birth...
  15. Horse Boarding
    Hey guys. I dont allow boarders unless their horses are in training with us (which I guess makes our place a boarding facility in a way lol) We currently stand 5 studs. They have their own little 6 stall barn and are separated from where my clients horses are kept. My question is for those of...
  16. Horse Shows
    Ok, so after going to the APHA Fall Color Classic to gather information about showing our paint stallion, I found that there were NO stallions being shown (with the exception of a yearling). Can someone please explain why stallions are not being shown at shows? Is there any reason we should...
  17. Horse Breeding
    Hey everyone. I've been contemplating for a while now, whether to breed or not, but I've finally decided this is the way to go. I'm in love with Family Partners Welsh Ponies, and two of their studs. I would like a full critique on both boys, and which would be better for the outcome foal's...
  18. Horse Protection
    While randomly browsing, I came across yet another horrible type of abuse against animals: Stallion Fights. A mare in season is staked out in a ring while two stallions fight over her. Like cockfighting or dogfighting -- this is horrendous. Has anyone in this forum every encountered this? I...
