I have a wonderful 11 year old mare. I imported her 3 years ago from Belgium, where she had done the 1.35/1.40s age classes and she was supposed to be my first GP horse. Luck wasn’t on our side, and she had a freak injury and while I brought her back to doing the 1.20m and she even dabbled in hunter/eq successfully as well, I don’t think she’s going to hold up long term at the upper levels so I’m looking at breeding her next season.
She has the best brain, best personality, she’s sweet and cuddly with her people (although she’s all alpha mare with other horses), she’s easy to work with and has so much quality and scope (it breaks my heart that we won’t get to do the bigger sticks together). She is 16.3/17hh, has a big step, very careful over the fences, tidy front end, good hind end reflexes. One of my biggest things I DON’T like about her and would like to improve is her canter, it’s not super comfortable. And her rideability was a challenge, she was always a little stiff and rigid through her rib cage and took alot of dressage work to get her canter/rideability better.
Her bloodlines are 1.60m top to bottom… Nabab De Reve x Cabrio x Darco.
I’m interested in producing both jumper and hunter babies from her, any suggestions of who her baby daddy should be would be greatly appreciated!
