It is an exciting time for me, I have decided to breed one of my mares next year pending all goes to plan. Before anyone shoots into a tangent she is a proven mare, who is quality and worthy of breeding. Vet has already approved of her physically being bred recently and we forsee no issues that would be apparent at this stage, which is the very very early stage of picking a sire.
Mare is 16.2 Thoroughbred, all legs. A bit long in the back, not uphill, but a very very nice big mover with tones of scope and bravery. She is on the hotter end of the hot scale under saddle but easy to handle on the ground. She is healthy and has not been unsound in the nearly 8 years I have owned her.
The foal will be for me in the future for eventing. I am hopeful for something that could do 2*/3* eventually but it would have a forever home with me regardless. We are located in Ontario Canada. Height is not a concern because I am super short and have no issue riding small or large horses. I do want something that is equally or nice mover than the mare. A big safe jump and a nice gallop is ideal, but the mare also has a fabulous gallop.
Originally I was hoping to breed her to Upsilon but now with his illness he is obviously no longer breeding.
So far the stallions that are interesting me are:

Isselhook’s First Sight TSF https://www.rimondo.com/horse-details/1234905/Isselhooks-First-Sight-TSF
I also have interest in breeding to a straight Arab to have an Anglo, but I really have no clue where to start looking at Arab stallions.
Any other suggestions are welcome! I prefer a lot of blood so heavy warmbloods aren’t a big interest but I am open to hearing what other more experienced breeders think.
