I’m looking to breed my TB mare this spring to produce and event horse for myself. I’ve done quite a bit of research and can’t decide which stallion to go with.
About my mare: 16hh, is short coupled, very straight legs, nice hock angle, and a slight up hill build. All three of her gaits are nice, as well as her jump. I’m looking to improve her but would be fine if I ended up with a horse of her ability (preliminary lvl), hopefully that makes sense. Temperament is important, don’t mind hot but don’t like nasty.
I like older TB types like AFR, who of course isn’t available.
Rather Well is still standing and I’ve heard nothing but good things about his progeny. But I’m not sure if he would cross well with my particular mare’s confirmation as he seems to be a bit downhill. As my mare is not super uphill I’m not sure how that would cross. Anyone know if he passes this on?
Lucarelli is also very intriguing as far as pedigree and conformation, but can’t find information on temperament.
If anyone has any info/input I’d love to hear it. Any other TB stallion suggestions are welcome.
