    Bottom line is none of the registries care one bit about you or your horse, it's your money they want.



    If the way you come across here is any indication of the way you behave in "real life" I...

    I seriously can't imagine expecting people to go way above and beyond and spend all sorts of $$$ simply because I would like to have them at my wedding. People get married and I swear they go nuts...

    I am not trying to "fight" about anything. It was said that main book mares are all of pretty much the same quality regardless of registry. Sorry, but that just isn't true.

    I agree there are...

    Look. You can point to things you like and dislike with just about every registry. For example, I CAN get a foal registered with AHS who is NOT inspected. Even get them branded. No, they are not...

    Honestly....what I've seen of all the registries, including OLD NA...is about the same. The quality of what is getting approved into the main books and the scores are all comparable. That was my...

    He himself is very modern in type (almost TB looking) and doesn't really have a stallion look or strong presence to him just standing in his stall. He produces very modern, long legged types and is...

    The failure here is that although this was a nice horse the US sold in Europe, the rider pushed the horse hard because of the young horse tests and he will now have to be manhandled into submission...

    BITS I agree with you. No stallion is right for every mare, no matter how well he produces.

    It's better for a rider to limit the horse going up than it is for the horse to limit the rider from...

    The reality is that there will always be disagreements between top breeders and riders about all stallions. People have preferences. That doesn't mean a stallion isn't worth breeding to (at least in...

    Weak and slow not the same things. A horse can be somewhat slow behind and still be super strong and well conformed. To top it off, the OP isn't looking to produce an upper level horse , she is...

    I think in this case the best thing to do is to look for a stallion that has successfully competed at the advanced level and one that produces similar horses as then you are guaranteed that that...

    I am not a jumper rider or breeder but saw Connor Swail riding an amazing little mare in a 1.40 m class on Saturday called Arista. She looks tiny but so fast. Gave me goosebumps watching her go!

    A good suggestion for you would be Quidam Blue who is owned by Equitop farm in Alberta and Jill Henselwood. I have spent some time around him and can say with certainty that he is a lovely boy, very...

    I love what Floriscount is producing. I have tried him a number of times without success. This year I bred him to one of my favourite riding horses and despite the semen looking terrible, it actually...

    Stoic, I agree on much of what you say....especially with using the stallions. To breed a horse that is both talented and truly easy to ride you need to really be selective...you are for sure taking...
