What S-line stallions are available in the US? Thinking of breeding a tb mare to one for an event prospect. Mare is Sunny's Halo daughter. She is a nice big mover but could use some height. Otherwise excellent confo. She has always been bred live cover, so I assume that fresh is the best way to go with her? I am new to breeding AI. I will take her to a clinic for it to be done.
You might look at Soprano as he has a jumper dam line. I cannot think of another Sandro Hit son in this country that I would recommend to produce an eventer, personally.
If you would consider frozen, I would recommend Stedinger. His offspring can move and jump and his dam Fantasy Bold produced an international-level 3-day horse (and the Landadel in his damline consistently produces good jumpers). His frozen is excellent. I have always gotten pregnancies on one dose, even with a maiden in one instance.
OP, why are you focusing on "S" line? And do you mean Sandro line, or Stakkato/Spartan/Senator?
Also - how is your mare's temperament and rideability? Some of the Sandro line can be a bit tricky at times. That said, the Sandro Hit son Sure Hit has a son out with an eventing trainer who says he has been easy-peasy.
As an aside, I used to ride a Sunny's Halo gelding that belonged to a friend of mine. They did low level eventing - I did his gallops from time to time. Cool horse!
I second Soprano. I have one on the ground by him who is awesome and another on the way. Alain Seheut is absolutely wonderful to deal with (and has a lovely accent!) and I had no trouble with conception. I can't praise this stallion enough
