    Clarksdale, MS--the golden buckle on the cotton belt


    If he's frozen for the US market, I'd seriously consider William Micklem's Jackaroo. Full brother to two 4*/Olympic horses; and William wouldn't stand him if he didn't think he would pass on the traits that 4* horses need. Jackaroo was injured young in a pasture accident, so he could not compete. He's well over 75% percent TB, son of Master Imp with Chair Lift as damsire; and ought to do very well on TB mares. If there is anyone with the eye, experience, and knowledge to find and produce event horses, it's William. The fact that he thinks Jackaroo has what it takes says a tremendous amount, even though he bred him.

    I haven't read all the comments so hopefully I'm not repeating anyone.

    A Fine Romance (I want to breed to this horse so, so bad!)
    Nothing wrong with keeping a pure TB

    I just wanted to add that I really like Hanoverian/TB crosses. (although none of these are Hanoverians... lol)
    Both of my Event horses have been half Hanoverians and they are both amazing! They both have incredible movement and a mind to jump!

    Have you looked into A Fine Romance? He seems to be everything you are looking for. Talent looks, good movement and a total ammie friendly mind.

    And, the advantage of being a TB cannot be discounted. That way the foal will be a TB and will be a more attractive horse to other people than a TB/Draft cross.

    Remember, even though you are planning this mating for yourself, the day may come when you need to sell, for whatever reason. You need to think of the marketability of your foal, should that event occur. A TB/Draft or a TB/Connemara will not be as marketable as a foal by A Fine Romance. (IMO, Of course!)

    I think it really depends on who you pair your tb mare with if a pony breed....certainly if you use a Connemara with intermediate experience like Ard Celtic Art, that offspring would have good value if the mare is also nice

    You might look at Glendevon's Mountain Man. He's Clyde/TB and throws beautiful babies when bred to TB mares.

    I bred one of my TB mares to an RIDSH stallion named King's Ransom and I got a really nice 2012 foal. King's Ransom is located in BC Canada. He is 1/2 TB 1/2 ID. His owner, Kitty Tougas is amazing to deal with and I am rebreeding 2 mares back to him in 2013. He's a lovely stallion, but unfortunetely at this point, he doesnt have many offspring on the ground. Here is the link to her webpage as well as a video of my colt at 3.5months old.
