    Default Noteworthy. 17hh Bay Dutch Warmblood Approved GOV & ISR/Oldenburg NA.

    Anyone used this stallion? Came across him recently and looking for extra insight.

    Too heavy to use on a less refined mare?

    Primarily seen as a dressage stallion? Seemed to score well at his 100 day stallion test on all fronts. Possible eventing sire?

    Would love to see pics of older offspring if anyone has any!

    I have seen the stallion in person. Lovely uphill build with a nice neck, short coupled. He can be used on a variety of mares. I have seen a three year old out of a belgian mare (draft cross) and he was a very nice horse. More refined than the mare. Nice temperament. Very correct. Shorter coupled than the mare. I did not get to see him move. His owner Jayme has some video of his get under saddle. The stallion himself has a lovely canter and temperament.

    Noteworthy is a lovely stallion who can be crossed with heavier mares and still through a relatively modern type. I wouldn't breed him to a short necked mare but I would be very interested in seeing him crossed with a TB mare. He's a nice stallion, good personality and interesting pedigree. Noteworthy's owner, Jay'me Stevens, is very accommodating.

    Well I talked to his owner and sounds like it might be a go for me! We shall see....!
    I found a really informative link on his particular line breeding and it had me intrigued. Let me see if I can cut and paste it here

    Interesting that he is deliberately line bred to Ramiro -- just be sure your mare doesn't have any close up to Ramiro, I would think.

    Or else you really like Ramiro and want to get as close to a "clone" as you can get =)

    I have many questions after reading this article. Having bred TB;s for several decades, I have learned a certain nomenclature which this man does not use the way I understand it.

    First, we only consider "inbred" to mean that the same horse shows up 2 or more times in the first 5 generations. The writer here goes back to the 7th generation looking for similar lines.

    He also calls horses with the same sire and related dams "3/4 siblings". In TB's 1/2 or 3/4 siblings are ONLY through the dam line. Since a stallion can have 150 foal in a year, the use of "1/2 or 3/4" bred is meaningless through the sire. Instead we say a horse is "from the same sire line, or "is by" a certain stallion.

    I really winced when the author spoke about inbreeding between two 3/4th brothers. Nooooooo. Especially if the common ancestor is a sire and is in the 6th generation.

    Can you imagine how much inbreeding and 1/2 or 3/4th relatives we would have if that term was applied to every descendant of Northern Dancer or Nearco?

    But, whatever the article says, Noteworthy is real eye candy. Lovely horse.

    Inbreeding is a fascinating subect, but I disagree with the evidence of it in Noteworthy. Closely bred, yes. Multiple lines of inbreeding? No

    I broke/trained a horse by Noteworthy.
    He had a spectacular buck during his early training. It only took one thrust. I'm talking--I would be on the ground before I even knew what happened and his lovely white socks would be dirty from his fetlock to his hock (which shows how far down he sat when he bucked).

    He was REALLY short backed. Lovely guy.
    here is his USEA record.

    he was not an ammy ride though he sold to an ammy.
