Everyone makes breeding hard. It’s really not that difficult. I live by a few rules in my breeding program. Here are some my recipes for success.
Always breed to natural movers. Your mare should move naturally, be deep in the hocks, and have a flat knee. Many horses today are man made. What is a man made horse? These are horses forced to move in an unnatural ways. You will only get random and or inconsistent success in the show ring with a man made horse.
Here is one example, of what I see time and time again – when a mare does not do well in the show ring they bring the horse home to be a broodmare. Now you’re adding your not-so-good performer to your breeding program. Your chances of getting a winning combination has just lowered substantially. Instead, breed your very best natural mover to a stallion who is a natural mover. -Shorty
What impresses Shorty about The Invitation is that he has natural movement, along with a balanced temperament, versatility, and the correct conformation to be great. Shorty believes he will be one of the great ones.
Shorty has done, seen, and accomplished more than most will ever do in the equine industry, and he is still doing it! Contact Shorty Today for a consultation to get your natural mover to The Invitation. To honor the advice of one of the best in the industry, special pricing considerations will be given to natural moving mares.
