Torpenhow Dyna Mo jumping again

Mo has been out and about jumping again, she really is photogenic. She is such a handsome lady. Her foal Tina has been playing today as usual, she already thinks she’s a star.

The State of British Breeding

I’m getting increasingly concerned about the state of British Horse Breeding, as a country we have to face it we have made a real mess of things by not having adequate controls in place. Anyone can breed a horse from any mare, colt or stallion that they chose. Currently you have to have paper work for your horse, but it is still relatively easy to obtain a passport regardless of the parentage of your horse.

Last week in the Horse and Hound magazine there seemed to be hundreds of stallions adverts, hopefully that was just my perception and it was only a few dozen, but it is still worrying. Many of the stallions now advertised seem to be of good established and proven bloodlines, but many were young unproven animals. Obviously you have to start somewhere but it just shows people are planning to breed more horses in the UK . The owners have bothered to buy/breed themselves stallions with decent bloodlines. My issue is not with people doing this, after all I have been breeding horses myself now for over 10 years, but the issue is where is the market that they are breeding for?

Horse riders still seem to be looking abroad first rather than looking in the UK , why is this, there are some very good animals coming through in the UK having been bred here. It is that difficult to find a decent British Bred horse? Personally I don’t think it is that difficult, all you need is the right contacts and you should be able to find any number of animals that will fit the bill. Maybe it’s not as glamorous as being able to say I bought this in Holland , Germany or the like, but I bet it will work out cheaper and you’ll be far more likely to be buying a better animal, not the usual continental rejects that seem to be all too common.

If your looking to buy a horse why not give us a call and if we don’t have anything suitable we may be able to give you other contacts that can help.

We’ve just been to watch Mo jump at Field House in Staffordshire, looks like she’s getting the hang of this jumping stuff. She’s still finding it difficult to get her balance being such a big lady. Hopefully she’ll find the outdoors much easier to handle as she will have much more space.

Nearly time to turn them out.

Its spring and it will soon be time to turn them out for the summer, it’ll be a little late this year as the grass has not yet really started to grow, but hopefully soon there will be enough covering for us to turn them out.

Torpenhow Daydream 16hh, In foal Chesnut Mare 5 year old

Torpenhow DaydreamLightly backed and put in foal, as no rider. Very successfully dam line. Half sister to Emma Shaws It’ll be me.

In foal (due May/June 2010) to Furst Romancier Who at the 70 day test ( Oldenburg ) received in all three basic gaits the top mark of 9.0 – walk, trot and canter! His rideability was highly praised – expressed in numbers this means he was awarded a 9.0 and 9.5 out of 10

Furst Romancier stood out from the crowd with his movements swinging through his entire body, developing the highest degree of impulsion and elasticity. A dressage stallion in a class of his own! Sire Furst Heinrich was himself crowned World Champion as a five year old in 2003. With an above average breeding index of 160 points he is ranked as one of the leading dressage sires in the German Federation’s breeding evaluation. The dam’s sire Romancier adds – as the half brother to Rubinstein – the precious Rosenkavalier into the equation. Furst Romancier descends from one of the most successfulOldenburg mare lines: the Edoste. Numerous licensed stallions emerged from this line such as the National Champion and European championship participant Exupery as well as reserve national champion Landjuwel Gold, the Olympic horse Petit Prince, Grand Prix winner Avignon in addition to numerous advanced dressage horses. Conclusion: A stallion gifted with all it needs to become a top-class producer.

Make an excellent foundation mare for any stud, or could be produced herself for any discipline.

Her dam has produced very successful dressage horses, show jumpers and an eventer.

Open to sensible offers.

Torpenhow Daydream Pedigree

 

Torpenhow Destiny Stunning Bay Yearling Filly by Daddy Cool

 To make 16.2hh. Awarded a premium at the Oldenburg grading. Sire Daddy Cool, son of the approval and stallion performance test champion Don Davidoff, who caused furore when he became World Champion and German Young Dressage Horse Champion. Daddy Cool has a highly interesting pedigree with the beautiful, performance-bred Holsteiner Calido and Sandro Hit’s grandsire Sandro. He is now in training with Isabell Werth starting his international career. His dam’s lineage, from which amongst many others the top producer Balou du Rouet came, is one of the best the Lewitz stud has to offer. Daddy Cool has more than proved his worth by winning the Oldenburger County Championships and qualifying for the national young horse championships. Numerous victories in the riding horse and dressage classes confirm his talent. Daddy Cool is remarkably talented not only as a dressage horse but also an outstanding jumper, at his 30 day test he was awarded with the top scores in both disciplines.His first crop of foals are beautiful models with active, rhythmical movements. He produced Daddy´s Girl, the filly was the most expensive foal at the AOS Auction (€ 32,000).

Fuerstenreich has been extremely successful in dressage with Emma Hindle

Torpenhow Dyna Mo has shown considerable talent as a Show Jumper, but due to her size was put in foal, to give her an extra year to mature. She is now back in work and can be seen with Derek Morton in Staffordshire.
