Re: [RC] Proving Stallions (or mares for that matter) - Beth Walker

Sure - I understand that. However, this thread got started with a post about an Andalusian stallion that has never done endurance. Since Arabs are still the most prevalent breed in endurance, someone wanting to evaluate, say, the pedigree of a young non-Arab, or Arab- cross may not find any close relatives on the non-Arab side that competed in endurance.

My question was - what sort of accomplishments would you look for? And yes - I know it would be breed specific. For example, a TB stallion who threw progeny that made good foxhunters would probably be a good proxy. (Now -- finding out that information is a whole different question...)

Beth, the best "predictor" you have is a pedigree that is primarily made up of family lines that are proven in endurance, rather than looking for some "super sire."

Actually, many of us DO breed primarily for endurance, with no emphasis at all on racing or showing....
