3 Foot+ Hunter Competitor
50 Mile Endurance Competitor
Breeding Sound at age 21
Max has been a stallion on my radar since 2001 and I've been thrilled with the chance to use him in his twilight years. This is a kind and stunning stallion and has produced many foals that are competing in eventing, hunters, dressage, and endurance. He has crossed on warmbloods, draft crosses, thoroughbreds, stock horses, and so on and his foals are consistently known for being easy to train, great movers, and sound sound sound! It's hard to find such a nice sporthorse stallion with a pedigree like his!

If you're looking for a thoroughbred that is bred to perform in sports other than racing, this is your foal! If you're tired of getting something that's been used up off the track and want a fresh slate, you won't find better! We are super excited to announce that we have bred Tanisteara's Crown to Man In Motion for a 2018 foal due XXXX, 2018. If you're a pedigree junky, this is your performance pedigree. Glitter Please, Fappiano, Bold Ruler, Raja Baba, Riva Ridge, and a minimization of the common racing lines (Northern Dancer, Storm Cat, etc).
We bred our adorable and gutsy APHA mare, In Sharp Relief, to this stallion for a 2015 foal and loved what we got! Born practically broke, he was his dam's height (14+ hands) at 6 months of age. A very thoughtful and willing foal that was a pleasure to raise.
If you're unfamiliar with these lines, here's some more information to get you excited:
Glitter Please - FEI level dressage thoroughbred competitor. One of two main producers of popular dilute thoroughbreds in America today. Produces kind, tractable offspring that are willing and easy to train. INFO
Fappiano - A top USEF producing eventing sire from 2002-2006 (as well as many sons topping the same list in his wake), Fappiano is well known for producing exceptional eventers with solid trainable brains and a sound durable body.
Bold Ruler - Bold Ruler will be in many pedigrees due to his racing popularity, but it is worth noting the amount of upper level horses that feature his name up close in their pedigrees. At the 2014 Rolex alone, the following horses competed: 4* Rolex horse Sir Rockstar, 4* Rolex horse Pirate, 4* Rolex horse Shiraz, 4* Rolex horse Expedience, 4* Rolex horse Enchantez, 4*Rolex horse (at 18 years of age!) Ziggy, 4* Rolex horse Collection Pass, 4* Rolex horse Mensa G INFO Denny Emerson's thoughts on Bold Ruler
Raja Baba - Notorious sire of many upper level event horses from the 1990s, most recently 4* mount of Bunnie Sexton's horse Rise Against (Rolex 2017). Raja Baba is his grandsire. INFO
Riva Ridge - Grandson of Turn-to. Turn to is found in top eventing horse pedigrees such as 4* and Olympic horse Black Foot Mystery (ridden by Boyd Martin). Riva Ridge is prominent in another 4* and Olympic team horse, Lochlan Glen (ISH ridden by Clark Montgomery), 4* Rolex horse Expedience among others. INFO
