"Marketing is Enthusiasm Transferred ..."

I LOVE this! "Marketing is enthusiasm transferred to the customer." -Gregory Ciotti. Because in my world, it's true. Marketing within the sport horse breeding community is most of what I do. I help stallion owners market their stallions; I design websites, ads, and other marketing pieces; and of course I market my own services. And this is a really great definition of what I do, what stallion owners do, and why we do it. more


Old Data and New Research On Gestation Length

A recent article in the Kentucky Equine Research Equinews library of articles points out new research on what the "normal" length of gestation is for mares - but mares are not known for reading the same book you did. The point of the article is that our expectation of normal - 340 days - was determined over 50 years ago - and only with Thoroughbreds in northern European countries. But pregnancy lengths are different all the time, even for the same mare bred to the same stallion with other obvious factors the same. more

Modern, Athletic Trakehner Eventing/Dressage Stallion
Performance matters. Tatendrang *Pb* is competing at the FEI CCI** level with Andrew Palmer in Eventing. He is typically in the top half of any competition after dressage where he frequently earns 8’s and 9’s for his gaits. Due to his performance career, “Tate” is fully licensed/approved with the American Trakehner Association, Trakehner Verband, ISR/OLD NA, as well as Stud Book sBs Belgian Sport Horse.

Winner of the ATA’s 2013 Cäsar Memorial Cup, for the ATA approved Trakehner stallion with the year’s highest score in Eventing, Tate started 2014 off convincingly, by winning the Red Hills International CIC*, leading from the first and finishing on his dressage score of 36.2, the best dressage score of all divisions. He moved on to take 3rd place in his first CIC** at Chattahoochee Hills and completed his first CCI** on the grueling Bromont course in Canada, where he was 5th after dressage in a field of 24. In the autumn, rider and horse were declared to be “brilliant” by George Morris in a clinic shortly before they completed the Fair Hill CCI** that opened with 114 competitors at that level and, with a dressage score of 31.90, he wrapped up the year in the Open Intermediate division at the Poplar Place Horse Trials in November, winning it by 16 pts! 2015 was a year to focus on training, breedings, and approvals; however, he did come in 2nd in his only outing at Chatt Hills in July with a convincing double clear cross country.

Tate passes on not only his appearance, spectacular movement and remarkably kind temperament, but his drive to succeed. His oldest offspring turned 5 in 2015 and all have been remarkably easy to start under saddle and show Tate’s own fantastic work ethic. Tate is homozygous bay/black. His offspring are competing successfully in hunters, dressage, and of course eventing and are becoming sought after by several upper level riders.
