This page contains a Flash digital edition of a book.
Required Reading: The article, "Valiant's Blind Trust" in the March/April issue, should be required reading for not only all horse owners but for anyone dealing with people. The partnership between Valiant and Jeanette is clearly one that works. Obviously, Valiant is a very special horse but he would have been put down by a less committed owner. Jeanette's com- ments on what the German trainer had to say and the vet said after the accident reminded me of Charlie Howard's comment on Seabiscuit (in the movie of the same name) when he said, "They say Seabiscuit is too small, my jockey is too big, my trainer is too old...and I'm too dumb to know it." Another quote from Seabiscuit's trainer says a lot too, "Something beauti- ful shouldn't be thrown away just because it is a little broken." What magnificent ignorance! There is a special place in heaven for people like Jeanette...and a very special place for horses like Valiant. Keep up the great work on Warmbloods Today.

Fans of WT: I love this

magazine. Best money I have spent on a subscrip- tion and we definitely want to advertise our stallion in your maga- zine. I have told quite a few people about the magazine and hope that they will order online subscriptions with you. Thanks so much for producing such an awesome magazine. I

had it completely read from cover to cover in two days and I’m still "dog earing" it!!

I have received my premier issue of Warmbloods Today. On the first glance through, I decided it would be a magazine I will be subscribing to as long as possi- ble. The variety of topics is what impressed me most. As you well know, there is everything from novel

slants on the usual sports such as dressage and jump- ing. But you also included driving, inspirational arti- cles, importation and more. The standard features of conformation, breeder’s and buyer’s points of view etc. are also very informative and entertaining. Kudos to you! Even the advertising is enjoyable!! Who can’t spend hours looking at those amazing stallions and those “full of promise” foals?!

I wish you a long and successful endeavour. Keep them coming!

I just wanted to say good thinking! One of my ambi- tions after college is to be a Sport Horse breeder and with this magazine full of different stallions and other barns around the U.S. and then some, I can keep up with what’s happening in the Sport Horse and Warmblood world. Whatever I can do to keep this magazine going for decades just let me know!

Unfamiliar Breed: I noticed the advertisement of the breed “Sachsen-Thüringen,” and I have never heard of this breed before. I was wondering if you could tell us more about it?

Kathy Eichholz, Charlemont, MA

The name Sachsen-Thüringen refers to the region of Germany where this particular race of Warmbloods are bred. Similar to the horse breeders’ association of Brandenburg-Anhalt, the breeders of Sachsen- Thüringen have recently decided to combine their horse populations into a single large one. Together they are implementing a joint breeding program for riding horses under the designation “German Sport Horse.”

A base of approximately 6,000 mares forms the foundation for a modern breeding program that also includes only those stallions from Holstein, Hanover, Westphalia and other European countries that meet the highest standards. In addition to producing high- quality sport horses for all disciplines, the German Sport Horse breeders aim to produce horses with cor- rect conformation, excellent dispositions and a high level of rideability.
