Great Online Discussion
What Choices Most Improved Your Breeding Program?
That was the question recently posted on Facebook by breeder Kendra Hansis. The thoughtful answers deserved a wider audience, so the conversation was collated and posted to the Warmblood Stallions of North America Breeder News Blog.

Silver Twist Excels With "Problem" Mares
Silver Twist Progeny

While his offspring continue to impress, Silver Twist now occupies a niche for mare owners: he's gained a reputation for successful pregnancies in mares that have failed to get in foal by other means.

Silver Twist's offspring share the beauty and talent of Olympic medallist Abdullah with the game competitiveness, savvy, and love for jumping found in the Twist horses.

Shown is a 9-year-old gelding by Silver Twist out of a Hanoverian mare.

Foundation Fridays
Recent Foundation Sires Featured on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com
We started a new feature on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com in 2018: Foundation Fridays! Every other Friday we will be featuring a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. Since our last email newsletter, we have added a few new stallions. With most of these articles, we'll be pulling from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazine , published by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

In each of these articles, we introduce a Foundation Sire, and we also include links to stallions with each of these bloodlines who are on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com .

Good News for Breeders
Meet Faro SQF's Breeder on The Chronicle
As we reported in an  article earlier this month , the 2019 Pan American Games US Teams include three horses bred in the US. There are two on the Eventing Team and one on the Dressage Team. Recently, the  Chronicle of the Horse  published an article about Faro SQF, an 11-year-old gelding on the US Dressage Team. The focus was on his breeder, Jill Peterson of Star Quarry Farm in Florida.

It is delightful, not only to see US-bred horses competing internationally, but to see them recognized in the news, and to see their breeders acknowledged. Congratulations to Jill Peterson!

US-Bred Filly Bought by USA Dressage Team Supporter

In other good news, sport horse breeding in the US has just been given an important boost with the purchase of Starlight H2O by Betsy Juliano, who has supported US dressage in major ways. Starlight H2O was bred by Kendra Hansis of Runningwater Warmbloods in New Jersey. She is by St. Schufro x Negro.
