The Horse Breeding Method
We consider how the horse was brought up or the horse breeding method. The goal of every horse breeder is to produce a genetically superior horse. Numerous environmental conditions affect a horse. The conditions include nutrition, training, healthcare, and injuries. Proper horse breeding doesn’t just involve selecting superior horses for breeding but also managing the environmental conditions.
We prefer to buy horses from breeders who understand basic genetic principles and the application of these principles to a successful horse business. The rule of thumb in horse breeding is to produce three to four foals from every mare. The mare should then be replaced with her best filly. If a mare does not produce or produces low-quality colts, it should be eliminated from the breeding herd. If you select a filly to replace a mare, you must also replace the stallion.
