As a rider or breeder, you can take a sneak peek into the pedigrees of the world’s best young horses at the YH championships and see which bloodlines complement each other the best! Many bloodlines are represented, each contributing with specific characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses.

For breeders, an overview of the characteristics a particular stallion passes on to its offspring can greatly benefit their breeding program. An insight into the best young horses in the world provides an understanding of the bloodline combinations that make sense for specific mare lines. If your mare lines tend to produce long horses with large frames and big, slow movements, you might consider complementing them with a stallion line known for shorter toplines and a quick mechanic.

As a rider, you may be more interested in finding your next competition horse – and here, the rideability characteristics come into play!

There are many ways to use the YH championship start lists and results. For everyone interested in the modern sport horse – both for riding and breeding – they can be beneficial.

For us, it is particularly interesting to see the offspring and descendants of Blue Hors Zack, Blue Hors Don Olymbrio, Blue Hors St. Schufro, Blue Hors Don Schufro, and Blue Hors Romanov at an event like the YH championships. Many of these offspring are known to us from previous years, such as last year’s 5-year-old champion, Lyngbjergs St. Paris, sired by St. Schufro, and we can now, for another year, follow their positive development! Others we meet for the first time and get to see them compete at the highest level.
