    I have an 8mo ASHS full stud book red filly who will be 16.2h

    We also have a top shelf rising 2yo warmblood filly who will be 16.2 / 3, who will be put in foal to the same 16.2 /3 full stud book stallion when she's 4yo, and produce a first cross ASH, with full competition rights and opportunities.

    We have 2 x mares to go in foal this year who will both produce > 16h. Whether we keep the fillies or not will depend on their quality - only the best fillies will be retained for breeding and will need to replace a quality mare if they do. All colts will be sold.

    The ASHS people are certainly considering height along with their desire to be the "breed for every need", to fulfill performance criteria. I think there will be some much taller ones come through over the next couple of years, and this will support breed diversity.

    Well you have given me food for thought, is there a market for taller ASH, my boy is 15.3hh, I was looking at a couple of 15hh ASH mares, but have a couple of TB's mares 16.2 & 16.3hh might go with them.Thinking thinking
    A horse is not only for a good time its for a long time
