    Default Looking into the bloodlines of a horse

    What sites do people use to look up horses in a horses pedigree? I 'know' sire and dam and the sires of each, but once we get beyond that I am fairly clueless past googling the name. My horse is KWPN breeding and I'd like to know if he has jumping lines as well as dressage.

    You can try allbreeds pedigree but it is a bit like wikipedia. Subject to inaccuracy

    This one is much more accurate because it is harder to alter pedigrees. It is also smaller.

    Thanks Bats :-) I'm excited to find that there are some great horses in my boys background and also that he has a fair bit of jumping blood.

    Ours are all purebred Arabians, so we just go to the AHSA website, and look up the online stud book.

    I'm not sure of the right way to describe it - I really don't know that much about breeding. The mares sire has Variant on the sire side and Ramiro Z on the mares side. The mares dam was TB with Hyperion twice in her background and Nasrullah too. On the sires side there is Ulft, Bolero and one of the mares was a jumping mare - Libelle. I haven't been able to find much info apart from pedigree on the TBs or some of the mares.

    I've never been much concerned with his pedigree - I bought him for his temperament, which is excellent. The further I look into it though the more I read that his ancestors also had great temperaments. I'm mainly dressagey but want to do some jumping as well. He seemed initially to go "what? Jumping? Don't you know I'm a dressage horse?" but now is really enjoying it and I thought it would be fun to see what's in his background.
