A sports horse breeder shares her tips for the trade – and details the industry in North America — in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.
North American sport horses bring a little-known history with them: Just how long North Americans have been creating and enjoying true sports horses, and the untapped potential that exists in domestic breeds. Kathleen Hiney Kirsan presents breeders with a fresh way to evaluate equine genetics and build dominant candidates in her new reference book devoted to sports horses – whether they are bred for racing, dressage or other competitions. Although her principles focus on Olympic-style sport horses, they also apply to other horse breeding efforts.
“North American Sport Horse Breeder” serves as both historic record for sport horse breeding and as a practical guide. Kirsan is perhaps an unlikely heroine of the sport horse breeding industry because she only averages one foal per year. Her methods, however, have led to three national champions. The book’s first section describes the background of North America’s domestic sport horse industry, its history and successes. The second section provides a “how-to” of successful breeding choices, including the Tesio method, and the third section offers description of specific horses and their pedigrees, as well as their breeding value. This book, based on research and hands-on experience, helps identify key individuals with ancestries that can create winning sports horses.
