On The Point

Where the Journey Began

On the Point is my foundation mare and she is where the journey first began in 2010. I located On the Point at a rehab farm in northeastern Ohio. I was crazy about her from the moment I saw her! Despite being unraced, she was a big, strong mare who had all of the right parts in all the right places! She had great bone and scope. She had sass and giddy up and go.

She is very intelligent and independent and it is these traits that she passes along to each of her offspring. I suppose a part of me wanted to see if I could apply some dog breeding concepts that I had learned from a friend who bred champion German Shepherds to horse breeding. Albeit, they are very different, but the one premise that holds true for both is start with a big, strong, scopey female. I also learned that the temperament of the female is crucial and passed on to her offspring.
