Yeager has been bred to a wide variety of mares & thus we feel confident making the assessment that he truly stamps his offspring. Specifically, he tends to add height (especially to his male offspring), a fantastic temperament, rideability & a great canter.
“Yves” was bred and is owned by Yeager’s rider Suzie, and is out of her former junior jumper TB mare Penny. As a foal, Yves was presented to RPSI and was awarded a Silver Premium distinction. He also scored an impressive 7.8 for movement for a half Thoroughbred colt. As a two year-old, Yves showed in hand and won his first FEH class. The judges noted in particular his elegant and modern build and his correct and rhythmical gaits.
Now as a coming 5 years old, Yves is proving to be everything that he was destined to be and clearly shows talent and capability for upper level eventing. This year he will be participating in the very competitive 5yo YEH program. Suzie has started and brought along Yves herself. Kathleen Raine was comlimentary of Yves’ trainability and ability to step up to new challenges. Bea di Grazia, an L dressage judge,YEH judge and talent spotter for the United States Equestrian Team called Yves “very talented” and now helps Suzie and Yves progress in the world of eventing.
