devil you know than the devil you don’t"!
That is Kyra’s motto
when it comes to breeding and that is why almost all her
young horses have dressage stallions she has been riding
in their pedigree. She is a great believer in "performance
tested" breeding. If the stallion has been showing
in, preferable international Grand Prix himself, he has
shown, that he has the right conformation and soundness
to be trained and learn everything for Grand Prix. He has
also shown, that he has the right temperament to cope with
the stress of travelling and competing in new environments.
