ALEXANDER PARK TRAKEHNER HORSES
Avon Valley, West Australia
Stud Principal: Sharon Haddock
Alexander Park is situated in the beautiful Avon Valley in Western Australia and is dedicated to breeding Trakehner horses. It was established in 1977.
Our breeding goal and program is based on the tried and proven methods of Tesio. We have adopted and adjusted these breeding steps to fit our sport horse goals:
1. Learn the pedigree (it is your horse's genetic map)- so that you can understand the genetic strengths your horse possesses.
2. Have a breeding goal and determine which bloodlines will help you get there.
3. Linebreed- by finding a mate who will multiply the lines of superior ancestors in your horse.
4. Sex balance those lines- find a mate with the daughters and sisters of your good male lines, or the brothers and sons of your female lines.
5. Reinforce the bloodlines by engaging the background strength of the pedigree.
6. Bring in siblings- full if possible, or 7/8, 3/4, 5/8 or 1/2. Statistics show that full or 3/4 siblings send the genetics into high gear.
7. Repeat the breeding- to insure the best sport horse outcome in one of your foals.
Youngstock sometimes available.
