What Dreams are made of…

Ditto’s pedigree reads like The Who’s Who of Thoroughbred Jumper breeding in North America. He IS of those “lost and forgotten” lines that people such as Denny Emerson and William Micklem write. His sire, Triple Twist, crosses back to New Twist three times. A great jumper in his own right, New Twist, a son of Bonne Nuit, crosses back to the great dam, Bonne Cause, twice himself. Besides, Bonne Cause, Bonne Nuit, and New Twist, Ditto’s sire’s pedigree boasts names such as Good Twist, Wait A Bit, Tomboy aka Jane’s Bit, Good News Joe, Nasrullah… the list goes on. Ditto’s dam, Skipping Class, is by Orientate out of a Dynaformer mare. She has Turn-To twice (Best Turn and Hail to Reason), Blushing Groom, and Nasrullah among many others including the mare Galunpe in her damline. In fact, Skipping Class’s dam line is the perfect balance to Triple Twist’s sire line. It is as if she were made for him- a hundred years in the making- but for him. Her dam line is strong for jumping, strong for sport. It is no wonder that Ditto has produced so well out of a wide variety of mares. To read more on Ditto’s family, please follow this link:

We are pleased and proud to be able to offer these bloodlines and would happily breed Ditto to our own mares based on his pedigree alone but Ditto’s temperament is the icing on the cake. While he’s had only a handful of chances in his 8 years to experience the world outside of his home and/or covering mares, his innate temperament shines. From hacking around bareback with a halter and lead rope, to standing quietly for the farrier, to being a gentleman around mares, geldings, and other stallions, Ditto has quickly won our hearts. We can’t wait to get out into the world and see what this boy can do!
