Hi,
Does anyone know any offspring from The Traveller who are eventing?
Does he produce talent with a good temperament ?
What about speed and stamina?
Info would be greatly appreciated - am going to look at one for sale, and would love a bit of background before I go, as this would not be a cheap buy!!

We had the most fabulous young horse that was by The Traveller, only did one BYEH qualifier as a 4yo before he was sold but was very trainable, really genuine with a fantastic jump. Dont know if he went onto event, we called him Travelex and havent seen anything eventing under that name but always sad he went!

We had a nice horse by The Traveller, although he was rather lacking in paperwork to back this up. He was lovely with a superb temperament. Sadly he suffered from lameness problems so never developed to his true potential

No proper pics on this computer so this is his face!

Thanks SW123 - Was yours coloured? How old would it be now? This one is Skewbald.

Joss - thanks for your reply also. Looks very like yours! What was the lameness due to? Was it conformation related?

As the stallion is a Middle to Heavyweight warmblood (I think), do either of you think yours would have had the speed and stamina to up the grades?

My coloured boy is a grandson of The Traveller. He is chestnut and white and is the most genuine horse i have ever come across. I have had him since he was just broken at 4 and he has never said NO to anything i have asked of him.
He is 11 now and had a couple of years off with foot problems. (He had degenerative deep flexor tendons in his front feet!) He is now eventing at intro level and loving every minute of it.

What on earth are degenerative deep flexor tendons on front feet?!!!!!!!!!!! Is it a hereditory problem, or just bad luck? How did you treat them?

Good luck with the eventing!

I have just bought a 5 year old out of a mare by 'The Traveller'. He is a really useful sensible sort who I am really excited about playing with over this season...he is a cheeky chappie but I really like the can do attitude he has shown so far.....we have some greeness issues to iron out but I am very pleased with what I have seen so far. :).

The Traveller died from complications after a colic operation some years ago but I don't know if they still have any frozen semen from him.

There used to be a coloured mare on the yard I keep my horse by The Traveller. She could be sharp but has gone on to do very well at BE100 and Novice level. Currently out competing now, if you'd like her BE name PM me (I'm always funny about writing it publicly if I don't own the horse, which I know is daft really!).

I realize this is a bit late, but I have a horse out of the Traveler. He was imported to the US in ~2005. I know everyone says they have a one of a kind horse - but he really is. He has wonderful ground manners, very willing, outgoing never says no and is a genuine ham. (I call him my oversized dog and he is everyone's favorite horse at the barn.) I have evented him through Preliminary (US) and he thrives on XC, flashy dressage - always top 3. Overall a really, really special horse -
