Kelley Benham November 30, 2007 Genetic correlations between performance traits and radiographic findings in the limbs of German Warmblood riding horses K. F. Stock 1 and O. Distl Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics, University of Veterinary Medicine, Hannover (Foundation), Hannover, Germany This paper looked to see if the way warmblood horses were bred for performance affected their limbs and joints. Results of mare performance tests in the field of 10,949 mares, mare performance tests at station of 1,712 mares, and inspections of horses intended for sale at riding horse auctions of 4,772 horses were used to investigate genetic correlations between corresponding performance traits. Data included information on 12,661 performance-tested mares that were born in 1992 or later. Of these mares, 10,949 had completed their performance tests in the course of 1-d events in the field. Only 1,712 mares had participated in stationary performance tests, consisting of 18 d of standardized training and a final
