Carl Hester's Ride: "Best-Bred" U-Genius

Breeders in England face many of the same issues as North American breeders: it's a struggle to get recognized, when competitors assume horses bred on the continent are automatically better. That's starting to change, as the British do very well in competition on British-bred horses.

Horse & Hound magazine recently ran a story featuring U-Genius, with the headline "Meet the stallion Carl Hester deems the best-bred horse in the world." U-Genius was bred by Carl and Claire Hester, so he should know! And it's hard to argue with this: Sire: Carl's own Olympic ride Uthopia; Dam: Weidyfleur II - full sister to the incredible Valegro.
