TesioPower's 550,000 Sporthorse database has been compiled from worldwide sources over the last 10 years. It has an extensive list of stallions from around the world with their pedigrees extended to earliest times. The database also includes the pedigrees of top competition horses in dressage, eventing and showjumping from around the world as well as horses sold at many major sales.

An important feature is that you can add your own information. Using our Multiple Data view, new pedigrees are easily added in a 'fill-in-the-blanks' approach. The information you add becomes a part of your database, able to be used by any part of TesioPower.

TesioPower includes the horses that have a World Breeding Federation Sport Horse Ranking and also the National Breeding Indexes for the major Breed Societies.

TesioPower has an extensive database of Competition results, Winnings and Rankings both national and international for Sporthorses and stallions.

TesioPower allows you to view the horses by their Competition Level Achieved. Find out just how good a stallion really is. Is he better at producing Showjumpers or Dressage horses or Eventers? Get a list of his offspring and look at their "Competition Level Achieved" listing.

TesioPower displays clear and easy to read pedigrees in 6 and 7 generation formats. Pedigrees can be printed or saved as HTML and PDF files.

TesioPower allows you to see the results of mating that you are considering. After entering the prospective sire and dam names, TesioPower allows you to research the pedigree just as if it were any other horse.

TesioPower The X Factor feature is a very powerful feature that will display horses identified with the Large Heart Gene as identified by Marianna Haun, the author of the X Factor series of books.

TesioPower can show the female or male line of any horse. Some records go back to the foundations of the breed in the 1600's. In addition the Female Sporthorse family numbers are included.

TesioPower prints beautifully formatted six and seven generation pedigrees to a single sheet of Letter or A4 sized paper. The pedigrees are clear and include color coded linebreeding. Pedigrees can also be saved as HTML files for websites, PDF files to email or formatted as Microsoft Word documents.

TesioPower comes complete with photographs very kindly supplied by Peter Llewellyn of HorseSource for many of the horses in the database. It is very easy to add your own photographs. You can add up to four photographs per horse.

TesioPower calculates the percentage of thoroughbred blood in every horse and also the Inbreeding Coefficient in the pedigree.

TesioPower's Explore Tree View feature allows you to follow stallion and mare lines forward from the foundation stallion or taproot mare. The Explore button acts in reverse to a pedigree. A pedigree is a view back in time to a horse's ancestors; the Explore button is a view forward to its descendants.

TesioPower has a list of the most influential horses in the breed. The Key Names feature prints a list of these influences and the comments about them so the highlights of the pedigree can be identified. Key Names are ones you should try to have duplicated in your pedigrees. Analysis of successful pedigrees has shown that these names are a recurring theme. TesioPower's pedigree charts highlight the duplicated ancestors in the pedigree, so it is easy to identify which of the Key Names are truly duplicated, or line-bred, in your pedigree.

TesioPower can research pedigree from 4 to 20 generations, although between 6 and 12 is most common. After researching the pedigree, TesioPower can display the results in a number of useful formats.

TesioPower's Equivalents feature allows you to find horses in the pedigrees who are related, but where that relationship is not immediately obvious. Equivalent horses are those that share two common ancestors in four generations and who have a minimum of 50% common blood. These setting can be changed.

TesioPower can compare your mares' pedigree to its list of stallions, showing them in descending order of line-breeding potential. Not all horses in the list will suit your requirements, but this useful routine does save a lot of time in checking pedigrees one-by-one. A handy feature is that you can double-click on a sire's name in this list and see a mating of the sire and your mare.

TesioPower can compare your mare's pedigree to a list of stallions, and show you a list of those matings that would have female inbreeding. This characteristic is popularly known as the 'Rasmussen Factor' (RF) and is the subject of a well received book, 'Inbreeding to Superior Females'.

TesioPower's Profile View Report is ideal for instant Stallion Stud Cards or Horse Sale details. It lists all the details from the main screen. Photograph, main screen details, pedigree, notes and comments all listed together. Great for sharing information.

TesioPower allows you to share data easily with other TesioPower users. You can export complete pedigrees of a horse, data from Pedigree Researches, lists of offspring etc. You can also export all data added or updated in your database since a nominated date.
