I have been an on and off player since 2006-2007. I was 9-10 years old. I have been playing on and off over the years and decided to make a return once again :) I have decided to breed Andalusians this time around. I am mostly posting because I am wondering what I should be doing to start my foundation Andalusian lines. Should I still wait until they are 5 years old to jump them? What are the current strats?
Please let me know :)

Welcome back, nice to see you and so excited to see your Andalusians!
Looks like you got them set up with items already which is great. If I was you, I'd put them all in co-training and make sure their max level is at least 10. Wait until they train up to level 10 or 11 and then start jumping them. You'll get much better performance that way :)
The biggest obstacle on your way to good performance will be registries. I have found that the registries are really important and will greatly affect jump heights. The ideal situation is to have each horse in five 5-star registries, but since there are none for Andalusians you have to get the stars up yourself. Registry stars are based on the ranks of the horses registered, and horse ranks are based on each horse's win:loss ratio. So you want lots of wins early on to get those registry stars up :)
One thing you could do now is breed them. I think in order to get the registries to 5 stars you need roughly 10-20 horses ranked in the top 1000 (that's a wild guess, I might be wrong but you get the idea). If you only have the foundies I think you might not have enough horses to get the registry stars up.
I'll bump a couple of helpful forum posts for you that might help explain better. And you are more than welcome to message me with additional questions!
