I like my Paint with all quarter horse breeding. There's an appy around here that runs 1D. I used to win the 3D all the time when I was 7 on my little 13 hand mutt pony, qualified for Youth World on him too. Stock breeds are best, but thoroughbreds can be pretty competitive too. Quarter Horses, Paints, Appaloosas. As for size, everybody would die if they came to one of my shows. The horses are giants, most are 16 hands or a little over. Not saying there aren't little horses, there is their all competitive. Everyone here just has the mindset of bigger is better.
