Brabant horse please

Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I am obsessed with the Brabant horse breed and want a baby badly- either a full blood or one out of my Spanish Norman. Does anyone know are they fast? Jumpers? They seem almost IMPOSSIBLE to get here in the United States.

Thanks

The place to start would be the American Brabant Association. There are about 20-30 breeders in the US and they produce 50-75 full and partbred foals a year. Brabants are short, stocky, heavy draft horses and would never make a jumper. They are bred to plow and move low and slow. A Spanish Norman would make a terrible jumper as well.

If you want a Brabant and can not find or afford a full blood, you should go with a smaller, broad, old style Belgian mare. Breed her to a Brabant stallion and you will end up with a foal that is recognized by the Association. Brabants fall under the Belgian Draft Horse Corporation.

If you want a draft horse but also to jump I would suggest looking into crosses, I do know some full shires and full percherons that are good at jumping low levels, but I agree the horses you listed would be a no go. . .

Gypsies love to jump and are many are good at it, but do not expect them to reach higher levels successfully. There is a person in Florida who breeds Brabants and also (so I hear) crosses Gypsies and Brabants.
