It's true they are quite the lookers. If you look at Fehr's mare Calypso, she is a Clyde/QH cross and she is quite the looker. She has the frame of a clyde but is VERY leggy and quite elegant. I absolutely adore that mare.
The clydes are nice because despite their draftiness, are nicely build for riding if they are cross with something light. A lot of the other draft breeds are more draft-like more shorter legged and thicker barrel.
Look up online what you like.
