Totally agree with you now! LOL. You should never jump a 'true' heavy horse competitively but if you want a really good sports horse then you can do no better than outcross a TB or Dutch Warmblood/Hanovarian with a Shire/Clyde/Belgian/Suffolk. If you then breed two outcross together you do end up with a good all rounder.
