Kayty, sorry I was using that as an example of how blanket statements aren't always true, no harm meant.
Thesilverspear, usually an american warmblood is a cross between a draft breed and something else, not always a true warmblood breed (ex: hanoverian, oldenburgs, dutch warmbloods ect.) This is where the term warmblood may be thrown around a bit to loosely, this is more of a draft cross if you will.
I do agree with the above posts that this term is thrown around a bit to much I was just trying to say that some other breeds can do dressage well also, like QH and appy's and draft crosses, sorry if I offended anyone.

That wold be because in GB american warmblood is not a recognised breed with the appropriate stud book/passport.

If you bought a KWPN from the continent then thier passports and breeding can be verified.

The AQHA is recognised, has a UK branch of the studbook and is a PIO in the UK so a horse who went through thier correct passporting system would remain registered as a Quater horse.

Yes, guys, I'm not an idiot. I do know these things. I might even know what my horse's actual breeding is. :) I was just being silly. And posting a shameless, cute picture of my horse.

By the way, Faye, she could have been passported in Britain as a "sporthorse" but that would have cost me at least twice as much as it cost me to give her a grade horse passport.

America: where grades are warmbloods and anyone with a European warmblood is a snobby b*%#@ according to every other horse owner.

Imo there is "doing third level" and riding third level. One is going through a pattern and earning a whopping 50% and the other is showing potential for a higher level ride with true collection and gait quality involved in the whole shebang. Some of us are only satisfied with the latter. Sorry if you think it makes me stuck up and yes I have ridden "alternative" breeds in dressage and still do.


Eta if you don't like warmbloods imported or descended from Europe or the people that own them then you better not vote Romney, he has like 12.

Yep silverspear, however you don't have to have breeding to register a gelding with SHB (GB) Reeco could be registered with them tommorow if I paid the fee, however he has a WPCS passport instead

Lots of reasons to not vote for Mittens but that's not one of them!

My horse doesn't even have her parents listed on her passport, as they needed documentation of that and its 8000 miles away.

Don't understand Anebel's reaction. I didn't register my horse with the AWS. Previous owner did that. I'm way too antiestablishment to register a horse with anything. She has a British passport because it's a legal requirement. If I have to identity her breed, I say half shire or draft cross. I don't think people who have European warmbloods are snobs. What a ridiculous idea.

Back to the original point of my thread. My friend wants to take time with my help and the help of some respectable trainers to go up the levels. She wants a horse that will stay with her a long time. Iv gotten more photos and a short video, will be interesting to meet these poeple, they seem very nice and more on the natural side. Nothing wrong with that just a different approach with such a big boy ;) I'll post the video and pictures from the computer here in a few minutes but gotta run and get breeches and stuff on for my last clinic lesson this afternoon!

It's a Lusitano crossed with a QH, lets call a spade a spade. Based on breeding alone, it has one half that is likely not going to make a third level dressage horse (the QH half) and one half that depending on the breeding, is potentially capable of doing so. However judging by the price, it's probably some "Lusitano" that's not even in the Portuguese studbook anyways (or wont be for long once they learn he's been crossbred).
Therefore, it's extremely unlikely that the horse is (by breeding) going to even have 2 decent gaits for dressage, let alone 3. Of course there are always freaks of nature, but in general I'd say the horse is destined for a life of pleasure riding and maybe doing some cow work.

You're going to have a lot more success in that price range looking for a nice TB that is capable of some good third level work.

Good luck!

Wow, you can sure tell a lot from a poor quality photo. I'm impressed!

Where'd you get that idea? If a person acts like a snobby @#$% , then they'll be thought that. Whether they are exclusively dressage , reining or WP, or Parelli, for that matter.
