Not all TB's are light weight, or built for racing. I personaly know of a nice 16.2hh failed race horse who you would easily mistake for a fairly hefty WB. She is currently doing Para dressage!

I have to agree with this.

I watch races from the UK and other non N.A. Countries and the one thing I notice very sharply is that the Euro ( including UK ) TB seems to be a little stockier, more bone and shorter backed than the typical TB ( racing type) in NA.

Ours seem to have such long backs and look more like greyhounds than the typical ( racing ) TB over the pond.

Faye - I too am English, hunted, showed hunters at county level and also worked with them. They were very rarely ever full TB's - mostly TB crosses.

Wish I lived in UK sometimes for that.. been brought up over here though, and they don't do any showing classes, really, apart from stallion parades and heavies..

TNavas, as I said the modern hunter is generaly a cross (except for point to pointing).

However the original hunter (pre first world war) would have been a TB!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

T Nav as - he was a really lovely TB that I owned for many years.
