    Thats the stupidest thing i've ever heard!!! Holy crap!!! They're freaking ignorant. 2 weekends ago I went to an event. Rode in pre-entry, the 3rd place rider was on a 13hh paint pony. Hello, did better than me!! And on of the horses that placed in pre-training jsut so happened to be a paint, probably a cross with a TB} by the looks of it but still partially paint. And they placed in pre-training.

    I'm planning on kicking butt on my ex-rollkur horse who supposedly "would never be able to move the right way" in shows and clinics this summer.

    Aha, I just looked it up and our "novice" is comparable to the "preliminary" here - 1.10m jumps. Thanks for clarification!

    Paints are certainly capable of eventing. Case and point, my horse. Nationally ranked a few years ago before his injury.

I mean you CAN do the lower level, but it's not going to be something over the top..

    You know, I don't think conformation is nearly as important as the size of a horse's heart.

    I knew an advanced event horse in the early 80's who won USCTA's horse of the year. He was amazing because he had the worse imaginable conformation. He was very post legged, had a club foot, and had a butt neck. However, his heart was the size of Texas and he would do anything his rider asked of him.

    Conformation can be a good advantage, but it is not the end all when deciding if a horse "has it", IMO.

    Hmmm.... That's an interesting statement. While I completely agree that horse's will to compete or just do a certain discipline is the most important thing, what if it's conformed so badly that it can't really jump high? That's what I was told about my qh by 2 respected instructors in area (with lots of experience, not just some friends making fun of me) - she's pretty hopeless even though she's very smart, because she has (somewhat) crooked legs, big butt and heavy on forehand (we are working on it though!). So frankly I'm afraid to go to anything higher then 2 feet... Because I'm afraid it'll be too hard on her legs.

    Is this post for attention or serious?

    I do 3ft jumpers and hunters with my pinto, first level dressage, barrel racing, and trail ride. Your story is so old and common I can't tell wether your being serious. Spots can't contribute to wether your horse has what it takes to be an eventer. Slap your ignorant boarder friends.

    You know whats funny.....we have a completely untrained four year old pinto mare at my barn who can take on 3 foot fences no problem. I don't know about dressage though.
