I had a friend with a quarter horse who was open jumper caliber and that's what she did with him. An amazing horse with big huge haunches that launched him like a rocket. He loved what he did, and in timed events he could wheel around like he was a barrel racer. Don't count them out. :)

just like tb's are not all in a catagory. i've had the skitzo horse, she was a tb and all i could get her to concentrate on was showjumping, my level headed eventer is a tb and people give me weird looks coz the horse i wear spurs onbut he needs a stronger bit for xc.
the QH one i was told they were down hill, i wasn't sure of that. i very rarely see QH's doing anything but western riding were i'm from, i see plenty of X breeds.
i'm sorry i stirred up some hot blood and i'll just keep my opinions and my instructor at home.

If you didn't agree with it, perhaps you could have mentioned that you didn't agree when you were writing it? If you post on a thread that is asking for opinions and you state an opinion, even if it isn't your own, people will assume that you agree with it, otherwise why would you bother writing it?
Sweeping generalisations often draw criticism as they are frequently inaccurate and many of us will contradict them, particularly if the OP is asking for advice in an area they are not familiar with as they may not know that such generalisations are not true all the time.

Sorry that you took it personally, wasn't meant to be offensive although I guess may seem to you like we all jumped down your throat!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
