Well, naturally, they have smooth gaits, so if you want to do trails, they're usually awesome, but if you want to do performance stuff like jumping or dressage, their gaits don't really allow you to succeed. The same shoulder angle that allows them to gait prevents them from being successful jumpers (they CAN, but not high) and as far dressage goes, this should be self evident, as they don't trot. So trails yes, but to my knowledge, performance no.
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
