Opinions please!

I have been doing some research and have a theory i wanted to share and ask some people's opinions...

I am looking for an A circuit hunter prospect that could do the 3'6"+. i want a 2-4 yr old that i could start and train mostly on my own as a project.

that said, i have a theory that dressage-bred warmbloods could potentially be really nice hunters. with their big should and uphill build, there are some that dont have the knee action and i thought that there could be potential there. has anyone out there tried this with a youngster intended for dressage? i know there are a lot of dressage sires who have sired great show jumpers.


i welcome any opinions/ideas, thanks!

Why not look for a horse from proven hunter parents?
