A well built TB would give you more height and all round athletic ability
If you aren't worried about getting a taller horse I would also consider a Welsh section D cob if you wanted something with more body that would jump
If I breed her, I want to try to make sure the baby hits horse size. I am not interested in a pony at all. I am almost considering just keeping an eye on craigslist and equinenow for anything under 8 years old, if it has the build I like, and color. And if it was out of state paying for shipping. I would hate to go through all the money to breed her, and end up with something I do not want at all, because the sale price would be lower then what I had spent on the breeding. So now I am kind of thinking, keep looking for something I like regardless of where it is and go from there. I had a tobiano paint with two blue eyes out of scotch bar, and since my dad sold him out of anger at me, I have tried to track this horse down. I know his reg name and all that. But I can't find him. I know I can't replace him. But man would I love a horse with his color though. He was gorgeous. I am thinking I would be interested in buying a warmblood, thoroughbred, morgan, or a good built paint.
