    Well I know all horses can jump but these days, sometimes judges grade unfairly because of the breed. Like some have beliefs that quarter horses should not be hunters and that is the warmblood jobs. Unfortunatly that's how my trainer was..but my horse jumps pretty good for never foing it before, still a little green but we are jumping 1'6 at the trot...and he has jumped them at a standstill. So maybe he will turn out to like it...he just wants to eat grass the whole time because we are surounded by it XD

    I think he is a Morgan x Thoroughbred... A Morganbred! Or maybe a Thoroughmorgan... I don't know

    Your very right he does have the QH butt, but im still seeing a thoroughbred in there in the wither and shoulder area. And the head, he has a very slender head.

    His head is strikingly similar to my mare's... and she was sold to me as a "was registered, lost her paperwork and don't remember her registered name" quarter horse, lol. I was thinking he looked like QHxSaddlebred. Not all saddlebreds are gaited.

    Haha - I had only seen the first page, lol. This most recent picture, I think he looks like a younger (or easier life) version of my mare (I think)... high withers, blocky, huge head. Do you need to buy OS bridles for him?
        08-24-2010, 10:41 AM
    No actually his head is not that big lol. He isn't in cob sizes he is in normal horse sized bridles. I found it depends on the brand of bridle, the first one I got...was a kincade...the only one I could aford with the money I was earning and it fit his barely...but then I saved up my money and I got him a more expensive one and he has more room in it, yet it is still a horse size. And TBluver how can you tell the thouroughbred characteristics? My friend has a thouroughbred mixed with a lot of things but mostly thoruoughbred and it looks close to my horse.

    Here are some pics of his face...w/bridal

    Thats an interesting mark on his nose. Was it caused by an injury?

    He definitely looks a lot like a QH to me! But I see the TB through the shoulders & withers too - he seems deep chested, but he doesn't have the big shoulders of a QH. I'm going to back everyone up on the Appendix vote!

    Don't let the Hunter Jumper judges make you decide not to ride him the way you want to. You could always switch to show jumping, it's more fun anyway. ;)
