Agility of breed...

I am getting a Belgian TB gelding and was wondering if this breed is too heavy to do jumping...nothing huge just plop around. Also does anyone own a TB/Hanoverian. How is there ability to jump, dressage, trainability etc. Feel free to post pictures of your belgian/TB and TB/Hanoverians.

I have a friend who jumps her percheron, she does eventing with her and the mare loves it(of course who owner does too) Now don't get me wrong this percheron isn't as big as many and who would of thought a draft could be so agile. Heres a pic of Stacey and Klien(you can google the jumping percheron if you would like to learn more she has a blog).

I have 3 friends who each have a Draft cross. One has a BelgianxQH, one has a TBxShire and the other has a TBxBelgian. Each of the 3 horses are Geldings and doing very well in Dressage training. I know they are very pleasant trail riding horses, because I had trail rode with all 3 at one time or another. They each will go in English tack or Western. Trainability is exceptional with these 3. One has done some jumping small jumps, but for fun. That rider is a bit less fearful of doing it. Don't think you could go wrong getting the BelgianxTB gelding.

Wow, what a brave and talented rider jumping bareback!!!
