My Mick is an Appendix. We do it all (except barrels... he is WAYYYY over them ) He is a great jumper, has good movement for our lower level dressage, is trustworthy and reasonable on the trail. He is HIGH spirited though, and we have lots to work out as a team. I love my boy, but I have to agree with the others to not put too much stock in a particular breed. I was CERTAIN I would end up with a a huge TB.. instead I have a 16 hand red dun. But I love his mind and he is athletic as all heck. Good luck with your search!

I have owned my Appendix for 4 years now, and I love him to death. He's so talented with literally the best personality that I have ever come in contact with. He really gives his all in the show arena and just loves what he does. We have accomplished more than I would have ever imagined, and the second I doubt him, then he immediately surpasses my expectations. Love him to death :) I highly recommend one!

The registration process for Appendix QH's can get a little confusing. I had to look it up again on AQHA's website to make sure I had all my facts straight.

So, when a registered QH is bred to a Jockey club TB the resulting foal is registered under the AQHA's appendix registry. The appendix horse is still eligible to compete in all AQHA events. The only time you come across restrictions is if you plan on breeding the animal. Appendix horses can only be bred to non-appendix Quarter horses in order for the foal to be registered. I'm pretty sure that foal will also be registered as an appendix.

However! AQHA does allow exceptions to this rule. If the horse earns a ROM in the open division at shows or achieves an 80 or better Speed Index on a race track, the horse is eligible to advance into the regular AQHA registry. This means all their offspring are registered under the regular AQHA registry as well, and can then be bred back to a TB or appendix QH for an appendix foal.

As a result of all this confusion, it is possible to end up with a registered appendix horse that is more thoroughbred than quarter horse.

I have a 9 year old appendix mare. She's also registered as a solid paint. She's 16.1 and weighs a good 1100 lbs. She is an amazing ride. Very soft and stops on a dime, even in a halter. She does have a lot of attitude. She's no cuddle bug like my geldings. And yet she's easy to approach in any size pasture and amazing under saddle. I use her on barrels, but I trust her with my kids. The only picture I have on my current computer is an action shot so you can't see her true conformation, but she's very high withered which I think is typical of an appendix. I love the appendix. Nice combination of two amazing athletes.
