Anything and everything! QH are so versatile and adding some TB blood just opens up more doors for them!

On that note, adding TB blood can very easily make them less coordinated under the western saddle and vice versatile for stock type blood. I find that AQH's are very good under an English saddle and also make good barrel horses, but although it is less likely I do see some cutters and reiners there too.

What would make them less coordinated under a western saddle? Isn't that more about training and experience?

sorrelhorse- I dotn quite understand the coordination thing. I have known MANY thoroughbreds who have excelled in western and struggled in enlgish although trained in both. Also known a few appendixs that have excelled in western (gymkhana and the few actual shows we have)

Any horse can be a 5' jumper if they have the heart and drive to do so.
