Yeah, I agree. Although every horse is different in it's own.

replying kinda late but oh well. I happen to love appendix QH and just recently sold mine, she was incrediably smart and learned new things very easily. She is a barrel horse, she's 16 hands and can turn on a dime. Right now my friend has her. But the breed is a cross, and it depends on how much TB and how much QH traits the horse inheriats. I've seen AQH that I would have pined a small QH, a girl I know has a western pleasure AQH, it looks more QH. My friend has a AQH mare she's big and stocky but she can do anything with her build. The AQH I had, she was mainly TB she was big tall and lean. She had a TB head and looked like a stockier TB. Just depends on the build you find in one.

I've competed dressage with my appendix, I've jumped him up to 2'6 [but the height reflects my confidence, not him] He has NEVER, EVER refused a fence, no matter what height, obstacle, angle, gait he will go over ANYTHING.

I'm almost certain my guy was western broke cause, even though he's a very forward 16.2 horse he was a REALLY awesome western pleasure job and headset, not so much with his lope though, haha!

The only thing I don't do much with my appendix QH is trail riding, he's incredibly spooky and not a leader horse, he's o.k with another horse but he's very nervous on the trails alone.

Yeah the appendix I'm looking at on thursday seems to be more tb than qh to me. Either way, they seem very versatile!

My guy is much more TB than QH, but I love him. Sometimes he's a turkey, but he's exciting, challenging, and very VERY willing.

Yeah, I think I'd prefer having more tb in it for that athleticism.

While they are versatile I wouldn't suggest them as 5' jumpers. You'd have more success with a Thoroughbred or a Warmblood.

Not that I don't love my appendix. We have a really cute 2'6" hunter that always does well in shows, but QH in general are not as suited to do bigger jumps (my opinion, feel free to disagree)

No, I agree with that actually. I was just using that as an exaggeration. What I really meant by that is are they good higher level eventers/jumpers. Not necessarily at the top though!

I think they are best suited for low to mid levels (3' and possibly 3'6", but likely not higher.)

Yeah, I'm not entirely sure. I feel like some would be able to even go higher than that.
