Arab cross for jumping/dressage horse?
I found a nice 13 year old Arab cross for sale who has great conformation and hooves and is a great all around horse who has nice flashy gaits and has been trained to jump and has been jumped in the past and was said that he wouldn't refuse jumps. But do Arab crosses make good jumpers? I know they're not bred for the conformation of jumping horses and Arabs bone structure is a little more frail than other breeds so the impact can be hard on them, but with the horse being a cross, could he make a nice jumper?
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux
