    Thanks for all the good advice guys. As for what I want to do, well I want to do show jumping and will be working my way up to the 6 ft jumps. So that's why I want a horse that will be willing to keep getting higher until I reach that goal. Anyhow I do appreciate all the input. I will keep my eyes open.

    Wow, 6ft jumps?? That's intense, and you will have to find a really fit, and good horse to go that high. I woul pull for a tb or wb also, but it really counts more on the horse and not the breed. Make sure there are no previous injuries, and for a tb, one that wasn't raced is probobly your best choice. Good luck!!

    Yeah I vote TB's. Good allrounder... Just into link what Jumpit said, yes a unraced tb would be better, with no injuries. Make sure he/she is big boned etc (i won't bother going on, cause you probally all ready know what im going on about) :roll: Bloody hell....6ft!!! You have guts But goodluck with it all sweetheart, keep us updated!

    Tbs are easily injured thoe.. I think if its going to have tb in its, its best to cross with somethin sturdy coz ya dnt want ur darlin horse gettin hurt. I rekon hanorvarian x tb. One of my friends has a hanorvarian irish draught x tb and she's an excellent jumper.. highly reccomend + can handle the hard work!! Only thing is it could be a tad expensive!!.. and my friends horse is rather highly strung but if your experienced that shouldnt be a prob

    Thanks for all the advice! It might take me some practice and time to get that high but its a personal goal of mine. I am so excited though. I'll keep you posted.

    Yeah, a TB would be perfect!
    & I agree-nothing wrong with a nice WB, either!! :)

    My friend has a 17h TB and a 14.3h Morgan and the morgan jumps just as high as the TB.. (3.5-4 ft I think)..

    I like Morgans! =]

    Warmbloods, thoroughbreds, and appendixes are my favorite for jumping.
