I am not the one who developed this horse, so I am not the one to ask.

But in the little brochure we have, it says, "The Blazer Horse was developed to be a very versatile horse. They are handy, hearty, agile, and tough. This gentle and willing athlete can perform any equine task set before it and is bred to move with grace, comfort, maneuverability and elegance."

So they can do anything from dressage to cattle roping, jumping to barrel racing, or racing to driving. They were bred to do most anything.

If you want any more information, here is a link.

For those of you saying that it is just a way to scam people out of their money, Blazers are actually a fairly inexpensive horse. I got both my horses for $800 each for two of our horses. When a friend of ours bought a Blazer directly from the breeder, she only paid $1,200. Our horses are wonderful and is everything we could ever could ask for.

They're meaning that the Blazer 'registry' is no better than the 'blue eyed horse association'

Amberly, what makes them any more special than the breeds that are around that can and do do those things already? As far as I can tell by looking at pedigrees, the "blazer" breed was started by someone with an unregistered appendix AQHA who bred the crap out of him to anything with a uterus including his own dam, daughters and granddaughters, etc.

Because its a quarter horse..

You can get any breed of horse for cheap.. we are talking about the registration actually being legitimate

Doesn't half of the horse population have this?!?!?! VVV

Size limit is no horse under 13 hands and over 15 hands at maturity
Muscles need to be smoothly attached without bunching or cramping
Gentle and willing disposition for easier training
Refined and well balanced head with eyes are dark
Slight crest in the neck with good clear throat latch for balance and beauty
Extreme slope to the shoulder and pastern for smooth and easy movement
Nicely defined withers to hold the saddle
Short back, to carry weight this more ease of movement and comfort for the horse and rider
Well rounded croup for maneuverability
Long hip for more driving power when turning or stopping
Long underline for a long free stride
Hard feet that do not pan out are desired.

I'm quite daunted that this was allowed to be put on paper....when will people realize that intense line-breeding diminishes the gene pool and all that's left over is a handful of genes either good or bad......usually the bad ones start showing up.......how about the hillbilly folk who for generations married cousins etc....and even amongst royal families.....terrible genes were concentrated into family's, it's even going on in some tribal community's, cancer rates through the roof! It's a shame.

Go ahead and laugh. We never have had to shoe our horses and rarely have to trim their hooves. Their hooves are in beautiful shape.

It's too bad that your ignorance is making it so you cannot appreciate one best horses out there. I don't have the time to argue with people who don't want to believe what is right or see the good in one little horse. It's sunny outside and I am not going to waste my time arguing and I am going riding.

I don't have time for trollers. I hope that one day you'll see something good in all horses like me and a lot of other horseman's do.

No one's trolling. Oh my gosh. They're pouting out the fact that they're basically grade quarter horses, not special little rainbow butterfly new and improved sun shinin out the butt horses.

And yet again, you've described QHs and TBs to a T. I personally know a TB who is as cowy as any cutting bred QH, but has superb movement for the dressage ring, and who could, with a little training, be a nice solid jumper. He's also an OTTB who had a decent racing career.

Pretty sure everyone meant the registration fees paid to "register" these horses is where the scamming is going on. I can get a nice registered QH with decent lines around here for under $1500...and it isn't inbred out the wazoo.

Yeah I don't either..My farrier literally does my horses feet once every other time everybody else gets their horses done. I ask and I am the one who calls the farrier but when he comes out he says they are in great shape and don't need it. No body's trying to make you feel bad but looking at those pedigrees..it is absolutely terrible and the registration is laughable its nothing but an inbred horse. Your horse may be wonderful and im not saying he isn't but the whole "blazer" horse is a joke. And believe it or not I happen to like crossbred/grade horses

No one here is trolling.

Just because we didn't fall down and worship the ground the "blazers" walk on doesn't mean we're trolling.

They are not a breed in any sense of the word. They are a grade horse "registered" with a suspect registry that has no guidelines for breeding other than height and color which outright screams illegitimate registry. All of the founding horses are so inbred back to Little Blazer I am surprised that they don't have five legs and colored purple.
