I'm looking into buying a horse in the next few years, and have a lot of interest in eventing. Don't worry, I will be more focused on temperament rather than breed when I actually go horse hunting, but there's no harm in narrowing my search down a little bit.
Anyway, once I get past cantering issues, I am hoping to get into eventing, and especially XC, however I don't have the money to get a WB, and am a little concerned with the temperament of a TB (Not that I won't stay open minded towards either). I also have experience in Western, and because my area is much more Western oriented, it is much easier to get into a Western show/ event than English. I love paints and QHs for the most part however if I am going into XC, I know that many quarter horses don't have much stamina. Is this also true with paints, especially if it was a paint with a large amount of TB blood? I am open to any breed of horse from 14 - 17+ hh, even ponies (I kind of have a weird obsession with haflingers atm.) Anway, I am just looking for suggestions on breeds of horses that can do great at eventing and won't get funny looks in the Western ring. (If I go Western as well I really like reining, so all around horses are great here.) Thanks!
