So I'm on the hunt for a new horse since I've decided to semi-retired my 21 yr old morgan gelding Blaze. I've been trying to decide on what breed to get next. I defiantly want that can be an all rounder as well as a jumper. Basically
I'm leaning toward 3 breeds at the moment well 4 if I decided to get another morgan. I'm been wanting to put a pros and cons list together and I was hoping you guys might help me!
So breed 1: A Quarter Horse. Very versatile breed (my cousin has a QH/warmblood cross and he's amazing ride!)Con: not knowing if the horse as Impressive bloodlines.
breed 2: American Paint. I love this breed and would die for a black and white paint (one my dream horses!)
breed 3: An OTTB. I would love to get a OTTB (its another dream horse!) I've been looking at adoptions but even at adoptions there expensive and the more training the get the prices raise. The only real Con about this breed would be old race injury.
Right now I'm just not sure which breed. I was really leaning toward the QH until all the stuff about HYPP started popping up. It terrifies me that if I were to get a QH with my luck they would have HYPP and just not a risk I want to take.
Another Breed I thought about was a morab but I don't really know to much about them. Heck idk anything about them.
