Which breed for serious jumping?

Which breeds would you think would be best suited for jumping around 2'6"-3'9" ? This is just for future reference for when I buy a horse I will know which breeds will do best.

I own a quarterhorse but he really isn't built for jumping, and I'm also riding an appendix which may or may not be suited for jumping....she's underweight ATM.

I was thinking warmbloods...hanoverians :) thoroughbreds, lol any other breeds?

Btw I know it depends on the individual horse itself, not just the breed.

Also I'm thinking more of a thoroughbred because I like their temporaments....because IMO they're cheaper, but are they really built for serious jumping?

I've heard quarter horses aren't really built for jumping though :/ they're more stocky then I'd like to see for jumping.

And if DWs weren't so **** pricey I'd have one in a heartbeat!

Ive seen quarter horses and especially appendix's excel in all jumping disciplines at the heights you've described, don't discount just because of breed! ;)

I'm really fond of appendixes too :) but honestly I'd rather have a QH for something other than jumping. Although Cowboy is pretty good at it :)

I really like tbs for jumping. My mare is hano/tb and I think its a great cross ! The most important thing to keep in mind is- is the conformation suited to jumping and is their mind suited to jumping ?

The QH at the lesson barn I ride at does just fine at jumping 2'9".

For lower levels, any horse that has the right mind can do it.

Just as long as you condition your horse like the other breeds
