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?

Thanks!

This may not be the answer you are looking for but right now the TOP jumping studbook is the KWPN

So for breed I listed the top 5 breeds specifically for jumping.

HOWEVER for PRICE that is another ball game entirely.

Don't just look at the breed, but the papers as well. Horses that have successful parents in SJ are more likely to be good at it too.

Doesn't always happen, but it does.

I am not a fan of KWPNs, but that's me. I find them to be very hot under the collar, and difficult temperaments. Again, this is some, not all, but living 10mins away from the Dutch border we see a lot. It may be the breed, the parents or the training.

I've always been a huge fan of Dutch warmbloods, and depending on where you live and what your budget is, it is possible to find one that suits you. I recently tried a lovely mare that was for sale for $5000, in Canada. She was actually perfect in every way, which is actually why I didn't buy her. I wanted more challenge.

I am going to be the odd ball out, but personally, I LOVE Arabs for jumping. I think they would be more popular in the jumping world if they were a little bigger, but this is just me.

Yes my boy (Dutch Warmblood/Paint) has his hot-as-tart moments, and then his lovely paint side comes out. But my goodness he's got quite the engine if you know what you're doing!

I actually used to ride an Arabian (the polish kind) mare that was doing some jumping. She was a teacup but nothing stood in her way. So I'd have to agree with you there.


But another vote for Selle Francais. My best friend had one (she sold recently ;_;) and he was quite the big air jumper.

Hehe, no, I don't believe they do. If you are really serious about the Thoroughbreds and also the Arabs, then I would surely look into Anglo Arabs. They run a little bigger ;D

Could you give me an idea of what their breed is like? I usually trust fellow HF members for breed info rather then google :)

Also a picture or two would be nice :)
