I dont care rather they have papers or not. My saying is always you cant ride papers. I barrel race so I dont need papers.

Percheron's were crossbred for many yrs to breed larger Percherons.
My team is registered, but the only reason is for shows.

Put it this way, I'm looking for a Zebra stud for my Appaloosa mare . You can't ride papers. It's the horse that matters.

Mmkay.. The reason I'm asking is because I'm thinking of investing in a new project horse, and (as we all know) crossbreds are cheaper... I realize that this will mean lower profit points, but just HOW much lower?

I think that depends entirely on what are you planning on training him for and who your main market will be. The dressage world in these parts are well, not the highest quality in the country, and judging by the shows I've been to don't seem to care too much. None of the hunter trainers around here really care and the jumpers definately could care less! They'll buy anything as long as it can do the job. I do have to say that I would tend to veer away from breeds that aren't typically seen successful in the field. Like if someone claimed their saddlebred cross was a beautiful 3"6 hunter? It would have to look and move a whole lot unlike a saddlebred for me to be interested in it.

(before all the saddlebred lovers out there attack me for saying that and tell me about so and so's saddlebred who was horse of the year and a beautiful jumper and all of that.... I'm using them as an example! they're not made to be hunters so the vast majority of them will not be successful in the upper level shows! don't hate me.... i love your horse...)

I am more likely to buy an unregistered crossbreed. They point is easily put. Most people want the opposite. Registered. Purebred. Often because of this, wonderful horses are given up without a second though and they are sold relatively cheap because they aren't registered or purebred or they don't have a good pedigree.. I'm a trail rider, and nothing more. I could care less whether the horse I own is a paintaquartaloosarabianwalker.
