    Does your horse have a non-typical job for their breed?

    My sister and I were talking about owning a barn together eventually and she was going on about how she loves haflingers and fjords and if we could teach one to rein. Lol

    Just curious if anyone has a horse that does something non-typical for their breed? Maybe a draft that does gymkhana? A TB that works cows? A QH that pulls a cart?

    Photos/videos would definitely be bonus!! =D

    I endurance race a TWH. The sport is pretty much dominated by Arabians. I just hate trotting.

    My SSH does jumpers. A gaited jumping horse? Not something I've ever seen, but she does okay.

    These are OLD videos, back when we were just starting. (We had a very slow start, but it's since clicked with her.) We've since progressed to actual course work. ;)

    Mega sucky quality grids.

    She also does endurance/Open level NATRC. Not too atypical, but not the norm either.

    My barn owner used to endurance ride on ottb's and I've done compeditive trail on them.

    Also there is a very talented jumping appy pony on the farm.

    My cousins trail ride percherons.

    Hmm, I have a BLM Mustang that works very well as a ranch horse.

    We used to have a 16hh cow horse (Lena bred) I used to kill in HUS and over fences.

    I have a riding percheron, lol. People really love to see her undersaddle. She is the one that I put people on when I take non horse people for trail rides because she is so steady, but she sure makes them sore, as she is so wild. She is technically my Hubby's ride, as he is a bigger guy. She is realtively short at 16.2hh.

    My husband rides an OTTB as a trail horse in the Appalachian foothills. He's pretty unflappable and enjoys the trails, water crossings and wildlife.
