    I personally am a quarterhorse person. I used to do tons of eventing with cutter. We'd do x county courses usually between 2'6'' and 2'9'' and he did great. A friend of mine also has a quarterhorse and she events with her 3'' and her horse does great too. I know several other people with quarterhorses who event and their horses excell in it. I think quarterhorses are a great all purpose horse :)

    I've only known two Hanovarians. The first is an older gelding. His gaits are amazing, although he's really stiff and arthritic(sp?) now. His tempermant is pretty good and apparently he used to a quite an eventer is his hay day.

    The other Hano I knew was a younger mare and she was wonderful under saddle and over fences. However, she had horrible ground manners, was extremely hot, and generally hard to get along with. In fact, she was hotter than the TBs I knew.

    Like others have said, it depends on the particular horse, not the breed.

    Although I love hanoverians don't settle for one breed.
    When I was looking for a paint horse, I ended up getting a quarter horse. And now I'm looking for a dressage horse, and I'm seriously considering getting a jumping pony
    Just have fun and people at the Horse Forum are more than happy to help.

    Well I've been riding since I was 8, and I've leased horses for 2 years now and I'll be leasing the one I am now at least for another year before I buy one. So, yeah I'm going to want one that has experience in eventing, but one that we both have the chance to move up together you know what I mean?

    Yeah I have a quarter horse right now I absolutely love him to death too and he tries his heart out for me. That's why I'm going to keep leasing him for now. But I'm going to need the move up and eventually get my own horse. I'm just saying I like Hannoverians and I might look for one, not particularly that one breed. I was just wondering if anyone agreed with me that they are ideal for eventing.

    My first horse was a 8 year old thoroughbred... he was amazing, he was calm and gentle and trustworthy.

    Now I have a tb/hanov cross and I LOVE the cross. I would recommend them anyday, I think if your looking for a good eventer get a tb/hanov cross...then you have the speed, power and elagence. :)

    Yeah. I understand. You don't want a very green horse, but then he mustn't be too experienced. That is true. = )

    I would say that a Hano would be an excellent idea. I have heard they are great all rounders, which is perfect for eventing.

    Yep that's exactly what I mean. And I'm not focusing on Hanoverians primariley, it also depends on cost.

    According to the WBFSH as of Oct 22/09 the top eventing breed by studbook is the Irish Sport Horse with the Hannovarian coming in second and Selle Francais rounding out the top three.

    By individual rankings it is slightly different.

    I have heard that registered Hanoverians can be very costly, although that's just what I've heard. There are also many others to check out. What other breeds are you considering?
