Hanoverian x Belgian Gelding

Has anyone heard of a Hanoverian x Belgian Gelding? What have your experiences been with them? Smooth gait? Good temperment? Are they good jumpers, or too heavy and better as ground work/dressage?

I've tried looking them up online, but it doesn't look like there are many articles about them.

Anyway.. all help is welcome.

The two 'breeds' have similar ancestry so a mix should be as good as the originals as long as its conformation and attitude are right
The modern day Hanoverian comes from Holstein and TB mix and they have lightened a lot in build even since the first ones I remember in the UK as they've added more TB into the line
The Belgian WB today is a result of introducing Holstein, Hanoverian, TB, Selle Francaise, KWPN and Anglo blood to what was a heavier built riding horse
Both breeds excel in show jumping and dressage
