Horse breed for Jumping ?

Hi
So I ride Dressage right now but in the next month or so I'll be purchasing my own horse (since I had to sale my others a few years ago) and I want to start Jumping or "show jumping" , however I'm not sure which breed is best for this ? "Dressage/Show Jumping."
I'll be doing the Jumping more than Dressage after I start it but I just don't know which breed is best for these things. I wanted a Friesian but they aren't really show jumping horses and I want to get serious in the Jumping so ya ...

(maybe this exact thing has been asked already if so sorry I'm new )
Thnx !!!

I would think a warmblood, Thoroughbred, Arabian, Morgan and even draft-cross breeds.

Welcome to the forum!

If you're looking to get serious with jumping, I would not recommend a Friesian. They are more carriage horses and less sport horses, IMO. I would reccomend a warmblood or Thoroughbred. Oldenburgs, Swedish/Dutch Warmbloods, Hanoverians, Holsteiners, all breeds known for athletism. Don't discount a horse because he's not of a breed you're looking for, view each horse as an individual and assess his qualities based on each horse.

Thank you ! And yes that is very right don't discount horses because of breed Most definate.
And ya I know a lot of people ride Freisians for Dressage but they are more carriage horses , but very beautiful no matter how you choose to ride them.

Welcome to the forum!
Yes I was thinking maybe Throughbred. I like a little bigger(taller) horse too and a lot of them are around 16 hands which is perfect. (to me.) I'm 5'5 however I just like a taller horse. It doesn't really matter just some silly liking of mine.

Thank you I'm happy to found it !!

I agree with the breeds that have already been listed!! But some horses like example Tbs (dont know about other breeds) ........anyway some can be very very good jumpers but I own a Tb that can't go very high so I think you need to have a look at individuals!!!
