WAIT and you will find the one that is just right for you-you'll be so much happier than if you settle-just like anything else but it is hard to wait when you want something so much. Best of luck in your search

I do dressage and I was wondering what you guys thought of this guy? He's 3 and is 16hh apparently has a great temprament. I havent encountered this breed, I tried to do some reading but it says that they are mainly used in plowing/pulling stuff. Does anyone have any further information? Do you think he has any dressage potential from you guys can see?

I used to have a irish draft x tb, and he was amazing.
He had massive potential as a dressage horse as a youngster, but due to an injury we couldnt persue this.
He had a good jump as well- up to 3ft.

My Delta Dawn, is Irish Draught cross Connemara - all Irish

15h2, dapple grey, 8 yo Mare. Big chest, big butt,
Good looker, good doer, powerful, intelligent,

But highly sensitive

Irish Draughts are bred very often for cross breeding.
The temperament is usually a key characteristic of the breed.

The addition of TB adds a bit to speed and lightens up the build

Or if you want
The addition of ID beefs up the TB and counters some of the inbreeding

IDXTBs make excellent hunters and cross country horses.

As for dressage, well they are intelligent

But, you'll have tpo sit on the horse to make your decision

Hi I agree Irish Drafts are fabulous all rounders. Originally they were used for ploughing but also for the farmer to hunt at weekends. Mine does everything eventing Dressage showjumping and hunting. Irish Draft crosses make superb competition horses e.g Headley Brittania who won Badminton and Burghley and Bettina Hoys Ringwood cockatoo. Irish Drafts are known for their hardiness and superb temprements. If you would like to know more about the breed the Irish Draft UK website is imformative. www.idhsgb.com
