You're absolutely right. You don't put a QH in front of 3 barrels and except it to know what to do.
I have a welsh pony that could give a qh a run for its $$ if I put a little bit more time into teaching him, but I'm leaning more toward making him a "children's pony" as that's what everyone wants in a smaller pony.
Though I'd much rather barrel race him and do games and jumper shows. =]
