I've seen numerous QH do very well jumping. Some even do better than some of the warmbloods at jumping.

They can jump and some of them very good but if you want to be a serious show jumper you will need to get a horse specifically bred for jumping, but that's only if you will be jumping professionally ;)

I have a QH and he loves to jump! And he's actually pretty good at it ;)

Thanks that's all I needed to hear? And just another question...How old were you guys when you first started jumping your first jump?

Yes, there are plenty of good QH jumpers out there. Growing up we always jumped ours (even the shorty cutting bred horses can jump) I jumped my reining mare as well as an running bred QH mare, both were fun. Reiner - she was only 14.3 but would go for the moon, wasn't as pretty as some but when it came down to a timed jump off, she was stellar because she could take some really tight turns with ease and in a hurry! I never pushed her past 3'6". My running bred mare (15.3) was more graceful and much more the hunter type, she was really scopey and a fun ride, I took her to 4 ft.

Here's a QH jumper

If you go through the quarter horses history, you pick apart the ideals of the quarter horse breed, they where bred to run very fast at a quarter mile, hence the name, so if a quarter horse bred properly with a classic athletic build (like no over grown heavy halter horses) then the heavily muscled hindquarters, in my opinion, would work very well for soaring over jumps. IMO. I am no jumping pro.
