I have a black standardbred almost marked the same. No one believes he is a standardbred because he is so pretty. Full blaze and white stockings. If I can get my camera to work I will get some photos of him. But that sure is a beautiful mule. I have always wanted one, hard to find here in Illinois.

I own a Standardbred and hes one of the kindest, hard working horses I have EVER owned.

Hes only 15.3hh but we jump 1.30m at home and are D-grading EFA atm. I re-trained him out of pacing and now hes my Show Jumper.

I got Zorro for free, I don't know if it's the way I read it but it sounds as if you are saying Standardbreds don't make good competition horses. Thats fine if you don't prefer their conformation, but aren't you a show jumper? Have you actually ever owned a Standardbred? Ever competed one?

Zorro is the best show jumper I have owned and will do anything for me. I compete seriously and get very good results with Zorro.

Are you aware that in France, they are breeding some of the worlds best jumpers to Standardbreds to produce even more successful jumpers? And trust me, those people seriously compete..

You can't say all Standardbreds have bad conformations. They all are different. None in my barn even look the same. I have short fat ones and tall thin long ones. Some I think would be outstanding riding horses and some I wouldn't ride for anything. Awkward horses come in any breed and dumb is widespread. :P

Thanks,

I agree with you Dlee. My friend shows a lovely dark bay Standardbred and gets outstanding results with her. She is such a beautiful horse and you would mistake her for a thoroughbred if it was not for her brand.
