Unusal breeds for unusal things?
So I have noticed in my travels that differant parts of the horse riding world have differant purpose bred crosses or breeds of horses for differant things that would never be thought of in other countries
Where I am there are a huge amount of clydesdale crosses, that are bred for jumping, and they are amazing jumpers, would you believe, one of our olympic showjumpers was part clydesdale.
In america I've seen QHx used alot in the hunter and jumper rings, althoug they are not really used at all here.
I saw a western show in germany and they had all these halflingers doing reining, some of them could spin to! Was hilarious seeing germans in cowboy hats on heavy set ponys!!
So what do you see where you are? Is there an unconventional cross, or breed that's popular?
