A thread for the very versatile and amazing Quarter horses. Feel free to share pictures of your QH doing things some people might not expect them to…. Or share some of them doing expected sports! Just some QH appreciation (:
Here is my 15+hh QH, Studley, doing hunters, jumpers, and parade work (we are the second on the left) - in that order!
This mare is actually a registered Paint, but not a drop of Paint breeding in her. Her sire was a crop out QH before the rule was changed. But she's the most versatile horse I've ever owned, I don't have her now I sold her to some friends. But Patty could do almost everything, good barrel horse, good pole horse, great rodeo horse, excellent trail horse, she jumped, she did hunt seat, she could do a reining pattern decent enough for the local fair, I gave beginners lessons on her, she could even pull of a western walk trot class good enough to get called back out of 20 some horses. She wasn't great at any of these things but she was good, she's a 3D barrel horse a 22 second pole horse and she won me the over fence classes at fair.
Excuse my english riding
And to not leave out my current boy Link a registered QH, he does exactly what he's bred to do barrels and poles and he does them well. Posted via Mobile Device
This is my guy -- He's supposed to be a QH cross.. Although I don't have a clue what he's actaully mixed with. I'm thinking a little of a draft breed. He's been a challenge to train, but he's doing fantastic, and I'm so proud of his progress.
This is Nevada. I'm in love with her, despite already having too many horses of my own I'm attached to. I'll have a tough decision come spring. Anyhow, she's spirited, has an incredible work ethic, and likely will ever only be good for an experienced rider. Bred to work cows, crazy athletic and so fast she can turn right out from under you if your not paying attention. Awesome little horse.
