Warmblood/Oldenburg as a jumper

There's this mare I'm looking at to buy, and she is a Warmblood/Oldenburg cross. I have not ridden either of those breeds ever, although I heard that both breeds are generally good for jumping (which is what I want to do). What are some things I can expect from her in general? I understand that horses are individuals and there are exceptions to every rule, but I'm just talking some general things about the breeds. Thanks for replies!

Just so you know, Warmblood isn't a breed. It's a group of breeds (Trakehners, Hanoverians, Oldenburgs, Dutch Warmbloods, etc.)

Anyway, from my experience most have pretty large gates and can be pretty hot. Some also can be very sensitive. Good luck with trying out the horse though!

Oldenburgs ARE warmbloods.

This type of horse is very popular in jumping and dressage but like all breeds there are individuals within that can be better than what you might expect or worse.

Usually this warmblood type is good for what you are looking for but if you can tell me what its sire and dam ( pedigree) is I might be able to give you more information.

Thanks for the replies. Her sire is Rhoquest and her dam is Sandy's Smile.

In researching the stallion I think you would need to see this horse.

Rhoquest is a saddlebred warmblood cross. Nowhere do I see it being Oldenburg and just from the name of the dam I suspect it is not full warmbllod either but a single or a many crossed mare.

This puts into doubt the ability of this horse you are going to look at.

The only minor saving grace is that Rhoquest's sire is Art Deco but he himself is a cross also.

I suspect that because Art Deco is approved with the Oldenburg that the owners are misinformed that their horse being a granddaughter of an Oldenburg stallion..or...

IF it is indeed an Oldenburg then it is in the lowest classification along with other mixed breeds.

I think the dam is a TB. Here is a picture of the horse.

That is faintly possible to be a TB as there are some coloured ones but more likely it is a TB/Quarter cross.

Not crossed with quarter. Quarter horses do not like pinto coloring.

Judging by the picture the horse looks a little downhill. Also, the neck looks pretty thin/small along with the head. It isn't really an 'ideal' mount for Dressage or Jumping but I would still look at it.

I really depends on the horse itself. If it likes what it's doing, if it's willing to work, etc.

For example, Jesse with his dinner plate feet, giant head, and short legs has been trained up to 2nd Level Dressage and can jump over 4ft. He absolutely loves to jump, and is a completely different horse when doing so.
