    Welsh/TB crosses?

    I've always been curious about if anyone else has discovered this amazing cross? I'm not much into the circuits so I don't really know if this is already a popular cross or not.

    Currently I'm training this TB Welsh cross pony and she's simply amazing! EXACTLY like a little TB! She's jumped 3' 6" with room to spare (and she's only 14 hands high!)

    She's smart and hardy like a welsh- always been barefoot and goes about 10 to 12 weeks between trimmings just because her feet are just awesome. But she also has the athletic ability and stamina of a TB.

    Sorry, I'm just drooling over her at this point :P

    Just curious if anyone else has any of these crosses? Post pics and stories!

    My first horse was a welsh x thoroughbred. Bought her as a yearling and broke her out at 3 myself(I was 17). I sold her later that year to a very reputable jumping stable locally.

    Great mind, lovely to ride, quiet with enough zip to keep things interesting. Love this cross.

    I've seen some Connemara crosses, and heard of some good pony crosses however they're like all crosses, they can turn out really good, or plain weird. I imagine that's why it hasn't "taken off", with cross breeds you can accurately breed what you want.

    She looks super sweet though! She'd make a gorgeous kids pony or something one day.

    TB / Welsh crosses are extremely common over here as they make such a good mix. I was even thinking of putting my TB mare to a welsh, but was also tempted by a NF or Connemara.

    I agree with Clava, they are a common cross in the UK.

    In my years I have had several, my first horse was out of a TB mare X Welsh Cob, she jumped like a stag. Another was crossed the other way, Welsh dam, he was a big horse, very laid back with a great pop to him.

    It is a good X and, as said, popular in the UK. Many moons ago most event horses had a touch of pony, either Welsh or Connemarra to give them the ability to get out of trouble!

    Most british ridining ponies (show ponies and hunter ponies) are welsh x tb in various proportions (more welsh in the hunter ponies, more TB or arab in the Show ponies).

    We have a Welsh x Hannovarian/ TB cross filly. She is just 4, but we are hoping she will turn out very nice. Here's a picture of her under saddle with my daughter riding her. ( Rider is about 5'8" and pony is almost 14 hands)
