Hi Elz, there's a thread on team penning in this section somewhere, I had to ask what it was, looks really good!
I have tb x Dales, I always tend to go for a tb cross. In meg I have the spirit of a tb, but with the powerful behind and all roundness of the Dales. I do dressage and jumping with her, well up until tomorrow when she goes to stud.
And then I have Willow, Welsh section A, super all round pony for my daughter, yet great to show too.
I just have horses that have come to me, for training or for riding. No specific breeds needed or discipline.
I got my paint mare almost 3 years ago, she is 27 now and my trail and parade horse. She used to do hunter/jumper/dressage, she is a KICK BUTT flat horse, and she jumped up to 4', think she did some x-country in there for awhile. We were training for competitive trail and dressage show, but she got too old for the long hard trails, and she needs a huge arena to work.
I ride my trainers Arabian, first horse I took a lesson on, he has done everything under the sun, english and western. Jumped 5', champion dressage and trail class horse, cut cattle, etc. Now im learning to jump on him, hopefully a show at the end of the year.
Annabelle is a Welsh Pony, no clue what section but she isnt cob. She is a trained hunter, she has the perfect frame and everything, but I wanna use her as a jumper pony since she likes running and turning on a dime lol.
I have an MFT mare that I bought from my mom, so I could ride while I waited for Rose to grow up. I'm going to trail ride Gypsy after she has her foal and I would also like to try Competitive Trail with her. Rose is a Friesian/Appaloosa filly and I want to ride her in Dressage and Jumping. We picked the MFT's because they are gaited horses and very comfortable to ride and I chose Rose just because I like her
I think I'm a bit like Nirvanarider - I ride several different breeds as well. I don't own them but go to school them or work with them.
I own a TBxQH cross and a very new off the track standardbred. My cross has retired from higher level dressage and all jumping. He was a fantastic all around horse. I was very fortunate finding him- I got him when I was very young and knew little about horses. I just recently got my standardbred - the papers are still being signed! I was very surprised with her talent - I never knew a standardbred could look so promising in the field of eventing. She needs TONS of work but has so much potential. She will be my next event horse and I'm excited that she was an adoption as well. I highly suggest looking into standardbreds as well as off the track TBs if you find the intention of ever adopting.
