In the next few months, I plan on buying another horse. I'd like to get into hunters or jumpers, and compete. I don't need a top of the line Hanoverian, as I don't plan on going very far (though if I do, that be great, and I could always get another horse later).
I don't care too much about the breed of horse. My only stipulation is it is something 15hh or larger (I am a tall rider, and my even taller boyfriend occasionally enjoys riding as well). What breeds should I stay away from in my search? I imagine drafts wouldn't be the best option (though half-drafts can be okay). I'd imagine gaited breeds are the same way.
Again, I do not have a specific breed I am searching for. I just want to know which ones I should exclude from my search, thanks :)
