    I've never ridden one, but I admire the Trakehner's jumping ability.

    Zweibrucker, a type of german warmblood. A good sweet breed, there are a lot that I know that are good hunter jumpers, dressage, and eventing horses.

    My show jumper is an Oldenburg. She has a fantastic temperament and just loves to jump. I have also ridden thoroughbreds who are fantastic jumpers.

    My little Welshie, bad feet and all, can clear my 4' pasture fence and has a beautiful, round jump with tight knees. I wish could jump her myself rather than watch in horror as she does it on her own... but I would totally get a Welsh X to jump with after seeing her. Ponies are fun.

    Money being no object, I would probably seek out a purpose bred warmblood. That might not be the most FUN horse though. There's something fun about bringing along a less traditional horse.

    I would love to do eventing with a Akhal-Teke or Teke cross! I love their temperaments and I know they are pretty good jumpers.

    As much as I do love and admire Warmbloods, I would never choose one over a good old fashioned Thoroughbred. Mine have had nothing but the biggest hearts and have been extremely athletic, plus their personality puts the warmbloods I know to shame! It's also interesting to note that the Thoroughbred was the number one breed at the rolex this year and is now becoming the favorite sport horse for hunter/jumpers. They are going to take over the world, and I am TOTALLY okay with that! :)

    It goes in cycles... TB's were popular before warmbloods, now they are again. If I were a high-level eventer, I'd want TB's.

    Funny I am the opposite. Personally I feel you just can't match the movement of a warmblood. This one horse at my barn, Diva(a warmblood) had the best movement I have ever felt, it is like riding on a cloud while eating candy. It's just so good! Also a lot of the time I ride in a smaller indoor ring and trying to control a thoroughbred in there while jumping is torture! I mean they are sweet though also the ones I know are very spooky. Though outside if we don't run into anything scary they are very nice and sweet!
