Question Warmblood cross

HI guys,

Long time no post. I've been on the search for my next horse- and think I have found him. He is a warm blood x tb. 9 yrs old. He has really high wither but isnt sway back. He is a lil on the skinny side at the moment but has just been wormed and is getting his feet done soon. His feet are white , he has a bald face and is chesnut with four white socks. Overall he is a big oath of a fella and isnt conformationally perfect looking. But he is sound and is in good general health.

What I wanted to know was does a warm blood x have any traits that are health related that I should be on the look out for in comparision to other horse breeds? Sounds silly but I have never even contimplated owing one before. Please help.

I leased a Hano/TB cross for a year. He had been used for jumping before I got him, but really didn't have the conformation for it and had to be put on pasture rest for a while to heal up. The terms of my lease expressly forbid me from jumping him, though that didn't stop him from getting really excited every time someone else had jumps set up in the arena

Since you say your horse also has some conformational flaws, I'd just advise you to evaluate what he's really capable of and do your best to keep him within a safe margin. When in doubt, ask your vet's advice. That really applies to all horses, not just Hano/TB crosses

I'm not sure how much was his breeding vs. his individual personality (or because he was physically abused as a youngster), but he was super mellow 99% of the time, but that other 1% of the time... He could do some serious bronc-style bucking and had no qualms about doing it while I was on him, which resulted in promptly being off him...
