All these things rely more on heart that conformation. Obviosly Conformation is improtant but as long as you take your time in starting him, he could be an all around nice horse!
The more he knows the easier it will be to market him when you go to put him up for stud.
Yes my mare is actually just like that :)
She is my all arounder, and I will use my colt for many things as well, but for a breeding stallion its good to have at least one event he can excel in to a much higher level. And I am hoping he turns out to be a champ in one event or another, because breeders today want to breed champion horses, not "meh" horses lol. At least with todayís market. But as for the jumping, unless he manages to hit 15hh I won't be doing that competitively with him. I like taller horses for jumping as a personal preference, and for the height and level I was hoping to go to 14.3hh probably wonít cut it.
Next horse I get will be a pinto coloured WB! Lol thatís my next goal horse wise haha.
Just wondering...your horse...is she named for Sonador off of Dreamer?
Lol I used to call my mare that ALL the time for a nick name XD Now I just call her T.
