Welcome to the forum!

I'm afraid not since the QH is not known for the type of action that saddle seat requires. Saddle seat is more for gaited horses with high leg action. You would be much better getting a TWH and using that for everything.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I mean, you could put any type of saddle on a horse and ride it, but not everett type of horse can move correctly for a certain discipline. Saddlebred, morgan, arab, crosses of these, and most - not sure if all can - gaited breeds can show saddleseat. You could put the saddle on a qh, but it won't do you any good for any practice for saddleseat, even if you never show it. Jumping, dressage, wp, contesting, working cowhorse, hunt seat, maybe, but not saddle seat. Also, it's not only gaited horses who can do english pleasure (the saddleseat type).
