Okay, I was just wondering whether or not an Appaloosa can be a good jumper. I know they can jump. But I was wondering if their type would ruin their chances. Blu is a fewspot. And he is big for an Appaloosa, in my opinion, at 16.1hh...

Sorry that I keep asking so many questions about him. Thanks!

I don't see anything wrong with any type of horse jumping. An Appy should be able to jump with good conformation and what not.

Any breed of horse can be capable of being a great jumper.

With an Appy, you'll probably do ok with low-key shows and such, but usually alot of the bigger things are breeds more bred specifically for that.

You'd probably have more luck at a breed show, if your looking to really get into showing.

Of course, you always have a few "freaks" of the breed. =]
