thoroughbred or warmblood?

soooooo I have been looking for some good athletic horse breeds. Because we figured out that my horse is actually 20 somthin years old! But he acts like a 2 yr old stallion. any who hampton is a TB but I need a bigger horse so what do you guys suggest (btw this is just for thinking)

If a horse likes it I like it.

Depends on your budget. In my area you won't find a warm blood cross for under 10,000

You mention a bigger horse, as in heavier built? I've seen some pretty stocky TB around. Also would a foundation QH possibly fit the bill for ya?

well.... hampton is 15.2 but I am 12 and 5.7 lol I was looking more along the lines of a skinner built horse that has all four gaits and can be pretty tall so it takes awhile to grow out of. Or never grow out of

There are certainly more breeds around than TB's and WB's!!
TB's can get very big and solid as well, they're not all short and fine.
As said above, a true WB (European lines, not draft x hotblood 'fake' WB) will set you back a pretty penny, and they are generally not recommended for young or inexperienced riders.

Why not look at a draft x?

I know a TB who is 17.2hh and built like a tank, so taller TBs are out there.

I do like Kayty's suggestion of a draft cross. Mine is 16.2hh as a coming-4yo and very athletic. Look up YouTube videos of draft crosses jumping. They can be just as athletic as the TBs and WBs.
