Any breed of horse can jump low levels, but when you start advancing to 3'0" and +, that's when conformation comes into factor.

Any horse who wants to do it, can do it. There is no "best breed" for the sport.

If you are just getting into Jumping, I suggest you find a horse who is a "been there done that" mount, so that you can focus on you and your abilities, and have fun, all the while gaining confidence and skills. So that when you are ready to move onto a new mount, you are fully capeable of taking on that challange.

Agreed :)

X2 on the agree. I got paints and I jump them 3 foot hunter. But goin on what MIE said they have almost perfect confo. They all out of national champ sires so confo and personality is a biggie for me. Your horse has to have that "want to" personality

^^ Not true. I've seen Warmbloods make aweful jumpers because they don't have the heart or the soul to do so. I've seen horrible TB's as jumpers and many other breeds - because they don't want to do it, or do not have the confo to do it....

Any breed can make good jumpers. Heck, I see Appaloosa's at Advanced Levels of Eventing, Appendix's and Arab X's. I've seen horses come out of the Kill Pens at auctions make exceptional Jumpers - breed has nothing to do with it.

I firmly believe, conformation, and heart/soul is the important factors to weigh in when looking at horses for whatever sport it is you do. Reining, Gymkannah, Eventing, Polo, WP, Gaming, Hunters, Cutting and the list goes on and on and on.

yes I understand that but on internataional level you rarely see a TB or an arab competing its usually irish sport or warmbloods, and with the experience I have had and in my opiuon they are the best breed which is why they are so popular in this specific category im not dis counting any other breeds but warmbloods are usually the favourite due to there sucsesful history in making it too the top.
