Quarter Horse/other? Jumping ability?

I have a 9/10 year old quarter horse gelding. He is 15.3 and he recently just went to his first show in walk trot. He is not registered so I am not certain if he is true quarter horse. His previous owner said he was good on trail, but he is a nighmare! So I was thinking she could have lied about anything else? ( trail isnt a big deal because I didnt buy him for that anyway, but I would have liked a break from the arena :/ )

I was wondering if he could be a mix of anyother breed, and could possibly have the jumping ability to be in hunters. On the flat and over fences. I am recently jumping him 1'6 but he has gone higher but for right now he is still green over fences. He pops over them and sumtimes rushes. By the pictures, do you think he could make it in the hunters? I only wanted to show him 2'feet at local schooling shows and the local tristate. Any sugestions?

I do not see any photos.


There are lots of very fancy hunter/jumpers that are QHs so him actually being a QH does not make him not a good candidate.


Edit to add - I can now see one under saddle photo.

I am sure if he enjoys it you will do fine doing 2' local show level stuff.

He definitely looks like he could be appendix quarter horse which is a thoroughbred/QH mix. I think he would do great in other disciplines!

thank you :) I was thinking that because he is not very stocky, and his head and face are longer than a pur quarter horse. I have a better picture that someone thought he was a warmblood. I will put that up.

Most horse are capable of jumping 2 foot. From the pics he needs to learn to carry himself a little longer/lower and on the bit to pin well. With more undersaddle time I'm sure he will make a great local hunter. Work on a lot of flat work and your courses will come together.

QH these days come in all shapes depending on what they were bred for. He does have a "stock horse" hind end... might be a QH/TB or even a QH/Morgan. Grade horses are just as good as registered.
