I know what you mean. I was leasing a registered paint cross with thoroghbred mare and so she really excelerated in hunt seat, but I started riding her western for a while because I got kind of bored riding english all the time and she turned out to be a really good western horse. We actually placed pretty well in some shows. I was amazed because she definitely doesnt take after the paint side she is all thoroghbred. Its amazing what horses can do.
Her owner also didnt think she was a good trail horse but she did really well with me. I even took her to a trail clinic and she did awsome she went through water and even trenches.
So yeah free_sprtd
you never know until they grow up a little. I am waiting for my horse to grow up so I can see what he is going to excel at.
