Clyde/TB crosses do not sell for much in my neck of the woods. They stay at about the same monetary value because people prefer warmbloods to draft crosses, so chances are you won't end up making much money - in my experience anyways.
Just a couple of things:
- Remember to compare like horses - a horse can be 16.3hh and utter garbage or 16.3hh and spectacular, just going off height alone won't give you an accurate represenataion of what you could expect from the horse - other factors include, but are not limited to, conformation, breeding, training, show experience, temperment, sex, etc etc.
For example, this Clyde/TB cross will not ever be comparable to the QH Hunter Under Saddle horse; they are completely different types of horses - you will not see a Clyde cross winning HUS anytime soon.
- A draft cross with a TB is not a warmblood; warmbloods are set breeds now, they are not a "type." I see this mislabeling happen quite frequently. Hanoverians, Holsteiners, Dutch Warmbloods - these are just a few examples of the warmbloods that are breeds out there. Any draft crossed with a TB will not give you a warmblood :)
Best of luck in your decision! I do not intend for this to come across as mean, just informative :)
