I picked Selle Francais, but out of all breeds I would have to say Connemara. They might not be able to compete at high levels but they can jump amazing heights for their size. They had to be good jumpers to survive in the wild in Ireland.

I'm going to say Selle Francais because of Cor de la BryŤre. God I love that stallion.

Actually statistically speaking, the TB competes at more high level english events than any other breed of horse. Partially because they are more common, but also b/c they are quite versatile. There are tbs that have competed and won at the highest levels in the top three olympic equestrian sports - eventing, dressage, and show jumping.

Show jumping hall of fame alone has such TB greats as
Snowbound (winner of the first individual Olympic Gold Medal ever won by a U.S. Rider/horse)

Thoroughbred... hands down.

Especially considering that Thoroughbred breeding makes up 75% or more of all Warmblood breeding.

My friend has a 15.3hh mutt horse....... The last pure horse in him was at least four generations back. He jumps 5ft courses with no problem at all, and he could do higher, they just don't push him. I don't think breed matters too much as long as we aren't talking like akhal tekes or anything :)

Any horse with the right conformation+movement and the right temperament. That's always my favorite breed.
