I couldn't agree more! I show on the A circuit and there are tons of fancy QH's that jump well and look great! Sure, for some of the upper level jumping a warmblood or tb type might be more suitable, but for where you are now a QH (or any willing athletic well built horse) should do just fine. Plus, QH's come in all sorts of shapes and sizes these days. I've seen some that look exactly like WB's, TB's, and someone even said welsh pony!
