He's half quarter horse, half paint. But his parents are athletic reiners and halter horses. I bought him unbroke and wanna turn him into a jumper or eventer. But does his breed and breeding give him a chance? I don't want to waste my time or possibly his health if theres no chance.
Sorry for the rambling. Buts that what id like to know.
It is what you make it IMO.
I have some WB that have come from awesome jumper lines...and don't jump well.
I have had some QH's that have come from amazing barrel lines, and haven't done well.
It all depends on the horse.
And especially when a colour breed is involved, don't dismiss the fact that he may be a great jumper based on his coat pattern.
My friend currently does dressage w/her black and white perch/paint cross...and he is beautiful to watch
