    I agree, It really depends on the horse and the training!=)

    I had a mare (probably APH/AQH) who was really a barrel horse at heart.. I used to lease and we were jumping 2'6". She was like 12, and was in moderate training.

    I personally do not thing training has anything to do with it. You can have a poorly conformed horse, and do all the training you can, but the horse still wont beable to do the questions asked well.

    Yes, training helps, of course training helps - but it doesn't make a horse who physically cannot do it, do it.

    Just beacuse 1 QH made it to Nationals in the Dressage World and placed top 5, doesn't mean any QH can do the same thing regardless of training. Just means that QH had the proper conformation to do the job it was being asked to do.

    Just because an Appaloosa can do Prelim in the Eventing World, doesn't mean any Appaloosa can do Prelim in the Eventing World - just means the horse had the right build to do so.

    Yes, training is a big part, so is heart - but you can have a horse with all the heart in the world and have the best training in the world - buuuuuut, if the horse isn't built right, still wont beable to do the sport you are asking it to do.

    I honestly feel that a few photos would help us give you a bit more advice. =]

    Mon Gamin, is not a paint. He's a pinto selle francais. I'm quite irritated that people keep thinking he's an APHA Paint Horse just because he's colored and short.

    My APHA boy free jumped three feet, no problem, a couple of years ago and I think he could go higher - but he's got a lot of thoroughbred influence just off his papers. The fact that he likes jumping just gives him an edge to keep doing it, and he loves a challenge.. He'll actually just plow through and trot over cross rails once you've gone over them a few times. 8\

    APHA offers the Paint Alternative Competition program, where you can earn points through different associations (barrels, USDF, USEF,etc).

    He will be perfectly suitable for lower level eventing. Give it a try!

    Paint is a "color" not a breed. Kinda like grey or roan,has nothing to do with the breeding,just the skin. Wish I could attach photos,have one of a paint that has every conformation fault in the world! But it is a pretty color and someone loves it. It is clean,fat and has a new halter..

    Paint is actually a breed. It has its own registry. Only certain horses can get into it.
