I have found that Warmbloods, Thouroughbreds, and even QHs jump really well!

Its more than just a PASSION ~ itís a LIFESTYLE

i would also say thoroughbreds they have the speed, agility and are very quick thinking which is good in a jump off

Welshies and Connemaras are excellent jumpers and although they're on the small side I suppose I've seen some very tall Connemaras x TB which are fast and can jump.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Any Warmblood breed, anything that's got Irish Draught somewhere in it's bloodlines, Selle Francais, any of the German breeds ...

The breed has little to do with it, it's their style, willing, and most of all heart for it. How many people do you think said that Teddy would never jump higher than Training level at most, but he went the the Pan-Am games and medeled!
