Breed of great grand father's horse
This is King Hi. My great grandfather bought him in the 1930's for $6 on his way to slaughter and was later chosen to be on the Army Equestrian Team and compete in the Olympics for the US! I have been digging up some history on them lately and was wondering what breed y'all thought King Hi must be. I only have one decent picture, but I'll post some extras for fun :)
He just looks like a thoroughbred to me.
I'd agree - my bet would be at least mostly TB. He's got nice curves ;) and a very TB-set tail... just looks pretty classic big TB.
His face isn't structured like a thoroughbred's....
But his body seems TB.
He reminds me of a warmblood though. Just the shape of his face and the "heaviness" to his body.
But I am no expert.
Was King Hi the name he came with or was it given to him?
I vote TB or TB cross.

Great picture of his jumping. Very classic style - straight line from mouth to rider's elbow.
Is that your Great Grandfather riding?
His head almost looks andalusian like. He could be a Dutch WB? Awesome pics! I think I've seen the jumping pic before somewhere.
