Does Your Horse Do Activities Not Typical for the breed?
Hello all--

I send out a little e-newsletter amongst my friends(Keeping up with whats going on in our local equine community, etc.) and I'm looking for small stories/examples of equine individuals participating in activities not typical for their breed

One example is my show-jumping/Cross-Country with my TWH :-P:-P:-P

Even if nobody was comfortable with me putting their story/example in my newsletter, I figured this would be a fun topic to start!

My TWH/QH cross is learning reining......

Well, to be honest, no. My TB and I Event, which is very typical for his breed. But, to be honest again, I would love to try Reining and Team Penning with him.

I do hunter/jumper with a TWH. She loves it so much..but lets say she likes to go fast...VERY fast!

I know a girl who is teaching her TB to pull a cart :)

I'm not sure if this is "not typical" since Arabs are pretty much used for everything, but my Arabian and I trail ride extensively...

i'm teaching my mustang reining and how to jump! not really sure if thats typical since mustangs are pretty versatile!

I am kinda in the same boat as Lilkitty. Not exactly sure what is typical for the mustang breed LOL. I have one that I ride on trails and do a lot of ranch type work with. He is one heck of a little crackerjack roping horse. He is the gray in my avatar.

i wish my 'stang could be used as a ranch horse.. but she is just too dang terrified of cows!

I rein with my MFT : ]

We also do LD rides and CTR, and I'm in the process of teaching her how to drive.

My Paso Fino's sire was a Versatility Plus Champion. He was Grand National Versatility Champion in 1993 and 1994 and Horse of the Year in 1991-1993. He won 12 National Championships and 8 High Point Awards. He was a three-time Georgia State Champion. He accumulated over 2400 show points, and he also jumped four feet, ran poles and barrels, drove, side-passed, did sliding stops and spins, and flying lead changes.

Pretty impressive for a breed that usually only gaits around an arena. His trainer was actually harassed by other Paso trainers because he dared to canter his horse!

I have pictures of him... I just need to find them. I'll come back with them in a few.

Feel free to use them in your newsletter : ]
