Belgian Warmbloods?
 
I never hear anyone talking about them, so I have a few questions..

Does anybody know the market for them on the East Coast?

Any desirable stallions with remarkable lines? That you all know of.

If they can cross well with pony breeds? (like Welsh/TB is a good mix. Would this type of Warmblood x Welsh look good?)

Any information would be amazing. Thank you.

We had a really cool Belgian WB mare at our barn for quite some time, and I"ve seen a lot at shows. (usually jumpers) It's the same as every breed though, there are some great ones, some not so great. There's a market for any good quality horse that's well trained, east coast or anywhere. Any quality WB bred to a compatable and quality pony could produce a stellar foal. But it depends on what you're wanting out of the foal, the parent's conformation/attitude, etc. Crossing a pony with anything can be tricky IMO. A 14.3 horse has very little resale value and a hot jumper pony is just hard to sell if not more so. If I was breeding ponies I'd be looking at child friendly hunters. If I was looking for something to breed to my pony I'd wouldn't look at a specific breed, I'd be looking at a bunch of individual WB stallions that would be the most compatible with my mare.

I actually wanted to breed a WB mare to a Welsh pony. xD

Thank you for your information, it was helpful :)
