    Okay, I'm looking at this Quarter Horse cross and he has these big Draft/Mustang hooves. He's only about 14.3-15hh, but I'm pretty sure he might be a Draft x Quarter Horse. He seems to have some speed, but I'm just worried that it might be a bit more difficult for him to do speed events with...
