In March 2010 we rescued a beautiful 18 month Percheron filly from possibly going to slaughter. With proper nutrition she has grown up and filled out. A breeder has looked at her and said she appears to be well bred and very nicely put together. All that and she is an absolute sweetheart! She will be heading to a training facility in January 2011 to start her driving training.

I have wanted a horse for a long time now and I decided awhile back that I wanted a Clydesdale and I am happy to have found out that they do make good riding horses. Hopefully I'll be able to get one someday and thank you for helping me get this information.

The above given information is not quite 100% true. I don't have any doubt that Francesca Kelly and Raghuvendra Singh are trying to promulgate and promote the Marwari breed. But we know this breed from 1973 and we are keeping them like Marwari This breed was made for War's so they are hot blood but they are Very Friendly horses they enjoy ridding and they love to travel long distance so people call them an Endurance Horse. They are very good Jumpers also But due to they hot mind rider needs a lot of patience to trained them for Jumping or Dressage. But they are very intelligent horses so they always try to use they own mind during time of schooling. Gaurav Joshi (World Youngster Trick Rider,National Champion Endurance Rider)

Could someone please tell me if TBs(thoroughbreds) or WBs (warmbloods) are better show jumpers, and who are better all-rounders? Thank-you, Olivia

    I think WBs are slightly better jumpers but they both make good all rounders. This is just from my own experiences though...
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-01-27
    If I understand the info correctly the throughbreds are bred from defined warmbloods for specific sport whether racing or jumping so I would go on the basis of what the actual pony is bred for. Thoughbreds are normally bred for a sport. All rounders in handling riding personality is dependent on ancestry and breeding. Easier to judge by the parental linage. Hope this helps.

    WBs=jumpers TBs=all-rounders
  • ed - 2012-02-15
    I am not sure on on who might be the better jumper but I now my throughbred trusts me and he would jump any thing I would ask him to and he would cross any river. I would hope I would know his limits.
  • shaby - 2012-08-20
    this is my opinion is that wb are better at show jumping and tbs are better at rounder
  • Anonymous - 2013-04-27
    TBs are often crossed with Irish Draughts to make Irish Sport Horses which are excellent all rounders and fantastic jumpers.
