View Full Version : Who's showing a QH/APHA over fences? Bloodlines?

I was having a discussion with a friend last night and she was wondering which QH bloodlines are the best for hunters and then hunters vs. jumpers. I really am only familiar with the QH lines for chasing cows (by far the most popular here) and had no idea, but now I'm curious! So I'm wondering (assuming you are or used to jump a QH):

What are the horse's bloodlines?
What are you showing/schooling? (in other words, what height)
How tall is the horse?

I have recently seen a few really cute "stock" horses over fences
(they really were ranch-type horses). Unfortunately, they all seem to max out around 2'9"-3'. So I'm wondering if anyone knows of certain bloodlines/breeding that are better than others over bigger fences? I think these horses were simply limited stride-wise (not that tall) to some extent.

Would love to see pics!!

Well, mine's a paint--does that count?? He is by a California-bred stallion, On Ice. He is not "typey" looking in his conformation and can easily do 3'3". Temperamentally better suited to jumpers and medals.

My new horse is an OTQH. I am not sure of his bloodlines. He is just shy of 16 hands, and his last owner showed him in level 1-2 jumpers. He has step (when he doesn't get excited & boingy) to do hunters/eq, but his heart is truly jumper. I will be doing smaller jumpers to start with, but hope to eventually move up - he's my teacher.

My old mare (now DD's horse) is also QH - much more stock type. She's out of racing lines - Bugs Alive in 75 is grand-sire. She is more limited in scope and definitely in step, but has a heart that won't stop.

Yes, paints can play too! I should revise the title.

I had a breeding stock paint once, but he was a terrible jumper (jumped like a deer with his forearm straight down). Total doll though. Does your paint have "paint?" You must post pics now, you know ;)

I've been lucky to show two QH's :) Sadly, I don't know their bloodlines, sorry.

First is 'Teddy' - a lovely hunter, with a fabulous personality. He's won ribbons in the Children's Hunters WEF, HITS etc. No one ever guesses he's a QH
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30064284&id=1107720108

Second is 'Princess'- a jumper mare who was only 6 when I rode her, and took her in her first horse show. She was brave and fast, but just didn't understand the concept of a jump-off ;) (She didn't like to stop and the have to start again) But she was a sweetheart and I wish I could have bought her, because she really only liked having 1 rider :)

TTP- no, he's a sad disappointment to his breeders, as dad is a loud liver chestnut overo, but he is a roan with four socks and a small blaze. The only photos I have of him are with my fat butt the focus--a saddle fitting photo I wish would go far, far away.

Hopefully, we'll get to play at the big shows this summer in the jumpers and get a shot or two. He has great form, is handy and a total packer. Takes a joke and keeps on truckin'! He was my 40th birthday gift to myself :lol:.

My racing-bred 15.3 hh Appendix competed in the 4' jumpers and schooled 4'6 courses easily. His reg. name is Disco Sunday Deacon. Here he is earlier in life: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/1120923220053911905xRJBMM

I also showed a Zippo Pine Bar granddaughter in the jumpers. She was 14.2 but a lovely and competitive C/A jumper. Her name was My Precious Zipper. I don't have any good pics of her uploaded, but here she is schooling at home: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/1120948262053911905aByRvq

Edited to add: oh, here's a much better pic of her showing (note the noseband with reins! She was SO easy to ride): http://pets.webshots.com/photo/1297924403053911905lBEeBp

I also started a lovely Zippo-bred quarter horse in the Pre-Green Hunters for a client when I was training. He was 16.2 or 3 and a fabulous jumper and mover. I think he does breed shows now. His name was Zipt with Pleasure: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/1120943176053911905DqMtFC

I love quarter horses -- they have so much heart. I showed several others but all my best photos are not digital. Sigh. Someday I will get around to converting them.

You can use the names above to find their exact breeding.

I have a student with an Appendix QH mare who's bloodlines are basically "non-descript", she shows in the youth O/F classes as well as the under saddle and EQ classes at the QH shows and she does some hunter and 4-H showing as well. The mare is 15.2, but not "stock type" at all, you can see her here: www.shawneeacres.net/students.htm , she is the third hrose down, HVF Evening Attire. I have another adult student with a black/white overo paint who is showing in local hunter shows O/F and going to start some "C" shows. The horse can do 3' and has shown over that, but this rider is too much of a novice yet to do much more than 2'. She is the next horse down on that page, "Feels Like Redemption", although that is not his registered name. All I really know is his sire is a hrose named "Cinemax", he is 16 hands. The horse at the top of that page, "Dare Too Dream" is also a reg. QH mare, she is a large pony, 14.1 1/2 and shows in "C" shows in SS and will start doing soem QH shows this year. She is all "foundation" type QH bloodlines. She has shown up to 2'9" with previous owner and could easily do 3'. The horse on that page named "Elegance in Detail" has shown some over fences, but she is no longer doing that, the mare jsut really didn't seem to like jumping much.
Also towards the bottom of the page is "Master Go Zippo" who is a registered app and a packer over 2', he is 20 so we don't jump higher than that. He is mostly QH bloodlines
At the bottom of the page is a large pony reg. QH that is all reining horse bloodlines, she is green O/F but a cute mover, she is 14.1 1/2. Can also see her here: http://www.shawneeacres.net/juana.htm

This horse is by a reg. appendix QH out of a reg. appendix QH but cannot be registered because both parents are Appendix, he is green but has shown at Sedgefield "C" and was reserve champion, he is 16.1 hands:
http://www.shawneeacres.net/emerson.htm

I myself have a 17.2 hand (yes really!) appendix QH gelding that is all racing bloodlines, haven't yet shown him QH O/F but he is a nice 3' hrose and could probably do more if someone wanted to.

I'm just starting to show my QH over fences, but he loves it. Definitely has the step and the look, we're just in the process of getting my abilities caught up with his! I don't have any great pictures as of yet, but hope to soon with our upcoming show at the end of January. He will be showing in the Novice Amateur with me, and in the Open with my trainer which the Senior Working Hunter, I believe, is 3'6".

Bloodlines wise, he is definitely pleasure bred. His full brother is a western pleasure stud overseas.

As you can see, all quarter horse.

He is 16.1 and wears an 82" blanket. Not the tallest in the barn, but one of the biggest with all his muscle and bone.

Ignore my face, I was sick and trying to breathe!

I have a filly by APHA jumper The Spotlight. He is known for producting very nice hunters, jumpers, eventers, etc. Nice movement and BIG correct jump. He crosses very nicely with TB mares. One of the other students that rides with my trainer has another Spotlight/TB cross mare, and she is now competing at Training Level as an Eventer (3'3"), and hoping to go Prelim.

I hear the Skys Blue Boy offspring do well over fences.

My paint is 16hh and built like a tank show both hunters and jumpers and now that we've got his flat work better his jumping is round and tight. He wears an 82" blanket and a 56" girth. His bloodlines are Jetta Stingray x Broadway McCoy, nothing really special mainly western pleasure and a few foundation quarter horses thrown in. He was trained to be a nice western pleasure pony until they got to working with his canter hehe he's a big ol' boy with a big canter.

We have a 16.3hh AQHA gelding that is not a daisy cutter but works well in eq and dressage. He's got Go Man Go, and Sonita bloodlines. Making him a 96% foundation gelding.

My little mare is "technically" a solid Paint, but she is out of a QH mama and has QH all over her pedigree. She's just a hint over 15 hands and I've actually found her to be an excellent jumper.

We've schooled up to 3'9" (one time thing) but regularly school 3'6". She's shown up to 3'6" jumpers and she won the local year-end championships at 2'6", with a reserve in 3' and 3'6". But 3'6" is her max, which I'm happy with, since we stick mostly to the local shows.

As for bloodlines, she's out of the Impressive line on her dam's side and her sire is Ima Poppin Rascal, although most of his offspring compete in the western events, so he's not exactly revered as a producer of good jumpers.

Will find a picture soon...on my new laptop which has none of the hundred something pictures of Poppy. She's such a cutie over fences and hot stuff in the jumpers (my trainer likes to joke that her QH butt lets her sit and turn, which is why she wins) ;)

My husband showed my breeding stock paint mare in low and high C/A... The great thing about QH/Paints in jumpers is that they can turn on a dime! Almost never lost! The downside is that she is maybe.. 15h1... my huband is 6'3"...

He bought her for me as a coming 2 year old. He trained her. She was a little much for me. I wanted a dressage horse. Zelda/Emma now lives in central Florida and has a wonderful owner that is all of about 5'2"! :D

http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t282/rodeck816/alexandzelda.jpg
Her registered name is Bar Money Blues. Doc Bar (because every friggin' QH in Iowa is Doc Bar) and Blue Max... not the best combo, but she was a rockstar over fences!

I have a full quarter horse that use to be western and inhand but i converted to english about 6 years ago. He is a direct son of Zippo Pine Bar and his dam is Connie T. Payso. I am showing him this year in either Schooling or Training Hunter. He has been schooled at home at 3 foot. However last august he was diagnosed with string halt. He is almost better now. So we are going very slow to get him jumping again. But before he got string halt he was a pretty talented jumper. Unfortuently they I dont have any pictures sorry. He is 15.3 hands tall. Hes pretty fancy too for a quarter horse. LOL I feel like i am bragging sorry but I love him dearly. = )

A barnmate has two QH that she shows over fences both on the AQHA circuit and the A circuit. The gelding is by Artful Move and the mare is by Skys Blue Boy. Both are multiple AQHA World Champions.

I am just starting my APHA mare over fences, she has Jet Deck and Far Ute Keno lines, and is a great all around horse. I had 2 other APHA mares as a kid, one with Far Ute Keno lines that did the little stuff ( less than 2'), and a Doc Bar bred mare that toped out at 3'.

Oh dear, I shouldn't but cannot resist.

All Quarter Horse except for all those TB crosses in there. Back aways but you got multiple crosses with the Jockey Club registered TB Three Bars(who also sired TB stakes winners) and I also see Jaguar-by Custus Rastus TB, Jet Colonel TB, and Moon Deck by Top Deck TB. may be aways back but there is alot of it on almost all family branches.

We have had this come up before...the AQHA and APHA horses successful over fences 3' or better are pretty heavy on the TB influence.

My horse is still green but he is an OTQH (so appenidx and heavy on the TB) and I am happy to brag about him :D.

We have schooled up to 3'9" and showed up to 3'6" though mostly 3'-3'3". we do jumpers and dressage. (Right now we are really working the dressage and the gymnastic exercises and poles and such with the hopes of really improving our jumping work, so please forgive my bad eq...they were before I had any lessons).

Schooling 3'9" for the first time (http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m472/valeskadavis/vs1045.jpg)

imho once we get his back engaged more and I get my Eq improved we will do much better.

Go Man Go was by Top Deck TB out of a mare who was, herself, by a TB. leaving GMG with only a single QH grandparent, tail female line.

If you want to study bloodlines and their influence on performance, you need to be very honest about those bloodlines.

The answer to OPs question about what bloodlines do well would seem to be the Bars line and Top Deck just looking at the offered pedigrees. They all have at least one of them in common. Even the appendix right above this post-TB on top and to Moon Deck by Top Deck TB on the QH side.

Wow, again it's aways back but you got Mahmoud (a French TB who was imported and stood in the states for awhile) on both the TB and the "QH" side.

My AQHA gelding does the hunters. Currently shows pre green 3'3, schooled 4'3 with a lot potiential to go higher but was not in that kind of shape. I plan to take him through the greens then turn him into a jumper because he's very scopey. He's canadian bred. I put him on this website a while ago under his registered name http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/man+go+altier . I'm not really familiar with quarter horse lines, so maybe my guy is just an odd ball.

While it is certainly true that lots of great-jumping quarter horses can be traced back to the TB, to me that is a bit of a straw man because virtually ALL quarter horses can be traced back to the TB. The quarter horse descended in large part from TBs, crossed with Arabs and mustangs/Barb descendants. Many of the "foundation" quarter horses are in fact TBs (like Three Bars, who is in virtually every QH pedigree somewhere back there -- sort of like the AQHA version of Nearco).

Consider my Zippo Pine Bar descendant above -- she is a classic WP-bred and was quite successful as a WP horse. She could jog and lope like there's no tomorrow. She could also jump as well -- I regularly jumped her 4'6, which is no small fence for a large pony. While there is TB in her pedigree way back there, she does not look like a TB in any way. She looks like a quarter horse.

I have one my daugher has shown very successfully in both the QH circuit and the USEF circuit. He is successful at the 3' to 3'6". He is a registered QH, but actually is 7/8 TB. His sire (who I also raised) was also very successful in both circuits and was a USEF Hunter Champion or Reserve at l0 out of ll shows as a 4 yr old.

I also have a paint who I raised who is very successful in the over fences, as well as many other events.

Here's the 7/8 TB doing a 3'6" course. I'll try to post others too. He's for sale too. See www.fieldstonefarm.com for information.

Sorry, meant to say close up in his bloodlines. I do agree with fordtraktor to say that most every quarter horse will go back to a thoroughbred at one point in time. I was just stating that mine was a few generations back, not a 7/8 appendix that you see these days, not that there's anything wrong with those of course! I just wanted to clarify, not trying to start anything

I have had one full quarter horse and one appendix who were both western pleasure rejects - turned hunters. Both had Barpassers Image lines (one a son of, and one g-daughter by A Special Assignment). I love the Barpasser lines! I had both only briefly before they got sold. The full qh did the 3' hunters with me and the appendix did the 2'6 baby greens.

I have a APHA gelding with outstanding jumping form. He is around 15.2h and is a so-so mover. We showed lightly in the AA hunters last summer and he is being leased as a children's hunter this year. I think he has plenty of step and jump to do the AOs or small juniors in another year or so.
I know nothing about his bloodlines, but he did western pleasure before my barn got his as a three or four year old and he sired a few WP babies.
Here is his pedigree: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/atreyu2

I have one my daugher has shown very successfully in both the QH circuit and the USEF circuit. He is successful at the 3' to 3'6". He is a registered QH, but actually is 7/8 TB. His sire (who I also raised) was also very successful in both circuits and was a USEF Hunter Champion or Reserve at l0 out of ll shows as a 4 yr old.

I also have a paint who I raised who is very successful in the over fences, as well as many other events.

Here's the 7/8 TB doing a 3'6" course. I'll try to post others too. He's for sale too. See www.fieldstonefarm.com for information.

I'm just starting to show my QH over fences, but he loves it. Definitely has the step and the look, we're just in the process of getting my abilities caught up with his! I don't have any great pictures as of yet, but hope to soon with our upcoming show at the end of January. He will be showing in the Novice Amateur with me, and in the Open with my trainer which the Senior Working Hunter, I believe, is 3'6".

Bloodlines wise, he is definitely pleasure bred. His full brother is a western pleasure stud overseas.
http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/hitting+on+four
As you can see, all quarter horse.

He is 16.1 and wears an 82" blanket. Not the tallest in the barn, but one of the biggest with all his muscle and bone.

Ignore my face, I was sick and trying to breathe!

Hi, I have a 10-year-old palomino Appendix gelding who competes in working hunter & driving, is a World Champion & Top Ten at Congress. Everything is easy for him, I think he illustrates some of the best things about Quarter Horses with tremendous athleticism, versatility, & temperament.

He is Appendix and is primarily "race-bred". His sire is a stakes-winning son of Dash For Cash & out of a Go Man Go mare.

My gelding's dam (who raced & barrel raced) was by Paavo (TB) out of a more foundation-bred mare.

Glad to see so many happy QH hunter owners out there!

Go Man Go was by Top Deck TB out of a mare who was, herself, by a TB. leaving GMG with only a single QH grandparent, tail female line.

If you want to study bloodlines and their influence on performance, you need to be very honest about those bloodlines.

The answer to OPs question about what bloodlines do well would seem to be the Bars line and Top Deck just looking at the offered pedigrees. They all have at least one of them in common. Even the appendix right above this post-TB on top and to Moon Deck by Top Deck TB on the QH side.

Yes, I should have worded that different I realize GMG is an appendix, but my guy has enough foundation in him (Sonita) to be the 96%.

I have a Tri Color Tobiano APHA gelding, Gunters Illusion, ("DannyBoy") that I was doing unrecognized BN level eventing with. We always did OK, but sort of came to the realization that Danny is never going to have a command of the dressage ring lol. Just this past year started doing the USEF rated jumper shows, as this is really where our hearts are. Schooling 3', showing 2'6". We were having a really good year when he injured his suspensory (paddock incident).

He has a lot of heart, loves to work, and will pretty much jump anything we put in front of him. Around the barn however, he is quite the b-breaker!

There are a couple of pictures of him on my COMH page. Also a little story about him on my COMH blog called "Charlie Hustle".

My boy is reg. QH (white papers) but there is LOTS of TB in there. He raced lightly, so I assume that is what he was bred to do. I know absolutely nothing about QH bloodlines, so if anyone has any info, I'd love to hear it! Here is his pedigree http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/sea+pop
He is mostly a dressage horse these days, but he is tons of fun to jump too. This pic is from the first time I jumped him when I first got him. Go easy on my eq-- it was the first time I had jumped in 10+ years!

Yes, he is 100% racing quarter horse bloodlines. The Beduino horses were some good performers, Duplicate Copy horses also. I kind of remember Ettabo was fairly good looking,

My horse Stanley is a registered Quarter Horse (registered name Prince of Iron). His sire is Ironmaker who is out of Iron Rebel and Iron Maiden. He also has Zippo Pine Bar in his bloodlines.

I am very excited to start showing him in the spring. He learns very fast and he is a very sweet horse.

He is currently being trained to jump and he is being taught his lead changes. What I like about him is that if you say whoa he stops on a dime. Must be the western training. He is well train with voice commands.

Here is are pictures of him:

I had an appendix QH hunter that I went up to 3'6" schooling. I was too scared to go higher! He had the ability. He was 16.1 hands and built more like a TB. A Thoroughbred shares his AQHA registered name, and on allbreedpedigrees, it only showed the TB. Here's Prince Pleasure (AQHA)'s bloodlines:

By Pleasure Boy (TB) http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/pleasure+boy

Out of AQHA Princess Garnett, by Garnett Chick, by Triple Chick, and out of PE EI Girl by Bull It by Spotted Bull (TB).

I also had an AQHA jumper that my trainer would school at 5' and jumped even higher. He was not an attractive mover. He was Impressive bred on the top, and Bar Deck on the bottom. He was 16.1 hands.

I had another who was more of a hunter, but one of those that wouldn't have gone higher than 3'. He's also not on allbreedpedigrees (a Paint shares his name!), but he was by Highway Hustler, who went back to Do Do Chick, and out on an own daughter of Do Do Chick. He was 15.2 hands.

I guess I will play...

Here is my guy...

Jus Passed My Zipper aka Spanky. He is a 9yo QH gelding that is regular registery but goes back heavily to Three Bars through his WP breeding.
http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/jus+passed+my+zipper
His sire, Passing It Along is a full brother to Barpasser's Image who is the sire of Invitation Only. My guy shows in the 3'6" jumpers and I have jumped him up to 4' and had someone else jump him 4'6". He is so scopey he just lopes over them.

Here is some pics of me eventing him also... we have competed up to Training level and if I could get time to get us both fit, we could easily move to Prelim.

We had him qualified for the QH World this year but he strained a muscle around his SI joint, so we didn't get to make it but he is going great again. Don't know if I will get to show much this year as I am getting married in April and most of my free money is going towards that but next year we are going to try to qualify again.

I am showing a young (5 yr old) TB that is also a paint, he has white on a cheek and a splotch of white that is hidden under the girth and big white stockings.
He is very tractable with the occasional outburst of green silliness. Every time we take him to shows someone asks about his breed. How boring to answer TB ;) I just liked him when I saw him, more important than his unusual markings was a horse with good conformation and athletic ability. I think his sire is a TB of Irish decent. Regardless he is a sweet natured and forgiving of his amateur's mistakes and on a good day when they hit all the right spots they win. :)

Billy Elliot is a super cute one. Hes appendix, not very big, maybe 16.1 at the tallest. I think he was supposed to be a barrel racer or something. I dont have his pedigree on me.

Sneak Preview (HUS TB stallion) babies all seem to have great minds, and jump and move quite well. Ive seen them be competitive in the rated divisions.

All For Free (also a TB), has some great QH babies out there who can really jump. Some foals there are Free Preview, and more recently Twothousand Model Te (might have spelled that wrong), who did very well in the baby greens when he was getting started, and went on to win this past years AQHYA Worlds Jumper class, and got reserve in the Eq o/f, and 3rd in the Working hunter.

Coats N Tails is the sire of the prospect that I had. Hes a really easy going fellow. He didnt have the best trot, but his canter is a 10, and he jumps so flowingly. He easily could jump the 3'6 and just lope down the lines. His mom was full tb.

I've been showing her for 4 years and we're working our way up in height. (she could do higher, it's me being a chicken) This summer we'll be showing at 2'6" although she jumps that 3' (likes to overjump)

Her breeding: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/rebels+pride+and+joy

If I bought one of his babies would I magically be able to ride like you, lol? ;)

Is he standing at stud?

YES and YES! He jumps so perfectly out of stride, equitation just happens for me. I'm showing him at WEF 7, 8, and 9 if you want to see him go!

His owner stands him at Fresh Start Farm. http://www.freshstartfarm.com/

His stud fee is $1250. He is an elite AWR stallion and of course AQHA. I think you can breed him to a TB and still register it with AQHA and AWR. All his babies have saintly QH brains just like him.

I have a reg Paint (solid) mare that I will be showing in the 3ft hunters & jumpers & moving into the 3ft3 jumpers by the end of the year. We did 2 hunter shows last year & won champion at one, so I was very very pleased with how she started out. (her pic is on my profile).

She's out of R Chocolat Bar and R Zippo Star. R Chocolate Bar is out of Polly Shoe Shine & Oakalla (QH) and R Zippo Star is out of Cowboy Bandit and Zippos Duster Two (QH).

Dolly has taken to jumping very well & is much easier to train than my hanno mare was! :lol: She's also brave & has a nice, even, rhythmic stride & makes it down lines easily (even though she's only 15-1). I'm really looking forward to the show year!

I have an Artful Move baby. Previous owner did the AQHA with him (up to 3'6", I believe) and he has points from Congress.

We've had an interesting 4 years (since I bought him... he sustained a hip injury and then colic surgery just this past year) so I haven't done a ton and have only showed local.

I'm doing the piddly Hunter stuff along w/ dabbling in Eventing. But have had more competent riders on him and he's got a really nice jump. We are working on the Dressage. He gets it... I'm figuring it out. :lol:

I love him to bits. Best of both worlds to me. He looks like a TB w/ a splash of QH. And has a lovely mind.

Shawnee: Yes same horse! Ron sent him to us for O/F training when he was about 5. I showed him as an ammy in the 2'6 stuff and my trainer showed him in the Baby Greens (as well as the AQHA stuff when she had time). He is a cool cool horse. The mare is really neat too, she never really loved the AQHA stuff (has loads of points in the rail classes), but she really took to over fences. A kid at our farm leased her, and showed her at the NCHJA AA show in the childrens hunters and got top ribbons.
