Build the Perfect Ammie Eventing Horse
If you were to mix a perfect blend of breeds to create a hardy amateur eventing horse that has great bone, superior feet, just the right amount of muscle and power, yet decent speed, with a good mind and kind personality, what would you use?
I'm thinking a horse like Snowman, that ubiquitous grade horse that was used for just about everything back in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the one that had size and strength to work in a field, but was also light enough for riding, and who could and would go all day.
I'm envisioning no more than a quarter draft, maybe just an eighth -- maybe half thoroughbred and give me a dash of those strong saddlebred legs, or I could see standardbred in there. Maybe mix in a bit of Morgan for their endurance and extremely good feet.
What would YOU use?
