I frequently hear people refer to a horses body type when discussing what discipline a horse would be best suited for. Obviously this makes sense, but since I’m just getting into the great land of sport horses and breeding can someone explain what makes a certain body type good for which sport? (in general, I’m sure the nitty gritty details could go on forever) Since most horse compete in multiple sports what makes one best suited for more than one vs. better for only a particular discipline?
If someone knows of a reliable site with images/pictures that I could go to, that would break some of this down, that would be great (I’m a very visual person). I thought the COTH forum would be a great place to get some real life info as well since there are always those horse that break the standard.
