    Default Non-Warmbloods showing Grand Prix level?

    Hello:

    Is anyone aware of any horses who are NOT warmbloods that are currently showing at the Grand Prix level?

    I've found 3 in the current standings for Dressage Horse of the Year. 2 of which are Andalusians or Lusitanos, and the third is a Lipizzaner.

    The rest of the currently 69-spot list are of various warmblood registries.

    As a caveat, these are only the horses that have enough scores to rank, and have a median score above 60%, so there's naturally going to be some number left off that list.

    The list at the end of the show season (i.e. October) should be more inclusive.

    Pick up the USDF Yearbook - there are always horses of many breeds at the FEI levels. Tbreds, Friesians, Morgans, Andalusians, Lusitanos, Arabians, etc.

    Currently the welsh cob stallion, North Forks Brenin Cardi is showing grand prix. I believe he made his debut earlier this spring.

    Galanta is an Irish Draught Sport Horse showing GP, Steeped in Luck is an Irish Draught currently at Intermediate.

    There are some other Irish Draught Sport horses out there and I know I've seen one listed as an American Warmblood rather than an IDSH

    Silva Martin has a OTTB (I think he raced) named Sea Lord that was doing GP last year.

    Well if we're going to reach back to the recent past, Nancy Hinz competed the Welsh Cob stallion Kentchurch Chime to grand prix as well. Patty Montana competed the Welsh Cob gelding Gerrig Quest through at least I-1.

    I don't mean to pick on the OP, but why must we have this same thread every month ? I'm genuinely curious why it matters. Maybe we need a sticky that "Yes, some non-Warmbloods do get to Grand Prix" So what? We ride the horse we have, not somebody else's

    Most recently she's had Audacity, who is a TB/Morgan cross; his sire is a Morgan she rode previously to 4th level, EM-Jac's Tenacity. I think she has Audacity up for lease or sale, but I am not sure.

    Actually, I don't think I've seen a thread like this before. This one is simply a list of non-WB GP horses, without the argument about whether non-WBs are capable of GP. It's quite a breath of fresh air!

    I will add West Mtn Winston, a Morgan stallion, to the list.

    Quietann, see the link I posted.
    Discobold, the discussion would be much shorter if one asked what non-warmbloods were recently competitive on the regional, national or international levels.

    Balagur did the most recent Olympics and he is an Orlov Trotter.
    (Unless I am missing something and that's actually a warmblood.)

    We just had a photo shoot at my ranch - two horses there were GP horses, my own Friesian/WB cross stallion and an Arabian. Waiting for all the pics - but fun stuff, piaffe by the pond, pirouettes in a field of flowers, extended trot through the meadow
