There really are more TBs out there than you might think. I show one on the A circuit. And I can think of half a dozen more off the top of my head, all showing in VA, in the jr's, ao's, adults. Here's mine:
I have two hunter bred TBs. One is my old hunter who always has showed at AA shows and the other is a youngster I'm bringing along and will start at the AAs this year. I also have a friend with my youngster's half sister that wins in the AA hunters consistently. Was reserve zone champion for 2012. Breed bias is silly. May the best horse win!
Probably because they are not "in fashion" at the moment and therefore going for lower prices. .
Which is not accurate, I have had TB's I sold re sell after a few years of successful showing for 6 figures....this is the year of the BIGGEST comeback and demand for TB's. I am a reseller and the phone has been ringing for quality lovely movers w/ the "Right" jump. Nice horses who have model potential...not just for "All" TB shows and classes but open competition.
Julie Winkles article has been taken to heart by alot of people, I even have judges looking for horses.
Mind you the "Right" TB because not all are going to cut it.
I recently put one up for sale and he was committed to PPE in less than 15 minutes on FB and went to a top level H/J barn!!!
