The Cornucopian Cavalcade.
Hey there i'm Sara, i'm 20 and Horses are, have been and always will be one of the most important and meeaningful parts of my life and thats why i'm dedicating this blog to them. I started taking lessons more that 12 years ago and right now I have a full lease on a lusitano dapple gray horse named Candido. I have him since december 2013 and i have to say i love him to death. I was studying in germany and was diagnosed with depression and bullimia so i had to go back home to get treatment and at that point he came in to my life and has helped me so so much ever since. I owe him so much. I'm a plus size rider and I want to show the world (maybe more like show myself) that yes we can, because being fat doesn't make us inferior. Ask me anything literally anything. I'm very calm and open minded and I have done quite a lot of things. And please please please if you want to ask me something personal go off-anon. I really have no problem answering personal questions but I don't like to post the responses. Please ask me anything off-anon I promise I won't judge you or get mad at you or anything even if it's a rude question ;) Submit me pictures of you and your horses whenever you want!

Opinions please! Could a stock type quarter horse become an ok jumper?
I wonder if a stock type quarter horse (not appendix), that mean a bit of a heavier horse, but nothing like a halter type quarter horse that resemble a fight bull, could be trained to be an ok jumper? Lets say to jump decently courses up-to 2.3ft.
I’ve come across a breeder of quarter horses, that’s have the characteristics of the horse I’m looking for, they are pure bred, but as I said they are not the supper lean kind of quarter horse you see in the hunter rings.
In my opinion I think it wouldn’t be too much to ask, and I think a stock type quarter horse could be trained to be a decent jumper of small courses, it’s not like I’ll be trying to turn it into the next hickstead, I’m not stupid. I’m not saying all quarter horses are born natural jumpers, but I’m from the thought line that every horse can be taught to jump, but not all horses can be good jumpers
What I would be doing with this horse, would only be a bit of dressage, a bit of jumping, but only for recreational purposes, no showing. Just a horse to enjoy.I’ve only ever worked with hunter tipe or appendix quarter horses so that’s why I would like to hear what I have to say.
So opinions please?
