THIS. This article right here. I was laughed out of the damned room at college when I said I wanted to breed Thoroughbred Sport Horses that had never seen a track(and rescue those who had). LAUGHED.
Mind you, Fox Hunters STILL to this day ride Thoroughbreds. You wouldn’t see any of the fancy hunters we ride in the rings today out on a field. They’d break a leg or have a heart attack because the dog might eat them.
I love my Thoroughbreds, I will always ride and own Thoroughbreds even if I do find Warmbloods to be pretty animals.
Part of the problem is that the Thoroughbred horse is characterized by being ultra sensitive and many of our amateurs aren’t capable of riding with that much skill, the heavier ‘carthorse” Warmbloods put up with so much… mistakes that would send a TB out of his mind… In a sentance: WBs are more forgiving to ride and most top TBs demand a ‘pro ride’….And that is my two cents on the topic.
