the one advertised was a 13hh bucky nicley put together though, but like you say.. why?????

Probably because they're breeding Quarter Ponies. There is an Australian Quarter Pony Association based in Qld or NSW and Quarter Ponies are popular in America where they originated because people want the type & temperament of the QH but in miniature for children to ride.

So they can be hard work, and not a cross that I would breed personaly. Not athletic enough for my tastes.
I had a Clydie X TB that could buck like there was no tomorrow
I was Planning to jump with him but he didnt make height for me.
He was on the clydie side you wouldnt even know there was a TB in there! lol
But wow could he jump!!!!
Wouldnt hestitate to buy another Clydie but X a QH- dont think so lol

Not a good cross it may work but more often it doesn't as QH has heavy back in it lines. In fact they often breed this cross for buck jumping.

To cross with clydie it is speed on top strength on the ground, so in other words TB over Clydie.

Sharaway I would love you to come and see our Kids one day, they are pretty laid back horses

This Dissy a half bred




Buzzo and Sunrise 1/4 Clydie

I guess like all horses you buy what suits your purpose, I have a clydie cross quarter horse mare and a clydie warmblood colt.

This is my mare at approx 3 years old (06)
