Default Clydesdale / quarter horse cross ???

Hi all

Myself and a few friends have been pondering this one for a while. In the horse sales mags there seems to be alot of people breeding Clydie/Quarter horse crosses. Does anyone have any idea on why this type of outcross?

Is it soley for temperament or performance? I can only imagine ending up with one heck of a chunky looking horse out of it but I could be wrong. Does anyone have one and what sort of riding do they use the horse for. Any thoughts??

I have only ever owned 1 Clydy 1/4 cross and he was a right bastard to break, could buck like nothing else, and was very handy with his back feet.

Having said that, once I got him sorted, he was one of the most sane and reliable horses that we have ever owned.

So they can be hard work, and not a cross that I would breed personaly. Not athletic enough for my tastes.

Yes I would have to agree with the two posters above.
Too chunky for my liking. Not a cross I would ponder on.

These days not all QH are chunky, alot are influenced by TB I wouldnt judge the cross itself, but the 2 individual horses being crossed.

I think Jessitrists mare is Clydie x Appy? and she is a gorgeous mare & type

You dont have to tell me Sass, we breed QHs, and mostly to TBs too!
JTs mare is also too rangy for me, I like em finer, and from memory the dam wasnt too big either, I could just imagine with a big QH mare x Clydie what the foal would be like....huge!

I bought Chickie because she is what I want, I am a heavier rider and dont like the niggling comments when I ride a fine horse. I picked the sort of cross I wanted before I saw Chickie, and she is perfect for me. I only plan on doing some bush riding, low level eventing and just hae fun with her. She is going to be with me for life, so when I chose her I didnt have to think of re-sale value. Her dam was a more thoroughbred type appaloosa though.

If I ever bred Chickie with intention of selling the foal I would breed her to a TB or WB to make a finer, more versatile horse.

A lot of Clydie croses are competing in eventing, hell, in all disciplines! Most are 1/4 Clydie.
