What are your thoughts on DHH and DHH crosses? Thoughts or experiences on how they are for hunter/jumpers?
I am currently horse shopping and feel like I am seeing a DHH epidemic! Never seen or heard much about the breed until a year ago honestly, so I do not know a lot. I keep seeing DHH crosses being advertised as “Dutch” “Harness Warmblood” too… Majority I see are crosses with TB, QH, Hanoverian, CSH, ASH, CWB, Clydes.
Just to add - I found a DHH cross I really like as a project. I’ve been passing on the ones that look very “DHH” as i’m not keen on the way most are built. but this one doesn’t look DHH at all and has very nice movement and very nice conformation. I am not much of a competitor, just want to enjoy riding for fun now and do some shows here and there. I jump 1.10-1.25 at home, occasional bigger as singles or oxers but I have no desire to compete or do anything bigger at all. Would a DHH cross be suitable for what I wish to do? Again i don’t know a lot about the breed at all!
