I’m looking at a 3yo Dutch filly who is linebred 3x3 on Jazz (great-grandsire on both sides). I’ve seen references to the “Jazz temperament” am am wondering if anyone here has first hand experience with it, and if the 3x3 line cross is far back enough to not worry about it.
I’m not a pro, but I’ve been riding for over 20 years, competing up to 1.1m jumpers and 2nd level dressage. I’ve almost exclusively ridden OTTBs, including ones considered “hot” for a TB. I’ve gotten all of my horses green broke or track broke. I love a forward sensitive ride. I’m okay with the occasional happy buck and a little spookiness, but I want my horse to have a good work ethic and a sound mind.
The filly isn’t started under saddle yet, but is very pleasant to handle on the ground. I would plan on starting her myself under the guidance of my dressage trainer.
