Discipline Specializations per Breed?

Postby EclipticEnd » July 2nd, 2022, 9:40 pm

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of which Breeds excel in which Disciplines?

I know that Arabians, for example, are good at Endurance. Thoroughbreds are good at Racing. Belgians excel in Logpull.

But what about Tarpans, Przewalskis, and the other beginner horse breeds? Is there anything in particular that they generally show promise in, or is it more of a case by case basis?

I imagine the build of a horse goes into this; light builds are better for Racing and heavy are better for Logpull, for example, but I'm not sure what medium builds do well in. Any insight would be welcome!

Mediums are often best at western disciplines. Depending on where they fall within that medium group and where their speed stat falls, they could do sprints as well. The same goes for the heavier end, the driving disciplines aren't out of some of their reaches, if their strength is strong.

Prze appear to do slightly better in the pleasure, trail and ranch... maybe. Tarpans however are nominal. They don't appear to be overall better in any one discipline. Although, they do seem to breed up fairly quickly for... dressage, I think.

Turks can usually handle poles as well as the other racing disciplines. Maybe barrels as well, but really haven't seen any in that one.

Caspians are rather untried overall, but appear to have a basis that could (theoretically) be breed into most of the mediums and light-weight disciplines.

NAB's are nominal. They can take up pretty much whatever you give them with a little body altering where needed.

That exhausts my knowledge of the AC breeds as they stand, with little or no alterations. :D
Oh, and shetlands are surprising up for tackling the driving disciplines regardless of their rather poor standards from the AC.

*Note: Any newbies reviewing this should take into account that when we're speaking about tackling these disciplines, this does NOT mean that an AC horse can compete in player-made competitions, regardless of being fully trained up. This only gives light into the possible hidden aspects of these AC breeds and what their overall or their hidden or some combination therein could explain to how the easiest or quickest breeding might result in a viable competition horse.
