Lightbulb Lazy Plod or Speedy Beast?

A Lazy Plod that knackers your legs out

depends on what type of riding I was doing. Would they be something you could train out of it? If so - i'd chose the speedy horse to slow down. If not - the slow horse.

well I do hunters, but I wanna try barrel racing so that'd be fun with a speedy horse. :)

I'm with Kitten, I prefer one right in the middle, but if I had to choose one or the other, I think I would choose a speedy beast. There is nothing I hate worse than having to constantly pedal a horse just to keep them going, that takes all the fun out of it for me.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

I dislike both extremes. I've got Tango, whose only speed is go, and I always longed for an old, half-dead trail horse that I would never have to fight with. That is...until I rode a couple school horses that pretty well did my knees in because I was having to keep constant, hard leg pressure and keep tapping and prodding them on. If I could find a horse that's right in between, I would be so happy.
