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. :)

Ohhhh that would be fun! Scarey too lol.
My next thing is to do hunting! Maybe the boxing day hunt?

I prefer happy medium!

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.

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.
