Talking Horse trivia!

In this game, I will ask the hardest equine question I can think of. Whoever answers the question gets to ask the next question and so on. The question can be about ANYTHING...a breed, tack, grooming, riding, etc. Anything that has to do with horses; english or western or whatever! You can also do a multiple-choice type thing.

Another note: there is NO LIMIT to how many questions any one person can answer.

If you think someone got an answer WRONG, post what you believe to be the correct answer, and explain why you think theirs is wrong and yours is right. In order to do this, though, you have to answer the trivia question they posted, along with your answer that they got wrong. Then you can post your own question. I hope that makes sense! It seems a little confusing at first, but once you get into the swing of things, its really alot of fun, and educational too!

Also, if no one is getting your question, just post the answer and ask another one!

Here is an example:

Person #1: What breed of horse is most commonly used for track racing?

Person #2: Thoroughbred. What type of flap does a Dressage saddle have: straight or forward?

Person #3: Forward. What breed of horse is built for speed over a quarter-mile?

Person #4: I think Person #3 got Person #2's question wrong...he said a Dressage saddle's flap is forward, but it is actually straight, because a forward flap is meant to help a rider mantain balance with a short stirrup length, while a straight flap aids in keeping the leg long and relaxed, as is desired in Dressage. The answer is actually a straight flap.
The answer to Person #3's question is a Quarter Horse.
Why do horses crib and wood chew?

And so on. So here's my question to you:

What breed of pony originated in Ireland?

For protection but also because they are highly sociable and like company!

it is a problem with the feet, seen most commonly as the toes turned up.

Why do studs run off their sons in a wild herd?

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
