If You Were a Horse, What Kind of Horse Would You Be?

I'm sure we've all thought about being horses at some point in our lives...
So what kind of horse would you be? What breed, colour, and discipline, etc? Would you be a horse that you would want to own (as a human)?
Pictures optional.

I'd like to say I'd be a cute little Haflinger or something, lol, but honestly I'd picture myself as a solid dark bay OTTB...tall and thin (which I am) and kind of eccentric, somewhat needy, both emotionally and health-wise, lol...I'd probably do dressage.
I don't think that would be a good match for me to own. I love TBs but they aren't the right horses for me. I may be needy but I do awfully with very needy horses, lol

I would probably be a Percheron/Arab cross. Weird, I know lol. Like a Percheron, I'm tall and muscular, proud, intelligent, and I'll work from sun-up til sun-down if I have to. I'm also able to adjust and do many different things. I'm an easy-keeper and it doesn't take much for me to get a little pudgy lol.

I'd be crossed with an Arab because I can get hot-headed and flighty. Sometimes, I just like to race around for no apparent reason and act crazy. I'd be Palomino..even though none of these horses come in Palomino. I'm blonde and I usually have a nice farmer's tan year-long.

I'd be used for dressage, jumping, and carriage pulling. Also, I'd be used for trails on the weekends and I would enjoy that very much.

I'd love to own a horse like this lol. Its be amazing.

Edit: I'd look like this horse...except palomino and taller.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I think I'd be a mutt. Probably a QH crossed with something...a pony breed, probably. A pony because I'm an easy keeper and am rarely sick and I'm the most stubborn person I know. A QH because I'm extremely laid-back, and it takes a lot to rile me up. They're also good at various disciplines, which I would enjoy, but would mostly prefer trails. I'd be small but built like a stock horse, and as for colour...I don't know. Maybe paint, because I've got brown hair and tanned arms and face year-round, but my legs are a never-changing white

This is really cool! I think I would be like a racing qh, i'm pretty fast but sucky at endurance.. maybe do some barrels, trails and a little jumping exparamentation.. LOL And color, I always think a coppery chestnut! :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I think I'd be a dutch warmblood or similar, probably bay or black. Quite tall but filled out, but not porky!

I can be stubborn as heck, I don't give up on anything but I get excited and emotional easily! I think I'd do cross country or show jumping, I love the thrills and the adrenaline rush of jumping, even on foot (:

Mount up and leave your troubles behind on the ground.

I would be a black quarter horse. I love quarter horses and I paticularly like black ones.

I think that, if based off my personality, I would be a semi-tall horse with a really level head because I rarely get worked up about much and I'm pretty sturdy.I'd be very easy to teach anything and be very versatile. An all around horse; a jack off all trades. Id be albino because I'm (literally, no joke) albino. That might prove to be tricky for whoever owns me in the summertime, but not too tough to handle.

If I could be any horse based off of what I'd want to be, I'd be Mystic Warrior, the 3/4 Friesian 1/4 Appaloosa.

I would probably be a Shetland since I am so stubborn and I can be obnoxious.

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/
