Looking into rider's perception of breeds / types

Hi guys, for my third year university dissertation I've decided to look at horse rider's perception into TB's and cobs.

There's so much research on perception of breed in dogs, but nothing in equine, hence why my dissertation is quite important for the equine science world. It'd be awesome if you could help me out and be a part of my research

The link to the survey is here : https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RX6LDNM

Thank you so much in advance! The more responses I get, the better my study will be!

I looked at your survey and noticed that a lot of the behaviours you have associated with each breed are less breed issues and more training issues.

I agree with Drafty.

Majority of so called problems with anxiety, tension or being hot can stem purely from the rider.

Cobs are a type and not a breed as such. They can also be very unpredictable and many learn their own strength which they use to their advantage.

Regardless of breed, whether it is a dog or horse or even a child, training, understanding, consistency in all interactions makes the world of difference.
