I personally prefer the look of a good ASH - a bit finer than a QH and I am a stickler for a good neck set - I much prefer a higher set neck with a proud arch and not too bully. A lot of QH have the lower set neck which is quite thick.
For camp drafting, I also prefer the ASH. The QH are improving as more are bred specifically for the sport, but in general the QH are good in the camp but can struggle to run as well outside. The TB influence gives the ASH a longer stride and a bit more ability to keep balanced while galloping around a circle shouldering a beast.
Of course there are lots of QH I do like - but I also really enjoy ASH shows and you need an ASH registered horse to compete at them. Though my colt is 1/4 QH, he will still have ASH registration.
After saying all that the horse I'm buying to ride when I get home is a full cutting bred QH, no ASH, lol!
