Have to agree with Spastic. Breeding good quality, registered, well conformed horses is fine; in fact, it is a must for nearly every show and many working industries. However, many people who just want a horse to have a horse would do well with a rescue. Rescues and adoptions fit my needs perfectly because I am saving a life and I don't really need a specific type or breed of horse. Almost any horse can be taught to do and withstand the type of ranch/trail work that I do but if I were into racing, cutting, reining, jumping, dressage, etc., then I would want a horse that was bred for it and would win.
