I would look into the Bashkir Curlies. They are easy to train, come in a variety of sizes and body types, have AMAZING feet and legs, and are great for endurance and trail riding. They are extremly smart and you usually have to stay one step ahead of them in their mind process, but they keep you on your feet! lol Their personalities are soooo mellow, they have puppy dog personalities. Look into them! PM me if you want more information...
