Appy lovers; why do you love the breed?

Well for one thing they have to be one of my favorite breeds. I always live riding something different because almost every show I've been to all you see is bays, chestnuts, etc. I love riding horses that are so uniquely colored and draw attention.

Secondly, they are so strong willed (aside from the stubbornness of course!) one of the best horses I've ridden was an App mare.

Share your expierences and why you love the breed! :)

I've met a few Appaloosas. {They} were quirky (which I really love) they could be sweet as pie and then just a challenge in the blink of an eye. They're unique and stunning. I love the striped hooves (my horse has one.) I like the reverse appy markings, especially the ear tips! They were built well and weren't too tall or too small.

The one I rode was very smooth and had a lot of pep.

I've grown up with Appys all my life- my aunt and uncle breed them. They are such sweethearts, with so much personality. And of course, they have such unique colouring!

Versatility, hardiness, and personality, although the personality can get under some people's skin when their appytude surfaces. Personally, I like appytude...if I wanted to ride a machine I would go to an amusement park...

SPOTS! And they are also hardy like said before.

I have always thought of Appys as the "guerilla war horse" ; bred to be thinkers who take care of their riders. The ones that still have the single foot gait are even better. I fell in love with the breed after a couple years riding a half Appy named Sun. He was the smoothest ride and when we were on bushy trail, I knew I could point him at a steep hill, drop the reins and he would always find us the best way up. I am not sure where Appys got a bad rap for attitude from some. My old neighbour had a herd of 30 odd head and all were good sound working horses.
