My barn manager rides one they bred on the ranch. Legato is smart, sassy, and sweet as she can be. A few of the horses have a slightly cranky nature (all get from one pissy mare!) but on the whole, they are all well trained, well behaved horses. Many of them are retired show horses - the old stallion died last year at the young age of 30. In his day he was all of that and a bag of chips. He was a sweetheart. They gave children's lessons on that old boy.
If I was going to get another horse it would be an Arabian. They can go and go and go and be ready for more. You have to love their spirit and spunk! My QH Biscuit channels his distant Arabian past on occasion with his tail flagging as he runs around the pasture!
