    I find angloarabs are easier to work with as well. Maybe that's just my own experience with arabians.

    I think arabs have lots of talent in the Dressage feild, there elevated movenment, and build can offer alot in the dressage arena. I like Warmbloods in the dressage arena, only simply because they are big, powerful and have fantastic breath taking movenment.
    To start off, I wouldnt go past a QH or ASH

    If your going for 3rd,4th and Grand Prix, then I suggest a warmblood.
    1st and 2nd you could choose a Thoroughbred, Warmblood, Arabian, whatever (with the conformation and training, of course). Below that, pretty much any breed will work.
    Personally, I think it's more about the heart and training then the breed itself.
    Good luck!
    I agree totally :)

    It's really your choice. I guess Warmbloods might be good. But I've seen a couple of Arabs do Dressage.

    I agree with delregans way! ASH all the way!
    I am a bit biased though...
    Also, I have an Arab and he is super at dressage, very trainable. I'm just not into the higher levels.

    I have an Arab and I've seriously considered trying some dressage with him. He seems to do it naturally.
