I find angloarabs are easier to work with as well. Maybe thats 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.
