Breed to choose

Hello,

I wonder what breed of horse is best, because I want to begin to mount.

I've been watching the web sale of horses | horses for sale | Andalusia | Spanish | purebred | pre and I can't decide which is the best.

That's all very well explained, with videos and family tree. The only thing that I don't know is which to choose.

Thanks in advance.

What type of riding would you be doing with him/her?

The only thing that comes between me and my horse is the saddle!<3

My Opinion,

Quarter Horses for Ranch
Paints for Western Show
Warmbloods for Dressage/jumping/english
Arabians for english/trail/endurance

You seem very interested in spanish breeds. Have you tried looking at an Azteca. Its a newer breed that is kind of common around where I live. Theyre bigger and thicker than the breeds you chose so they are hardier. However they still have the big flashy gaits. I would watch the type of horse you get however. Horses like these and arabians can be VERY touchy and a new or inexperienced rider, or even just a rider who doesnt suit them can ruin them very quickly. I generally consider QH's the best kind of horses to start with because theyre calm and generally forgiving. And when you feel your as far as you can go with the QH, with professional opinions then you might be in the market to look for a bigger flashier horse.

I love the Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and paints. They all have great dispositions and very versatile.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and its rider.

Or...you could just get an Appy and do all of them on alternate weekends...saves a lot of feed and vet bills...
