the best horse i ever rode was a palomino gelding, with some appaloosa and quarter horse thrown in. he was mostly all white, with some appy spots under his tail. he was a sight to see

he was an all-around horse that i could ride western pleasure, trail, barrels, poles, whatever. when he was 25 yrs old, we won the "high-point" trophy of the year in our saddle club.

i could put babies on him and he would calmly walk around, or an experienced rider could go out and win on the barrels.

this horse could do no wrong in my book, and i was so saddened by his loss. he was struck by lightening and killed when he was 28.

i was also very spoiled by him, as i find myself comparing all other horses to him. and there is no comparison....

so you agree with me..

the horse who taught me to ride.. well actully the two horses, were both crossbred.

the first horse lacey (taught me to ride for a year walk, trot, canter) was a draft cross. no one really knew what she was, just that she was the best horse in the barn. she was known for sticking ehr tounge out when you rode her (:P) and she was a great horse

the other cross bred who taught me to ride was a off-bay pony named snickers. she carried me through my first jumping and galloping!! she taught me that she was a lazy pony you had to kick every stide to keep her going.. but when you went outside to gallop she got so excited that she bucked me off a number of times until i learned to ride it..

I've got a Swedish warmblood x quarter horse. The quarter horse leveled out the attitude in the sw and the both of them together have made a very athletic horse

Mercury - 2002 bay tb gelding
Cobalt - 2006 bay sw warmblood x QH gelding
Cricket- 1996 chestnut tb gelding

Bella Blues - 2007 Australian shepher/Blue heeler mix
Titan W. - 2008 Jack Russell Terrier

Crosses are great, simply because you can get the best of your 2 fav. breeds! =]
