Quarter Horses are generally considered a 'working breed'. There more known for doing 'ranch things' like barrels, poles, cutting, sorting, roping, etc.

Thoroughbreds are lighter, sleeker horses bred mainly for racing, but also excel wonderfully in other disciplines. I've read stories of many off the track Thoroughbreds whom found successfully carriers in all sorts of things, mainly English riding.

I'm not to familiar with Warmbloods. I do know that there generally very expensive and are used extensively in English riding such as Dressage and jumping.

Wait! I'll fix it....

Twogeldings is correct, but of course they can all be trained to other disciplines.
Quarter horses can jump, and TB's can be used in western riding.
It just depends how they're trained.

twogeldings is right about QHs and TBs.

Warmbloods are crosses between cold-blooded horses (drafts) and hot-blooded horses (Arabians and TBs).
