I am kind of on a slow and steady hunt forthe perfect horse breed for me. While at my most recent lesson, I rode a 25(!) year old Dutch warmblood. I have never ridden this breed but, man, did I love it! Wonderful, floating canter, and really good height (she was only 14hh! Perfect for me.) I really liked her because she just seemed to have a real spark of intelligence, and her movement was so nice. She also had a really cute face that reminded me a bit of an arabian.
I don't really know ANYTHING about this breed at all. When I hear warmblood I think jumper or dressage, I also think like 17hh, but I guess dutch warmbloods are different? Are they a good all-around horse?
