Favourite riding breed/favourite general breed?

My favourite breeds of horses to ride are Quater horses and Welshies. QH- I love the way they hold themselves. I particually love this QH I ride at my riding center. He is really forward moving and has a great trot.
Welsh- Are just fun to ride.

Love clydesdales as well. They're gorgeous.

Arabians are my first love.

As for riding, after I bought my first mare, a grade Quarter Horse, I've been a QH girl. I just love their sensible mind and versatility.
I've only ridden one of these each, but I've also enjoyed a Belgian/Thoroughbred cross for just being one of the best minded, athletic and talented horses and a Connemara/Hanoverian for being the perfect size for me and quite talented as well. I would love to ride more of these crosses and see if others are similar.

I don't know if I could pick just one. There are a lot of breeds with completely different characteristics that I like. It depends on my mood what breed of horse I feel like riding. If I'm in a mellow mood, I want the QH. If Im in a mood to just get on and go I want the TB. If Im in more of a technical mood, I want the WB. It changes day to day what my favorite is.

I Love Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and Paints. But I have had an Arabian cross and loved riding her.

I've had a selection of breeds of ponies and horses all my life and have distinct preferences depending on what discipline.

But particular favourites are TB and Arab and if I could only have one breed it would be TB or else I'd cheat and persuade folks an Anglo Arab was a breed in it's own right

Arabians for me
Although I have ridden everything from Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses
And lots of mixed breeds as well

I'm partial to Quarter Horses. I've been around them all my life, and even helped train a few. I think that they are good because they carry themselves well, and arent as "spooky" as some breeds, but still have a lot of spunk when you ask them for it.

horse, quaterhorse, welsh
