Andalusians for me! I love their personalitys and just how they carry themselves. They excel in so much, but for me it's Dressage. I am blessed to be able to own 2 Andalusian crosses, and ride a few others daily!

I love my arabians. They're my favorite breed in general and to ride. I've never had as much fun on horseback as I have on my arabians.

I like the quickness of QH/Paints...they can take you right to a gallop in a couple strides and stop on a dime.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I love riding small drafts and draft crosses. They're so smooth and comfy. I rode a Perch/Thoroughbred once, and he was like a big, warm couch. I could have fallen asleep on him.

Norm is like that too, except not nearly as well trained. He has the nicest trot I've ever ridden. He's just so darn tall. It's a looong way down.

I love Arabians, National Show Horses, Saddlebreds, and Miniatures. I've done saddle seat most of my life, so I have a bit more experience with these guys. They're just so much fun to ride! I also showed Minis for a couple years and I don't think I've ever had as much fun showing and working with horses than I did with Minis.

My favorites are my Icelandic mare Toppa, for long trail rides, my appendix mare Julie for just getting out and about with no where to go, and my Paint stud Romeo if I need to cover ground.

Haflingers, Mustangs and Paso Finos.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Fjords, Arabians and I really liked a lumbering Breton mare I rode a little while ago. But my Zangersheide and a certain little Polish-Bred Sports horse own my heart and soul. I'd die for a Coldblood Trotter or Finnhorse though, they are just so perfect!

My favourite are Latvian Warmbloods, draft type - not only because they are our local breed and widespread here, but also because they are generally mild tempered, friendly, endurante and all-purpose - able to trek, jump, pull carriages, you name it.

But I am absolutely sure I will own a Welsh Cob some day, too. They are just gorgeous and seem to fit my needs.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
