    [QUOTE=Gleek;1395799]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.QUOTE]
    Have you EVER considered a Welsh/QH cross? I met one a few years back.

    She was ~ 15hh, well built and drop dead gorgeous. She was a buckskin with black points and that didn't hurt, either, lol!
    The owners trail ride her and told me that they show her hunter. They said that she turns heads everwhere they take her.
    OH, I love Arabians, but QH's are pretty much the most versatile breed, IMHO.

    My favourite breed is the Thoroughbred. I have 3 TB's. I have also ridden more TB's than any other breed of horse, so I guess it is just what I am used to. I really like everything about them, maybe sometimes in certain situations not so much the high adrenaline and how quickly they can get it going!

    Ugh. Drool! QH/WELSH! I'd really love a QH/Clydesdale though!

    I like TBs, but you can't beat a good TBx. Irish Sports Horses, or WBxTBs, HighlandxTB, Cleveland Bay x TB, Connemara x TB... I've ridden all of these crosses and they're fab. TB's are intelligent and athletic, and the crossbreds tend to be a bit more chilled out and a bit hardier for living out. My current boy is mostly TB with a bit of danish warmblood in him... and I think it's the warmblood in him that makes me like him so much. I don't think we'd click quite as well if he were pure TB!

    Oh he is gorgeous! Im not a fan of TB's though. They're basically the only thing for sale here and i'm not interested. I don't like their build.

    I resisted for a long time, telling myself I liked something cob by instead, like my last horse, who was an Irish Draught x Welsh Cob. But I've been converted a by a string of very nice TBs and TB crosses particularly I've ridden in the last few years, culminating in getting Fitz... I agree, they are very curvy and often a bit short in the back and leggy, but when you cross them with something else they often turn out quite nice... hence why I like Fitz, he's much more boxy than a pure TB would be.

    What kind of breeds do you like instead of TBs? Something chunkier?

    Saddlebreds all the way. I love their mischievous attitude and how people centered they are.
