Depends on what your goals is and what your skill level is: a mustang might be agreat horse but not to unskilled rider. Or would a drafie you pick the breed make a good cow horse or race horse. And there are allot of others that are good horses but not for every use.

Exactly. All horse breeds are good ones. It is all a matter of what you are wanting to do with it and what your personal preferance is. For example; you may love fresians, but you want to get involved in reining. Not a good match. A QH, Paint, Appy, or another type of stock horse would be the best match for reining. :)

Lol, you know what? I am going to get me a Friesian and teach it to rein. Spin, flying lead changes sliding stops and roll backs. All of it.

I'm going to do it. I am.

Yes, and even within the breed, it depends a lot on the horse...what they have skill for and what they enjoy doing. You can tell when a horse really enjoys their work, and when you can match that 'heart' to what your goals are, you have a gem in the making.

I agree with what everyone else said. Quarter horses are pretty versatile. TBs good for jumping but not really for beginners. Quarter horses and paints are normally what you see in the western show ring. TN Walkers are good trail horses. I've heard good things about Trakehners and Oldenburgs for upper level dressage. I think you can train any type of horse for any style of riding, but they're probably not going to be as good as the breeds especially for that particular style of riding, so if you're looking to go pretty far in the discipline, get a horse for that discipline. Like everyone else said, it all depends on what you want. :)

Thanks, everyone for the advice. I am leasing a horse right now, but I want to but one that is a jumper, but is at least a quarter of an arab.
