How many different breeds have you ridden?

Last week, while in Italy, I got to ride an Italian "Murgese". I find it a bit fun to keep track of the different equine breeds I have ridden since I was a child. To date now I have ridden 34 different great races of horses.

Shetland, POA, Welsh, Akhal Teke, Appaloosa, Andalusian, Paint, Palomino, Criollo, Barb, TWH, Clydesdale, Canadian, Trotter Franšais, Selle Franšais, Haflinger, Peruvian Paso, Arab, Saddlebred, Shagya, Friesan, Buckskin, Lusitano, Paso Fino, Morgan, Donkey, Mule, Mustang, Thoroughbred, Trakener, Holsteiner, Quarter Horse, Tinker and Murgese.

How many and what special breeds have others been lucky enough to try out?

QH, Appy, Arab, TB, Paint and a mixture of grade mutts. Buckskins and Palominos are not breeds but colors

Not many I don't think...

Arabian, haflinger, percheron, QH, paint, draft cross, mustang, dutch warmblood, and grades.

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

I agree that in today's modern world many people find color registeries controversial but the PHBA and the IBHA would disagree that Buckskin and Palomino are simply colors. Although Buckskin, Dun and Grulla coloring can be found in many breeds, modern genetic testing has allowed for specific ancestrol tracing and historical documentation of lineage for both breeds.

Many countries have their own breeds that don't fall into an international registry. Here there is also a very popular horse referred to as the Franche Montagna. They are a very hardy all-around breed. Very popular for trail riding, driving and used by the military.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Mini-burro, tons of QH's, TB, Paint, Mustang, one Percheron, one Belgian Mule, and maybe soon, a Belgian horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
