The Most Popular Breed of Horse?

Around where I live (north western Indiana)
Everybody seems to have at least one Quarter Horse, or Paint
Is it pretty much the same everywhere else?

Lots of Arabs and TBs around here in addition to QHs and Paints, but of course, I'm sure you can tell what we're partial to

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Welsh ponies, thoroughbreds, appendixes, and warmbloods by me. Well, I tend to mostly see hunter/jumpers so year...

I think QH are definitely the most 'popular' horse around, but TBs are the most common!

Depends on which barn you go to in my area. At the English barns, TB's. At the western barns, Paints, QH's and Arabs.

Warmbloods here followed by TBs but we are near spruce meadows so that would be why.

I find in Australia we have a lot of Thoroughbreds, so they are the most common, and a lot of people seem to like them. Some Arabs as well, occasionally a quarter horse or stocky, but I would say mainly Thoroughbreds.
