The thing about Brumbies is they aren't bred - They breed. Big difference. They are tough, sturdy little ponies but it is pot luck wether they will be good or not - Conformation and temperament isn't something that goes into breeding them, as opposed to purpose bred horses. For a stud prospect I would say a big N-O.

There was one at EquineX on the weekend, but no, I don't personally know anyone who has one. I did meet a beautiful Morgan stallion in America at the barn we rode at - He was amazing. DJJJ Ebony Gold - TaylorMade Stables

*raises hand* I have a Morgan!
I would have to say 1) Morgans! They are so versatile and come in so many shapes and sizes. Plus, one of the breed characteristics is tough hooves, so minimal hoof work needs to be done! Plus, they have fire and spirit, but are calm at the same time.
2) would be QH's or Paints
3) Eh...... Arabs aren't my favorites, as most I've worked with have been crazed, spooky hotheads-no saying they all are-, so I would probably go with a horse native to Australia for #3.

Here's my Morgan mare's threads:

There is a few, just not really around here.

This guy is probably my favourite Aus Morgan - Ranchboss Cortez.

A breed that's a good doer, copes well in the harsh Australian heat as well as the cold. Something that's level headed, intelligent and willing.

What do you think??
Quarter horses. I was told by someone once that they are the "golden retrievers" of the horse world.

I vote the AQH as well. I have two, they are the most versatile breeds. Gunther looks and moves good in all Western events as well as in English events. They are just so willing to please and have a competitive nature at heart. Those two combination's will get you anywhere! They are a great family horse as well.

They truly are the golden retrievers of the horse world..
