When I was getting my mare, I had several people nearly beg me to get my money back and not drive almost three states away to get her.
Almost everyone I talk to shy away and think mean and snobby with a horrible trot for riding. But personally I find her gait to be the most comfortable thing I've been on. And her temperament is beyond amazing.
They're beauty is beyond anything else I've seen, too. I'm talking about their natural gait, not the one that is furthered by training. Bunny's trot is so graceful, poll at the proper place and her back rounded, all just while playing in the pasture!
Their versatility too, beyond being just cart horses, I take Bunny on trails, LONG (25mile) rides, gymkhana and how much she loves jumping is incredible!
I could go on... (:
