I like qh's too! although they tend to be a bit shorter than what i'd like, they are very versatile and athletic. The majority of the lessons horses I've ridden have been quarter horses, and they always seem to have an easy going personality. My friend had a quarter pony growing up, and he could be ornery at times but point him at any jump and he knew his job.
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. ~Winston Churchill
