If someone asked me two years ago what I thought of Quarterhorses... i'd have said that they were horrible, ly least like breed, and just in general put together rather ugly... but that was because I've grown up around gaited horses and all quarterhorses I'd ever seen had been put together strangly with too big or too small heads, short, thick necks, long backs, and no rear and had very short, wispy manes and tails. Yeah, can't really blame me for not liking them...
Now, though... while they're not my favorite breed, they're in my top five and i'd like to own a Quarterhorse in the future... though I do find them rather bumpy to ride, but I guess I'm just used to my smoother gaited horses. I like them and find the well put together ones very nice looking and very good horses in general. I love the ''Doc Bar'' Quarterhorses the best.
