Quarter horses

Can quarter horses be bumpy to ride or are they smooth? I have been looking into getting a quarter horse but I am not a fan of bumpy horses...so would this be a good fit for me?

Depends...Some quarter horses have smoother gaits then others, like my QH has a slightly bumpy trot, and my other QH has all smooth gaits.
Like I said, it really depends.

My quarter horse is super smooth and goes into gaits without a problem.

My horse is a grade quarter horse... she is pretty bumpy, but I'm no riding expert!!!

Has she foundered in the past?

My friend leased a QH, it was the bumpiest horse EVER, but the BO has a little QH that she let's people ride, and he's super smooth, like a moving chair, lol so it really depends on the horse. That's a cute horse!

Both the bumpiest and the smoothest trotting horses I've ever ridden were both Quarter Horses, no lie.
Hugely varied, you'll have to ride 'em and find out.

Thanks for all the help..I guess I will have to ride Rocky (the horses name) to find out..........Also does he look like a quarter horse cause I am still not sure?

Hmmm...may be. Their looks tend to vary, too. But I'd say probably...? Do they say he is?
